"Battle has rejected a beer label for the King of Hearts which had a playing card image on it, because the heart implied that the beer would have a health benefit."

So if they called it King of Clubs, does that imply you're going to get hit with a club, or it's going to give you a Club Leg?

Yeah, I had no idea that beer labels even had to be approved by the government, much less that there is only one guy who does it.

I would have never guessed there are over 29,500 different names/brands/styles of beer. I need to get to work trying them all.

Some microbrewer should troll the hell out of him with a label that is nothing but blatant violations.

This is actually pretty farking interesting.

He rejected a beer that was marketed as an "india Dark Ale", a takeoff on the IPA, because it implied the beer was made in India (even though the label had a line with the words "Product of Denmark").

I have to admit I don't see the logic here, given that the "I" in IPA stands for "India", and the whole point of an IPA is that it WASN'T brewed on the Subcontinent.

I thought the article was going to be about how he rejects labels due to claims of alcohol percent content and such. Nope. Just a bureaucrat and his petty BS.

I'm sure there's a few thousand designs out there in production that have never seen his desk, particulary one off and special runs. I've seen a number of them that would toe the line if bot outright cross it.

"Battle Martin is really on it, and very, very thorough," said Dan Shelton, who runs a beer importing business called Shelton Brothers, stressing that he liked Battle personally. But the system that Battle represents is a constant thorn in their side. "It gets a little perverted sometimes..."

Please do go on about how his dictate.

Example: do a Google search for Hailstorm brewing's "Dominatrix DIPA." Yeah...I'm pretty sure that label never got a stamp of approval from this guy.

It's a good beer, though.

Zealous beaurocrat? Check.
Insists on being addressed 'Battle'? Check.

I concur.  Props subby.

that dude is fine, he's just concerned with words and intent of language.

the biggest PIA when it comes to label approval is the state level crap. every state has their own criteria, and with some states, that criteria breaks down to the county level. Maryland is a good example of that.
