“The F Word”

Recently, a bar owner in Missouri received a cease and desist letter from Starbucks because a beer sold at his bar was called a “Frappicino.” The letter stated that his beer must be re-named in order to circumvent any “confusion with Starbucks Coffee Co.’s Frappuccino mark. . .”

In order to prevent any mix-ups for all those bar patrons thinking they were ordering a coffee drink instead of a beer as the cease and order letter contemplated, this bar owner immediately renamed the beer at issue and sent a response I guarantee you won’t regret reading here. As a further tribute to Starbucks, you can now order the beer on tap as “The F Word.”
