Stone or Stone?

Stone Brewing is suing MillerCoors, alleging that the beer
giant's recent rebrand of its Keystone line is too close to the
San Diego brewery's name. MillerCoors' Keystone line of
light beers was rebranded to emphasize the "Stone" in the
Keystone name, putting it in a large font on the line's cans and
in the line's marketing. The can spells out Keystone's entire
name, but each syllable has its own line, and the can can be
rotated so only "Stone" is visible.

"Keystone's rebranding is no accident," Dominic Engels, chief
executive of Stone Brewing, said in a statement. "MillerCoors
tried to register our name years ago and was rejected. Now
its marketing team is making 30-pack boxes stacked high
with nothing but the word 'Stone' visible. Same for
Keystone's social media, which almost uniformly has
dropped the 'Key.' We will not stand for this kind of
overtly and aggressively deceptive advertising."Miller
Coors called the lawsuit a publicity stunt.

Stone is the ninth-largest craft brewer in the U.S., according
to the Brewers Association. It’s the 17th largest brewery
overall when you add in all U.S. brewers including Anheuser-
Busch, MillerCoors and Pabst. In 2017, Stone produced 12
million gallons of beer and  total revenue of $242 million,.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office turned down
MillerCoors' attempt to register "Stones" in 2007 and the
company "instead abandoned its application, admitting that
confusion with Stone beer was likely," the suit says.
