A-B has had "brewery" pubs at a large number of airports around the USA for many years.

It would make sense for them to trademark airport codes for brew designations.

Maybe Nantucket..? ACK Beer.

They'd better not go with Yuma. There's nothing YUM about a town that borders hell (no, not California).


Although New Belgium should jump on this bandwagon and open a place in Fresno for FAT Tire.

Or maybe PBR (Puerto Barrios, Guatemala)? It would have to really, really suck though.


Maybe A-B is onto something with this...I'm actually having fun thinking about this. I'm already grimacing thinking about beer from Charlotte or Cancun and I'm definitely against beer from Pensacola. I don't really roll that way.

I hope they make one for that one airport in Japan. FUK, that's a bad idea. (Sorry for being an ASE).

I SEA their point, and I think it's kinda clever.

It's pretty much just like their move last year to trademark a number of area codes as well. Last year, they acquired Goose Island Brewing, who has a beer called 312 Urban Wheat Ale (312 being a Chicago-area code), and this trademark filing on area codes followed a short time later:

The likely scenario here is that this will be one beer with many names depending upon where you find it. Using Las Vegas as an example (as they've trademarked both the airport code (LAS) and the area code), this beer would be sold at the airport under the "LAS" name and would be sold in bars outside of the airport under the "702" name. This beer is probably going to be draft-only, and I wouldn't be surprised if they take an existing beer that is already approved for sale in the places they're planning on selling this beer so they don't have to go through the process of getting that beer approved in each state, as even the label that gets put on the top of the keg has to get approved in many states.

Back when Miller Brewing Company was owned by Phillip Morris they trademarked all of PM's cigarette brands as beers. I saw a three ring binder full of the information back in 1999. There were sample labels for each of the brands too, it was very interesting. I want to say the dates for all of that stuff was 1978.

If they apply it to cheaper beer one could say: "man this beer really Sioux City Pensacola"
