Minneapolis, Minnesota’s 612Brew is in a bit of a legal kerfuffle with the Motion Picture Association of American (MPAA).
The brewery’s most popular offering “Rated R” Rye India Pale Ale caught the attention of the MPAA (or more specifically, their lawyers) prompting a cease & desist over the term “Rated R”. In this instance it mean, “rye” and the drink is definitely for those 21 and older.
In response to the C&D, the brewery has changed the name to Unrated Rye IPA.
The details of the C&D have not been disclosed.
Thanks to Brendan Palfreyman of Harris Beach for the legal overview.
