#freethemoose of Beer, Root Beer, Corporate Bullying

Hi Folks,

There is a small brewpub in Lake George NY that has pissed off the Oland Brewery in Nova Scotia.

Article including links to the complaint and a petition @ http://www.syracuse.com/drinks/index.ssf/2015/11/moosehead_vs_moose_wizz_an_ups.html

Moose Whizz Root Beer is delightful stuff (as are their craft beers)
Moosehead and other Oland beers are typical products of large north American brewers. Not crap but also not craft.

It seems the Moosehead folks are suing the smaller craft brewery over their use of not only "Moosehead" but "Moose" as well. It seems they've owned both since 1931. (Oh, Moose Jaw est 1901 you should be trembling in your winter boots).

I like innovation, humor, and craft beers. Corporate bullying is not something I like, so I signed the petition.

I thought there may be some like minded people here who might like to know.

Thanks

David

    Breweries are suing each other over beer names these last few years like it's going out of style.
