Excuse the off-topic post – this is not about Joomla! but an entirely different matter altogether. It is however about community and about people sticking together to defend what’s right and just. What it boils down to is this: a Billion dollar energy drink conglomerate called Hansen Beverage Co, has told a small Vermont Brewery they must cease and desist making one of their beers because the name of the beer, the “Vermonster”, is too similar to Monster Energy Drink, one of Hansen Beverage Co’s products. Clearly this is absolutely ridiculous – please watch the video:
Now I’m not American, I was born and bred in *New Zealand, but this matter still concerns me gravely, and I think Hansen Beverage should know that distaste for their products has spread across the globe.
If you have read this far and watched the video then you are probably feeling as I am – you can take action in one of the following ways:
- Not buying Hansen Beverage products
- Telling people you know to stop buying Hansen Beverage products, especially Monster Energy Drink.
- If you blog then you can blog about this as I have.
- You can follow The Rock Art Brewery on Twitter
- Or visit the Rock Art Brewery Website
