There are more than a few Guns N’ Roses fans out there who like to drink beer, but that doesn’t mean the band is cool with a brewery playing off its name.

Axl, Slash and Duff have settled a lawsuit that accused Oskar Blues of trademark infringement. The Colorado brewery had been selling a brand called Guns ‘N Rosé and there was merchandise that went along with it.

According to a court filing by Guns N’ Roses’ lawyers, both sides agreed in principal to settle and are working on a written settlement that would lead to the dismissal of the lawsuit.

In the original paperwork, the band argued Oskar Blues “should not be entitled to continue to sell infringing products and intentionally trade on GNR’s goodwill, prestige, and fame without GNR’s approval, license or consent.”

Guns ‘N Rosé is not currently listed among the products on the brewery’s website. It had been described as combining "sticky prickly pear and floral hibiscus with a subtle hop profile."

Meanwhile, Guns N’ Roses’ Not in This Lifetime Tour will return to the U.S. this fall. The band will return to the stage September 25 in Charlotte, and dates are scheduled through November 2 in Las Vegas. Get the full schedule here.
