Artsquest has agreed to shell out some cash to end a lawsuit over beer steins.

Rebecca Stoneback and Michael Grube filed the suit earlier this year, claiming ArtsQuest sold beer steins at Musikfest that were advertised as being made in Germany when they were actually made in China.

An attorney said Artsquest has agreed to pay more than $2,000 to the plaintiffs, but Artsquest said that is not an admission of liability.

Stoneback is a former Artsquest employee. She filed a separate lawsuit claiming she was fired for refusing to sell the mugs.

Artsquest paid her a $25,000 judgment in that case but didn't admit to any wrongdoing.
