    Logo fight brewing between Bru and Brü
    Premium content from Business First by Dan Eaton, Staff reporter
    Date: Friday, January 4, 2013

    A legal fight over a logo is Bru’ing in Columbus. As the Columbus brew-your-own-beer business Brü debuted Dec. 30 at 1288 N. High St., it is facing a lawsuit from Bru Burger Bar, a casual restaurant from Indianapolis with sights on Central Ohio.

    ^ Anyone know what the rest of the article says? It requires a subscription. I hope this is just a minor speedbump in Columbus’ new Brewery District.

    (I agree 100% about the umlaut, I imagine it is something Bruno/Borat would add – LOL)

    The umlaut has also been done…

    Personally, I think this is similar to the ‘House Wine’ whining.

    That’s a pretty darn similar logo/font.

    They also seem to use it slanted.

    that’s what I was thinking. Make a change and move on is the best advice.

    I spoke to Gavin at Bru last week and he said that the brewery side of their business is already operating under the name of “North Nigh Brewing Company” and if they change the name of the bar side of the business, they might just change it to match.

    I don’t think it will effect operations much.

    It’s not like this is the first time this has happened to local breweries.

    Born Brewing changed their name to Seventh Son due to copyright/trademark issues with Budweiser:

    True. And don’t forget that Jason’s had to change its name to J. Liu’s when the Jason’s Deli chain decided it wanted to enter the Columbus market.

    These stories highlight the need for entrepreneurs to have a trademark clearance done before choosing a logo/name.

    It only takes a quick Google image search to make sure you’re mostly in the clear. I don’t get it.
