A Missoula Brewery Drops Their Lawsuit Against Anheuser-Busch

Posted: Updated:


A Missoula brewery, known locally for their amazing beers, has just dropped their lawsuit against an internationally known corporate giant. Big Sky Brewing Co. recently sued Anheuser-Busch in December, claiming they took their 9 year old trademark phrase, "hold my beer and watch this," to use in their Bud Light YouTube videos. Amheuser-Busch debuted these videos early on in December, where they received millions of views.

Neal Leathers, the Pres./Co-Founder of Big Sky Brewing Company says, "It's great to have support from local brewers and just local folks and what not, basically saying don't let someone take that from you. And we are really glad that the final result was we didn't just let them take that from us."

Big Sky offered to drop the suit in exchange for Anheuser-Busch removing the videos. After they were taken down on the 15th, the craft brewer let go of all legal action, with no financial settlement.
