uncensored beer

The beer bullshit that the column told in September gained a new chapter with the decision of the 6th Civil Chamber of the State Court of Justice to revoke an injunction that prevented the Abbess from producing – and identifying on the label – helles beer throughout Brazil.

The ban had been in effect since June, because Fassbier had registered the name ''helles'' with the National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) and had obtained an injunction that prevented the competitor from using the designation. After having complained of ''censorship'', the Abbess registered that she is released. According to lawyer Vanessa de Oliveira Soares, from Cesar Peres Advocacia Empresarial, the merits of the matter will now be discussed in the lower court.

One of the judges who spoke out in the case compared the ban on the use of ''helles'' to the veto of the ''merlot'' designation in wines.
