A Canadian beer giant is not happy with a local brewing company.
Moosehead Breweries contends the name “Mus Knuckle” is infringing on their trademark–essentially claiming they own the rights to the word “moose” within Canada’s beer industry.
Moosehead’s legal team has notified District Brewing—the company that makes Mus Knuckle—saying the name of the beer is confusingly similar to Moosehead.
District Brewing president Jay Cooke says his legal team is looking at their options and what the right approach to this matter should be, but he is telling customers that the beer will continue to be sold even it has to be sold under another name.
Mus Knuckle has been on sale on Saskatchewan store shelves since 2013 and is now distributed across Western Canada.
