21st May 2012 - Legal Matters
Unfortunately, our single hopped beer that
was brewed using
only Stella hops from Australia has been re-branded after a complaint
from the legal team representing In Bev. The same beer will now be sold
using the name "Alias", although it will still be clear on the
label/pump clip that it is a single hoped ale brewed only
using Stella hops. We appreciate the support shown by
Twitter and beer bloggers, but hope you understand that we do not feel
it is worth risking our livelihoods and our passion for producing real
ales in order to fight this complaint.
Meanwhile, if any
shops are still stocking any of the 216 bottles of this beer that we
have produced, could you please contact us, so that we can arrange for
collection, reimbursement and destruction of the said bottles.
Can we politely request that owners of any
websites that have images of this beer on them, please remove those
