May 10, 2019

Canarchy Craft Brewery Collective is the parent company of Oskar Blues Brewery, which sells a beer named Guns 'N' Rosé along with other merchandise (think t-shirts and buttons) sporting the same name, Pitchfork reported.

Oskar Blues sought to trademark the name Guns 'N' Rosé, but later discarded that plan when the band declined permission.

Guns-n-Rosé bands together sticky prickly pear and floral hibiscus with a subtle hop profile in this refreshing, crisp AF rose’ beer. Skip the fancy stemware and throw one back today. Guns-n-Rosé is available on draft, in select markets, and we’ll be droppin cans in February.

The band reportedly reached out to the brewery asking it to cease using its name and it agreed to stop in March 2020.
