Stella's on Cambie - what happened?

Drove by the other day and saw the windows covered and a new sign going up - it's now Bier Craft...or something like that. Anyone heard anything?

  1. A cafe owner in Winnipeg trademarked the name "Stella's" and attempted to sue Stella's for infringement (or something like that.) Instead of fighting it, Stella's decided to rebrand. Not a fan of the name "BierCraft", personally.

      Well that makes sense.....much of the storefront looked the same....same colours, same writing....and "bier" in the name.

        Whew ! I live a few blocks away and didn't even notice [blush] !!!

        As long as they're same people, same foods, same biers .............

          Same everything - so no worries. (Except that I wish they updated their menu.)

      2. Damn. Won't be able to yell "Stella!!!" when I drive by anymore.

          But "BIER !!!!!" ain't bad ;-)

          Oooops, I just got the Seinfeld reference [grin]

            Seinfeld? Tenessee Williams is rolling over in his grave. And again...

              That is funny, I thought the exact same thing! :-) Like the photo (& comments) too.
