Guns N' Roses Files Trademark Lawsuit Against Brewery Beer Name

May 10, 2019

Rock music and beer are a better pairing than peanut butter and jelly. Some bands have even jumped into the craft beer game and released their own brands of beer like Motörhead's "Live To Win", Iron Maiden's "Trooper Ale", AC/DC's "Australian Hardrock", and Pearl Jam's "Faithful Ale."

But according to a report by The Blast, Guns N' Roses has filed a trademark lawsuit against the Oskar Blues Brewery for releasing a beer called, "Guns N' Rosé." The band objected to the brewery's attempt to trademark the name, yet it appears that the brewery continued to sell and promote the beer.

The lawsuit claims that the brewery is not allowed to sell a product based on the image and name of Guns N' Roses without the band's permission, and is seeking unspecified damages.
