Starting today, the 10,000-square-foot bier hall Von Trapp's has a new name: Rhein Haus. Per a statement that's still hot off the press:
Though the owners vetted the original name and got the federal trademark before opening in early 2013, over the past few months concern has arisen with one member of the Trapp family about confusion between the Seattle Von Trapp's and the Trapp Family Lodge in Vermont.
The name Rhein Haus salutes "the longest river running through Germany." Only the name and signage is changing, with food and beer offerings staying the same.
