Okay, so I don’t have a whole lot to say on this topic, but I did want to address it.
Yes, I received a Cease and Desist (C&D) letter from an attorney representing another brewery over the name HOPASAURUS REX. Yes, I responded to that C&D like a child. Yes, I also had a lot of fun in acting like a child. Yes, I did include a drawing of a dinosaur waiving white flags in his little T-Rex arms. Yes, I had a lot of fun doing it.
But I didn’t do it with the intention of “going viral” or getting publicity for my brewery. I did it because that’s the kind of thing I do. I have no ill will towards the other brewery or the lawyer.
At the end of the day, I hope the main message are:
1) A lot can be solved if we just communicate with one another directly instead of always resorting to lawyers as the first option and
2) Please continue to support your local craft brewery, wherever you are!
That is all!
PS: A lot of you are asking about T-Rex with White Flags t-shirts… hmmmm… maybe. Lemme think about it.
