The R&B superstar slapped a Brooklyn, N.Y. -based brewery with a cease and desist letter over a handcrafted beer inspired by Queen Bey, herself.

The remaining beers, which feature a design inspired by her self-titled 2013 album, are available for in NY until supplies sell out.

Lineup Brewing began selling a pilsner called "Bïeryoncé" last October and returned it to shelves by popular demand this fall.

Perhaps, Beyonce is not a fan of beer? According to the website, Martinez chose to brew the Bieryonce beer after missing one of the Formation singer's concerts despite having tickets.

The brains behind the beer, Katarina Martinez, explained her inspiration for Bïeryoncé.

"I was terribly sad about it, so I made a decision to name [the beer] in her honour", she said ahead of the beer's release. "I'm also a Hispanic, woman-owned and operated business, so I really look up to her and the strength and empowerment she promotes with women".

But Martinez wasn't safe in assuming Beyonce would be flattered.

"We're disappointed she didn't take it as a compliment, but oh well", she continued. When she got the cease and desist letter she was bummed. "It was fun while it lasted!"
