Description

The newest summer lager from Brick Brewing Co. comes with a chaser of litigation.

The small Waterloo, Ont.-based discount brewer said it has been slapped with a lawsuit alleging that its Red Baron Lime, which it began rolling out to stores two weeks ago, infringes trademarks and copyrights of Bud Light Lime, the popular brew introduced in Canada this year by Anheuser-Busch InBev SA and its Canadian division, Labatt Brewing Co. Ltd. The claim asks for damages and an injunction to prevent Brick from continuing to sell its lime beer.
