Lagunitas Founder Tweets He’s Dropping Sierra Nevada Suit

Lagunitas founder Tony Magee is one of the most open craft brewery owners on social media. He’s always sharing his thoughts about brewery ownership, and even legal matters on Twitter.

This evening he states he learned a lesson in regards to today’s news about Lagunita’s infringement suit again Sierra Nevada. The court of public opinion is a rough one.

Tony Magee mentioned 140 characters at a time that he was testing the waters to see how legally defensible his trademarks for IPA actually are. As “the worst day in the 23 years of Lagunitas” he plans on dropping the infringment suit against Sierra Nevada as early as Wednesday, January 14th.

  1. There are only so many ways to properly kern the letters I, P and A. The Lagunitas guy (and his lawyers) are morons and deserve every bit of backlash they receive.

  2. One more sentence about the infringement suit would have been nice. I knew nothing about this previously, so is the suit about the recipe, brewing process, packaging design, bottle shape and color? What?
