Lexington, KY – One-year-old West Sixth Brewery is facing a lawsuit from Magic Hat Brewery claiming the Lexington brewer copied the logo for one of its beers.

Magic Hat asks for “West Sixth to account for and to pay over to Magic Hat all profits realized by West Sixth” for what the lawsuit claims is “irreparable harm” brought upon the company for the “confusingly and substantially similar” logos.

According to the lawsuit, Magic Hat’s #9 beer logo which was originally trade marked in 1995 and updated in 2007, was copied by West Sixth’s company logo which appears on its two canned beers and promotional materials.
