Default West Sixth start up brewery being sued by Magic Hat parent company over logo

http://beerpulse.com/2013/05/west-si...ing-9-logo-404

I don't think the parent company has a chance here, but you never know. I like Magic Hat, but I think this is absurd. What say you?

That is nuckin' futs! I never liked Magic Hat stuff anyway. Just gives me one more reason to not drink their stuff. If I could go to the tap room and buy a pint in KY, I would. Good luck to the folks at West Sixth Brewing!

I think it's absurd that a 9 is an upside down 6. Holy crap!



"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I'm just a caveman. I fell on some ice and later got thawed out by some of your scientists. Your world frightens and confuses me! Sometimes the honking horns of your traffic make me want to get out of my BMW.. and run off into the hills, or wherever.. Sometimes when I get a message on my fax machine, I wonder: "Did little demons get inside and type it?" I don't know! My primitive mind can't grasp these concepts. But there is one thing I do know - 6 clearly precedes 9. I rest my case."

I agree. We visited back in April and I was very impressed with what they have going. Hopefully they can keep rolling.

Well unfortunately I just bought a bunch of MH Encore but no more of their stuff after that's gone. I knew they were big but still thought they were run by real beer people and not a megacorp. What a ridiculous lawsuit. "Irreparable harm" my ass.
