Lawyers for Ozzy Osbourne have stopped a brewer from making an unauthorized brand of “Ozzy” beer. According to Classic Rock, Baltimore-based The Brewer’s Art named one of its many house brews after Ozzy, with the cans featuring images of his knuckle tattoos as well as bats — including a headless one.
Ozzy’s legal team issued a cease-and-desist order, after which brewery head Tom Creegan announced that the “Ozzy” beer would be pulled.
- During its short time on the shelves, the “Ozzy” beer was acclaimed by brew enthusiasts, with the drink getting a 90 out of 100 rating on the Beer Advocate website.
- Ozzy and Black Sabbath will hit the road this Monday (March 31st) for a North American tour that begins in Brooklyn, New York and spends most of its time in Canada, before wrapping up in Los Angeles on April 26th.
