Thanks to a trademark complaint, Buckeye Brewing Co. in Cleveland will change the name of its Nighty Night winter beer. It will be called Night Night when it's released again in 22-ounce bottles in early December, co-owner and brewer Garin Wright says. (The label here is from last year's brew.)
Buckeye -- which also operates the Buckeye Beer Engine in Lakewood -- came out with the limited-edition, Belgian-style dark strong ale last year. It clocked in at 12 percent alcohol per volume and lived up to Wright's claim that you want to go "nighty night" after drinking one.
"It sold very well," Wright says. He also doesn't want beer drinkers thinking that Night Night is Buckeye's Christmas offering. That's Christmas Girl. "It was really intended to be our winter warmer," he said.
