New York brewery Lineup is facing Beyoncé’s army of lawyers, after putting a special beer on the market named Biëryoncé.

“Queen Bey” is not amused, and has sent a cease and desist letter, demanding the local brewery to stop using the confusingly similar name.

Lineup has tributed its specially brewed beers for pop icons before. Earlier you could buy beers that were an homage to Carly Simon (“I Bet You Think This Beer Is About You”), The Notorius B.I.G. (“Notorious”) and Freddie Mercury (“Under Pressure”).

The brewery stated that Bïeryoncé will still be available while current supplies last.
