NEW ORLEANS (AP) - It's a Bourbon Street battle of jumbo beers, just before Mardi Gras' climactic weekend: Huge Ass Beers vs. Giant Ass Beer.

The New Orleans Advocate reports that the Huge Ass Beers creator is suing another string of bars and clubs on the famous New Orleans street for marketing a rival draft beer pour as Giant Ass Beer.

The lawsuit filed in New Orleans federal court alleges trademark infringement and seeks a restraining order barring the sale of Giant Ass Beer, as well as damages.

An attorney for the owner of the three businesses that sell Huge Ass Beers' plus-sized pours says his client has no comment.

Representatives of the operators of the businesses that sell Giant Ass Beer didn't immediately respond to the newspaper's request for comment.
