Queen Bey is blocking Brooklyn Lineup Brewing in Sunset Park from selling more of its “Bïeryoncé” beer, which was made in her honor, according to a report.
The singer fired off a cease and desist letter to the beer company demanding they shut down production of the beer, according to Pitchfork..
But the superstar is saying no-can-do to sales of the suds, in part because the beer label uses the same pink lettering that featured on her self-titled 2013 album.
Brewery owner Katarina Martinez has been selling the beersince October 2016. But trouble didn’t bubble up until she got the letter last month, she said.“
As a Hispanic, female-run business, I am very inspired by her so I thought I’d pay homage,” Martinez toldPitchfork. “
We’re disappointed she didn’t take it as a compliment, butoh well. It was fun while it lasted!”Martinez said she was inspired to brew the pilsner after she bought tickets to a Beyoncé show but could attend.
She plans to sell the remaining “Bïeryoncé” she has left then stop brewing it, the site reported.
