Default how do you guys come up with names for your homebrews?

In my excitement to get started, I've been trying to come up with a name for my "brewery" so I can make a cool logo (i love graphic design stuff) and then start naming my beers accordingly, but when it comes to naming things my artistic side runs and hides... so yea, I'd like to hear where you guys came up with your brewery and some of your HB names

A few years ago, one night around a firepit, we were talking about me being a Brewmistress, and decided that my next beer, a red ale, would be "Spank Me Red Ale".

Otherwise, I have such creative names as "Yooper's House Pale Ale" and "Fizzy Yellow Beer". I can only fit really short names on the kegerator menu anyway. Todays offering: "AAA", "IPA" and "WW" are on the board.

I have not really named anything. I think about it, but I am not there yet.

I suck at it. Seriously. The most creative beer name I've come up with is Grateful Pale Ale.

But it's probably because I try too hard. I try to come up with clever and meaningful names. You should see me when I try to name a new server-- it can take hours or days!

At this point, I think I'm just going to come up with random seemingly clever names like Rock Slide Bitter, Leafy Green IPA, or Twilight Porter. I just came up with those looking out my back window right now-- no meaning at all, but they sound cool, right?

As for my brewery name, a friend actually named it for me and made a logo to go with it, so that didn't take any creativity on my part at all.

Mosh(gf's idea, kinda fitting cuz me and mosh pits get along very well)
Spare Change(something I found online)
Train Bridge(reminiscent of where my friends and I would go and hang in our spare time in middle and high school)

Yntema (my last name, before my ancestors changed it)
Roseland(my town)

I named my latest "Hair o' the Dog Pale Ale" because I found one in the boil. If it comes out good, I guess I'll have to throw a dog hair in each batch to replicate it properly.

I normally draw inspiration from brew day or from the recipe or from sometime when I am sampling the beer.

E.g., my latest IPA is called Sunrise IPA because I brewed it while the sun was coming up.

I just recently decided that my "brewery" if you can call it that, is "gypsy brewing" cause my old roommates used to call me a gypsy cause i always ended up accumulating random junk that i thought was of some value. ( most of which i actually ended up using in some manner that was valuable to me, so screw you roomies)

As per brew names, I always try to come up with good puns, but sofar SWMBO just gives me the "that's stupid" look....

Did come up with "Dog lick porter" cause the dog was licking up some of the boil over.... think i'll stick with that one.
