Can there ever be too much of a good thing? That's the question in Highland, where Prost Brewing has been making and serving beer since 2012 -- and now an outpost of a Frisco concept, Prost Fine Beer and Sausages, is slated to start serving beer and sausages this month. The two are not connected...except by about a mile or two of pavement. The owners of both Prosts say they're not concerned about confusion...but what about customers?
I certainly appreciate the desire to co-exist and not litigate or pursue other adversarial paths, but this is nuts. Trademarks exist for a reason, to prevent brand confusion. These two will have problems that they will need to figure out.
What other name-game problems have you spotted in Denver? At one point, the city was slated to have not one, not two, but three unrelated O Bars. (Ultimately, it got just one: Obar next to Little Ollie's in Cherry Creek.)
