AB InBev is in legal news again, this time being sued by the clothing company Patagonia for a possible trademark infringement issue.

According to reporting on CNN, AB InBev was granted a trademark to sell Patagonia beer in the United States in 2012; however, they didn't start using the name until 2018, when it unveiled a line of Patagonia beer.

According to the reports, from its selling practices down to its logo, Patagonia beer, appears to have a look similar to Patagonia clothing.

AB InBev was recently in the news for another legal case, this time with MillerCoors, for issues relating to TV spots for Bud Light.
