I try to make all my beers funny, or at least gross. My "Golden Showers" ale was a big hit.

SWMBO called my last Hi-test Lager "some pretty evil yellow piss" after about three pints, so that stuck.

Cheyco, you better post your Hungry Heffer in the labels section if you didn't already. That really is a classic.

our first beer "dirty floor wheat" was named because while we were cracking the grains for steeping, the bag fell off the counter and the wheat malt went all over the floor. so we did what any good brewer would do. we swept it up, finished cracking it and made beer. it actually didnt taste that bad for our first go. our second beer "a yet unnamed christmas ale" was because we couldn't agree on a name. simple enough.

So far I've come up with:

4x4 American Pale Ale (4 types of hops and 4 types of malts),

Baxkat Wheat (baxkat is my fiance's handle and I brewed it for her),

No Canoe Brew True American Pilsner (for the beer I'm making for my gramps - named after the classic american beer and canoe joke), and

Holy MatrimoniAle (the Belgian Strong Ale I brewed this weekend that is to be bottled with corks in champagne bottles for my wedding in October).

I've also got label ideas for the first three that are pretty good. They've still got work to be done, so they won't be revealed just yet.

Sorry buddy, come up with your own original name. I'm working on having this one trademarked... I just forgot the little circle R.

#34 Pale Ale II®

Easy now EP, don't forget our beef is better than yours. It's a play on words you see as it's a heffewiesen. I was going to use heifer, but then I thought about how fun it is to coin words for naming purposes.

Sas: I'll post it when I get home, I thought you'd like it.

Cheyco, what's up with the Kritter? What kind of beer is it and why did you name it that? Was it the star of a string of bad eighties horror movies?
