Churchill Estate Issues Cease & Desist

Cigar City Church On A HillThe image of Churchill will NOT appear on the  upcoming Swamphead/Cigar City collaboration.  The barleywine dubbed “Churchhill” has been renamed to Church On A Hill.  Why? The Churchill estate issued Cigar City a cease & desist order.  The Churchill Estate maintains a copyright on his writings, works, and according to the foundation – images.

The barleywine collaboration features 2 beers – an English version, and an American version brewed at each brewery, to be released simultaneously.  The American edition is dubbed Roosevelt.

The bottles will be released soon. (Once the re-labelling takes place.)
