Valhalla's Gate Brewery is the only one that really makes sense to me. It gives the message that your beer is an entrance to heaven.

The heroes of the northlands went to valhalla to fight and die in their most glorious battles during the day only to be revived and feast with Odin at night. Their beer would be brewed in the breweries of Valhalla (though, in all honesty, wouldn't they be drinking mead?).

Perhaps you can find the name of the meaderies or the breweries of Valhalla somewhere. Norse mythology was pretty extensively detailed.

Let me know if you don't go with Valhalla's Gate, as I like the mythological aspect to it and would consider using it myself. Really though, I would encourage you to use that one of all the options on the table.

Well that is an endorsement of that name if I have ever seen one. It is obviously a very cool name and I think it could be commercially viable in the future.

Yeah I'm only half-joking about letting me know. I've been tossing around a few ideas for naming my brand but have yet to find anything that really sticks. Valhalla's Gate has some potential though.

It's looking good for Valhalla's Gate Brewery.

The visuals are stunning...I wish I was an artist.

The names for beers would be very easy to make up.

The mythology is legendary, and well known among many in the craft beer demographic.

It would be another example of an American taking something from Europe and making it their own.

Like I said...it's sounding pretty good right now. Any thoughts?
