La Cumbre Red Ryeot will soon be available in cans. The New Mexico based craft brewery is pretty excited to launch this new offering. In order to do so, the brewery needed to jump a legal hurdle.
Jeff Erway of La Cumbre discovered that Sierra Nevada had already made a beer called Red Ryeot (part of the ongoing Beer Camp Series). Being hooked on the name, Jeff reached out to Sierra’s founder Ken Grossman to inquire about the trademark. Unfortunately, Sierra had already applied for the mark.
Thinking the name was dead in the water, an email arrived from Grossman’s legal team abandoning the mark for La Cumbre. Red Ryeot was officially theirs. A fantastic example of how craft breweries work together.
La Cumbre Red Ryeot is a red rye beer that the brewery has been working on over the past few months. Soon to be available in 16oz cans.
Style: Rye Beer
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Year round offering.
