U.S. Supreme Court Decision Has Implications for the Craft Beverage Industry, Minnesota Beercast 6.23.17
It is the rare unanimous U.S. Supreme Court decision that attracts any attention, but when the case has implications for sports and beer….
Last Wednesday on 3 And Out we talked about the Matal v. Tam decision – which saw the Court invalidate the Lanham Act’s disparagement clause – in the context of the Washington Redskins and their racially-charged nickname. On Friday, I appeared on the Minnesota Beercast to discuss what the decision meant for Flying Dog Brewing and its “Raging Bitch IPA”, and a host of other breweries who seek to toe the line in naming their beers and breweries.
