Magic Hat's beer can be found at most grocery stores in the Tri-State and West Sixth's can be found at some stores and many bars in the Greater Cincinnati area.
Magic Hat claims the issue started shortly after West Sixth opened. The company says it received calls from "people who were concerned about the similarities between the two brands."
The issue is mainly over the look of the West Sixth's logo and the logo of Magic Hat's trademarked #9 pale ale.
Both sides are claiming that they agreed to mediate the issue and appeared to be working toward an amicable conclusion. However, West Sixth claims Magic Hat stopped responding to correspondence and just recently slapped the Lexington brewery with a lawsuit.
