|Thank you very much barry for explaining the Zoigl situation.|
Perhaps it is simplistic to expect this to be easily taken care of. Doing a bit of research, I looked in Steve Thomas' Good Beer Guide to Germany, written in 2006. He said that "Zoigl" was produced by about a dozen commercial breweries in Germany. A quick look at Ratebeer now shows many more German breweries using the name. The Wurth Brewery in Windischeschenbacher used to produce just two beers out of seven called Zoigl according to the GBGG. Now it seems all their beers are called Zoigl (including, most shamefully, a Zoigl Radler) and they have renamed their website wurth-zoigl.de. I guess it would be silly to expect them or others to stop using the Zoigl name without a huge fight.
