Barbed Wire Brewing Name Change

AUSTIN - Startup brewery Barbed Wire Brewing was forced to abandon their name after receiving legal papers from Sutter Home, who is attempting to trademark their Barbed Wire wine, as reported by Patrick Beach of the Austin American-Statesman this week.

Rather than enter a struggle for the legal rights, owner Jim Sampson and his partners decided an easier course of action was to change the name of their enterprise to Twisted X Brewing Company. This brewery is still in the planning and development stages.
