MechaHopzilla Gets NOLA Brewing Sued

A witty name for a hoppy beer has gotten NOLA Brewing Co. stuck in a lawsuit.  Toho Co. Ltd. is claiming that NOLA’s MechaHopzilla that was released last year infringes on currently held trademarks.

The lawsuit covers not only the name but also the image that appears on the can (seen above). According to, NOLA applied for a trademark for the name before selling the beer for the first time in 2012.
