US beermaker files to trademark 'Brexit' hard cider

A U.S. beer company is seeking to trademark the term "Brexit" to use on a hard cider.

The Boston Beer Co., which makes Samuel Adams beer and Angry Orchard hard cider, applied to trademark the term last week, Politico reported.


The application came just a day after British voters chose to leave the European Union.

The trademark application was filed on an intent-to-use basis.

But others besides The Boston Beer Co., the second-largest craft brewery in the country, have also sought to trademark the term Brexit to be used for different products.

Another person from Chicago has reportedly also tried to trademark the term to use for clothing, and a Colorado company applied to use it for dietary and nutritional supplements.
