AB Sues Brick

Anheuser-Busch Cos. and Labatt Brewing Co. sued Brick Brewing Co., claiming the Canadian brewery is infringing their trademarks with the use of limes and the color green on its labels.

A-B and Labatt asked a Canadian federal judge to stop the Waterloo, Ontario-based Brick from using the images in advertising for Red Baron Lime beer because the image and graphics are too similar to Bud Light Lime.

The suit claims that Brick’s label will lead people to believe its Red Baron beer is associated with, authorized by or in some way connected with Anheuser.
