Yellow Belly beer, brewed by Buxton Brewery, which is at the centre of a trademark dispute, will cease production.
An objection to the name Yellow Belly was raised by Batemans Brewery earlier this year. Batemans said the name Yellow Belly was too similar to its Yella Belly Gold.
Buxton Brewery said they spoke to Batemans over the telephone about the dispute, “but it was immediately apparent that there was absolutely no room for manoeuvre”.
Buxton said the two products were “distinct and entirely different in every conceivable manner”.
With over 22,000 breweries worldwide, Buxton said creating “truly unique and distinct” beer is becoming more difficult, and that protecting and honouring intellectual property “is something that all producers have a responsibility to do”.
