Tough Luck In-Bev, the Austin market has been taken already by 512 Brewing..

Sweet a new "Math Series" of beers. Just what I want in a bottle...MATH. Looks like In-Bev wants my number...They can have it IDC at all, because I do not buy or drink BMC.

Those guys on that 99 bottles blog are always looking for a cause, maybe they should drink some beer instead of just crying about it.

I wonder if they will use the same recipe for '312' that Goose Island was using, except use water taken from the local supply.

It could be an interesting study in the way local water effects the final product...or maybe not...

It'll probably be the same beer, except with a different label. It could be done more regional though.

It could still be branded as goose island, I think that's pretty cool for them to take that kind of effort. If they were just saying "617 brewery" - than that's lame.

I think whoever is running the AB-Inbev rat circus needs the a$$ beatin of a lifetime. Pound there sorry behinds within a quarter inch of their avarice ridden lives.
If I was the judge,I'd laugh in their faces & throw them out! WTGDF!!!!!!!!! If they get away with that one,they'll copywrite every animal name,every slang name...you get the picture. We little guys won't have anything left to name our brews if/when we go commercial.
This crap has just plain got to stop!! They are getting waaaaay to greedy,to the point where even a total moron will say,"WTF?".:mad:

Not to defent In-Bev too much, but I don't think they're just trying to trademark anything they possibly can (I didn't read the article by the way). Goose Island, which they bought recently has a beer called 312, and I'm assuming they will call it the different area codes in different markets.
