You can call it Cart Horse Brewing. Always putting the cart before the horse!

You see, it's not that I am not creative with these types of things but I want a name that I can stick with for a lifetime.

I do not have any children yet but I suppose branding your beer with a name would be comparable to naming your first born child?

My concerns heighten as I am constantly daydreaming about owning and operating a microbrewery one day several years from now. I want a name that I can proudly display from my homebrewing days on..

This question is open to everyone but I am really interested in those micro-brewers who have taken their hobby to the full-time career level.

Did you rename your brew for success when you started to sell your brew or did you stick with your original homebrew name and had success.

For the homebrewers: Is this a shared concern or am I the only novice that shares this dilemma?
I have some pipedreams about running a brewpub someday.

I figure someday the name will come to you and you'll know that it couldn't be anything else. The name might have some personal value or represent a story or is completely random or in the "[adjective] [noun]" formula. How do you pick your forum usernames?

At least for myself, as a beer drinker of maybe two years, I used to order by name to start so the interesting ones caught my attention first.

Arrheinous Brewing would be a reference to a scientist Arrhenius and changing around that last bit. Now that's Arr-heinous, I'm thinking pirate scientists and from there maybe we get the "Black Hole Stout". I think going from an initial concept to final concept works better when it's indirect (A to C thinking, rather than A to B to C).

If you want a meaningful name with a good story, you're going about finding it the wrong way. Those aren't often created by sitting down and thinking really hard for a few days and then writing something down. If you don't already *know* what the name should be, just wait a while. At some point you'll realize what you should call it.

You can't manufacture Inspirado.

Interesting and thoughtful name.

I know that a name will come to me someday and that day could be tomorrow, next week, month, year, or even 5 years.

The debate that I am having with my self is whether to give it a name just for the sake of having a name to tell others when they ask and possibly alter or completely change the name later or wait until I come up with a highly marketable name in case I decide to sell my brew one day.

Sorry, just the marketing and sales side of me coming out.

I simply named mine after the street SWMBO and I live on. It's my first house since I moved to America from Scotland 8 months ago and I felt that it would be a nice reminder years and years down the line of where we both started out.

Plus it'll be nice to reminisce about this little house when we both live in our million dollar house! (Gotta have dreams and something to aim for, right?)

I think you are starting on a good foot. It is like when you buy your first house. You don't know what you want but when you see it, you will know it and own it.

Keep your ears and mind open for now and when it hits you, the name will stick and you will have your name.
