COTTLEVILLE, MO (KSDK/CNN) - A dispute is brewing between Starbucks and a small Missouri brewery because of a beer with a name similar to a popular Starbucks drink.
The coffee giant reportedly sent the business a cease-and-desist letter.
But the owner decided to get back in a frothy note.
"I'm a little tiny business in a little tiny town, making little batches of beer," said Jeff Britton, owner of Exit 6, a brewery.
Britton couldn't really believe when he received this letter from Starbucks, which was in response to chatter on a social media site about a beer called "frappiccino."
The letter says, in part: "as you probably know, Starbucks coffee is the owner of a number of trademarks, including the well-known frappuccino trademark."
It goes on to ask him to stop using any labels similar to that word.
