Freetail Brewing Co. in San Antonio, Texas received a not-so-friendly cease and desist letter from a lawyer representing a brewery in Eugene, Oregon. The letter demanded they stop using "Hopasaurus Rex" as one of their beer names.
Freetail’s reply is without a doubt the best piece of legal correspondence we’ve ever read. We’re pretty certain you’ll enjoy it just as much as we did, so without further ado – here it is (in all of its friendly, relaxed, beer-culture glory)
Next time we’re in San Antonio we’ll have to stop by and try a Rye Wit, a 4Shadow, or maybe a Bat Outta Helles.
If we’re feeling bitter we could potentially grab a Hopothesis A. or a Phantom of the Hopera Dub’l IPA but all of the lawyers in Oregon can rest easy knowing we won’t be drinking any beers called Hopasaurus Rex.
