Schlafly family in dispute beer trademark dispute

(Continued)

Tom Schlafly declined to discuss the legal issues raised in the trademark dispute. He said the flap has not spilled over into a full-blown family feud and that he remains friendly with his aunt and cousins, whom he typically sees once or twice a year at holiday gatherings or weddings.

He also pointed out that the Eagle Forum and the brewery both oppose proposed changes to Missouri’s liquor-franchise laws sought by distillers. That, he said, is evidence that the two sides can work together on some alcohol issues.

Nor does Schlafly want to insert his business into a political squabble.

“She has fans and critics,” he said. “I want to sell to both of them. The last thing I want to do is antagonize her followers because I hope they drink Schlafly beer, too.”
