The Beer and Wine Battles Persist

On November 28, 2016, Sutter Home sued Shmaltz Brewing for infringing its Menage a Trois trademark for selling 12-packs of beer under the MANNAge a Trois trade name.  Here is the complaint and Shmaltz' website showing its use for a "3-way variety 12-pack" of its Hop Momma, Hop Manna and Hop Mania IPAs.  The lawsuit was dismissed on January 11, 2017 and the 12-pack remains sold, for now.
