Funny thing, Phyllis Schlafly was actually the first thing I thought of when I first encountered the beer brand - I remember thinking "What kind of brand suicide is this to name a good beer after a ridiculous old bat like that?"

If you think about it, that's a pretty ballsy thing she's doing - trying to deny her family members the opportunity to trade under their own name, a name she received in marriage. Has anyone been able to explain her position in a way that doesn't make her sound like an aggravating old wet blanket?

You may not know the name but you know her work.

This is the first I've ever heard of Phyllis. And frankly, she sounds like a twit.

Just trademark "Schlafly Beer" and not the last name only. Like "Ford Motor Company" or "Miller Brewing Co"

what is this, an episode of "Sam & Cat?" the one where they got a cease and desist order from using their own names in the name of their business b/c of an old show called "Salmon Cat." seriously, this reminds me of that episode. (PS, i don't look at TV; my kids watch that show, lol)

Tom Schlafly and Schlafly Beer have been restoring a name that Phyllis and her son have been destroying for decades.
