Your saying that your homebrew is the same name of a real
brewery? If you can provide me your username - we can change the
beers you created toward a new brewery for you. We recommend
changing the name of your homebrewery to due to confusion.

Sorry for the delay, haven't had a chance to work on it. I was
wondering though. If I'm a homebrewer and have listed all my beers as
so, why is there an issue with the name? Shouldn't it be by location
as well. Lots of businesses with different locations have the same
name that are not affiliated with each other. Just wondering.

It causes confusion among users and the reason why some beers
are placed in your brewery. Since the commercial breweries have the
trademark and the license to use that name, and you just
homebrewing - I just suggested you change your name to avoid the
issue for users assigning and checking into the brewery.
It's totally up to you, however if that brewery comes to us and
ask us to change your entry, we have to comply.

moved all your entries off the commercial brewery, and onto your
