Two well-known Vermont brands are set to face off in a court battle.

Long Trail Brewing Wednesday said it's suing the Burton Corporation in federal court. The beer company said it has used the phrase "Take A Hike" for many years, and says it's synonymous with their brand and products. Now they're going after Burton, which they say also has that same phrase prominently featured on some of its apparel.

Burton officials did not respond to calls for comment Wednesday afternoon.
