'Brewers set to begin beer trademark battle'

Associate Professor Michael Handler speaks to ABC Radio National, ABC Local Radio, ABC News 24 and 7pm.

A Melbourne brewery seeking to revive historic beers is taking on beverage giant Carlton and United Breweries (CUB) over the trademark of more than 50 beer labels. A two-day hearing into the matter begins in Melbourne on Tuesday.

Thunder Road Brewing Company is hoping to remake many of Australia's historic and forgotten beers.

It says CUB, which is part of South African-owned Foster's, no longer uses the historic labels and should not be able to retain the trademarks.
