The Thursday quote

“Between 2002 and 2009, it was illegal to brew a Saison in New Zealand or to import a beer called Saison, including classics such as Saison Dupont. Brewing giant DB had quietly trademarked the name in 2002 and kept the trademark long after they stopped brewing Monteith’s Saison in 2003. In 2009 DB voluntarily relinquished the trademark under pressure from the Society of Beer Advocates.”
