    This sounds delicious. I'm hoping that it will be released in bottles as well. No word on date or availability, but it should be soon!​

    At this point, all we know is that it falls under the categories of whimsical and Snozzwanger.


    So... sounds like beer to me.

    Sounds good, definitely worth a look once it is out for consumption.

    Just an FYI this is probably not going to be bottled. As of now all the bottle is headhunter and bumbleberry. This was the first year the bottled their xmas beer so they are expanding, but most of their releases are tap only

    No copyright/trademark issues?

    I would assume Fat Heads did their due diligence here.

    If there is any potential issue, it probably wouldn't be raised until the beer is actually released and whatever company or individual (likely Roald Dahl's estate) sees or gets word of the product in the marketplace...none of the federal/state bureaus/divisions have a stake in copyright/trademark issues so none of the "checkpoints" a beer goes through to get to market would raise those sorts of issues.
