well, sh--

Well folks, we may be in the market for a name again here. Turns out there's a Republic Brewing Co. opening up in Austin, Tx in 2009. booooooo....... how dare they steal our name! especially since we've just handed out a hundred or so business cards at the conference with our name on it. So now we have to decide: do we change our name, or no? We were really shooting for an original name, but as we're about to start writing this business plan, it's really crunch time. What do you all think?

Nooooo!! Well, I still love that name, but I suppose that could be problematic. Are you planning on selling your beers out of state? If so, maybe that would be bad? I have no idea. Maybe you should ask a lawyer.

I say keep it. They don't own the name. Heck, they won't even open until 2009.

We're not gonna be open until 2009 either, and we don't plan on selling out of state. I emailed the Texas folks to see what they think. Unless it'll cause problems on their end, I don't see any issue with sharing.

Yeah if they don't have an issue with it, go for it.

Keep it.

There was another purple gang band before us. Not to mention the real purple gang. No one cared. Do it.
