Goose Island Beer Co., which is controlled by Anheuser-Busch InBev, makes a wheat beer called 312 Urban Wheat Ale, an homage to the Chicago area code where Goose Island is based. Now, Anheuser-Busch InBev has applied for federal trademarks for 14 area codes throughout the United States, including "216" in Cleveland. The request was made May 20 to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The news was apparently first reported by the subscription-based Craft Business Daily and was picked up this week by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch newspaper. The move gives rise to speculation that the brewer is perhaps interested in making city-specific beers. That wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility. In 2006, Anheuser-Busch produced an Ohio-specific beer at its Columbus brewery: Burnin' Helles. The company confirmed in an email that it had applied for the trademarks but provided no other details. The Post-Dispatch reported that in addition to Cleveland, the other area codes are: 314 (St. Louis), 412 (Pittsburgh), 305 (Miami), 619 (San Diego), 202 (Washington, D.C.), 602 (Phoenix), 704 (Charlotte, N.C.), 702 (Las Vegas), 214 (Dallas), 415 (San Francisco), 303 (Denver), 615 (Nashville, Tenn.) and 713 (Houston).
