0 USA: Capital Brewery says it's No. 1, but Anheuser-Busch protests trademark

Capital Brewery in Middleton has called itself "America's Number One Rated Brewery" for almost ten years – and now it wants to make the title official by trademarking the phrase, Associated Press reported June 30.

But Saint-Louis-based Anheuser-Busch is protesting that effort. The brewing giant says the term should be untrademarked so every brewer could use it.

Capital president Carl Nolen says the brewery has used the phrase since 1998 when it was ranked first among US breweries at the Beverage Testing Institute's World Beer Championships.

The brewery - which brews about 17,000 barrels per year - applied for a trademark in 2005. But Anheuser-Busch submitted a challenge this month saying it's protesting the trademark effort, not Capital's right to use the phrase.

On Monday Capital will submit to Anheuser-Busch its justification for trademarking the phrase. Nolen says the company will have 30 days to review it before a federal court decides whether Anheuser-Busch's challenge has merit.

0 France: SABMiller to launch Peroni Nastro Azzurro in France

SABMiller plc, one of the world’s leading brewers, announces the launch of its premium Italian beer, Peroni Nastro Azzurro, in France, in a press release, July 4. To mark the occasion an exclusive party with celebrity attendance will be held at Zebra Square, the style bar in the heart of Monte Carlo.

Globally recognised as one of the most exclusive and stylish locations, Monaco is the perfect place to introduce the brand in France. Whilst overall beer consumption in the country is lower than some parts of Europe, research shows that there is certainly potential for growth in the international premium brands sector. This grew by 3% between 2004 and 2005 and is anticipated to accelerate in the next five years.*

Back in the UK, according to ACNielsen, Peroni Nastro Azzurro has entered the top 10 premium lager brands by volume and in the past 3 months it was one of only two beer brands to register an increase.

Chris Taylor, SABMiller International Brand Director for Peroni Nastro Azzurro, commented:

“We are very excited about the launch of the brand in France and the opportunities it presents. Whilst traditionally the country is better known for its ...
