Comments have been pouring out over the news that Dry Dock Brewing in Aurora (one of our "Top ten places to drink like a pirate"
) has to change the name of its acclaimed Seven Seas Double IPA
after getting a "nasty" letter from a lawyer representing 7 Seas Brewing Company in Washington.

As a craft brewer bigger than both the breweries involved I have to say the time for sizing up our legal dicks is wasted time and money. Figure it out without the legal threats, and realize we're all in the same game. Collaboration would have been a better idea. Keeping the lawyers out of it would have been a better idea. Having a beer or two together would have been a better idea. Come on, brewers, can't we all just get along?
And certainly, there's no better day to raise a glass or two than St. Patrick's Day.
