    A craft beer promotion using an image of Councilman Marion Barry is coming to an abrupt end.

    Lawyers for Barry said the Flying Dog Brewery did not have permission to use Barry's photograph in a commercial way.

    Flying Dog is promoting its new Underdog beer to be sold beginning Saturday at Jack Rose in D.C.'s Adams Morgan neighborhood.

    The flier for the event jokingly referred to Barry's 1990 drug arrest when he was mayor.
