Default Brewery name with the word "Drunken" in it

Wanted to see what people would think of a brewery name with the word "Drunk" or "Drunken" in it. I really don't see alot of it and I would think that people would look at the name in a negative light. What do you think?

I think the lawyer of the person opening that brewery would be less than thrilled about the name

Commercial brewery? No, that seems like a bad idea. Home brewery? Drunken Tortoise seems whimsical

It's fine, even if it's a commercial venture.

You might be interested to know that there might be laws that regulate a bunch of this stuff... If you have ever talked to a brewer about his trials and tribulations with the ATF over their labels;;;; you would be amazed...

50 years ago no problem but these days with everyone being so sensitive I think it is not the best way to go...

So if you opening a place,,, do you need assitant brewer or chef bottle washer??? HA!

If having "Drunk" in a brewery's name is such a problem, why are there a multitude of commercial craft beers with the word "Drunk" in the title?

I seen "Bitch" wine, "Arrogant Bastard Ale", amongst others which have names worse than any drunken animal name. When you pick a name driven to inspire a reaction you will always have those who hate it. The rest of us just laugh or shrug it off.

I personally like the name.

Just like brewing a beer, do it the way you want.
