Work's never a problem, and clients love what I do for 'em, but the second I try to do something for my personal use - be it a logo for my freelance stuff, my own site, even brewery name/logo, I just sit there staring at a blank screen until I give up and resort to tasty, tasty, beer...

I feel you.... I have the same thing.... my wife actually came up with the idea.... I'm good at visualization, but terrible at concept.

Nytemare Brewing
Been using that name since the early 90s posting on bulletin boards. Always stuck with it. I'm kicking around "Beers for Fears" for my slogan and using mystical creatures and legends for names of brews.

mine is called RACER XPEDITIONS BREWERY. about 10 years ago i drove 500 miles to see a friend and the transmission went out (well fourth and fifth gears) about 50 miles away. i had to take a bus back home and asked my friend if he would mind selling the car and send me half of the money. he could keep the other half for the trouble. he did sell it for $1500 dollars and spent the entire sum on gear for a trip to the wonderland trail around mount rainier. when i found out i told him that seeing as i financed his gear i was basically his sponsor and he should at least wear a RACER XPEDITIONS hat. (my name for any video game is racer x) my friend has YET to take the trip.

A friend and I were playing in a beer pong league at a bar locally, and we started calling ourselves "Wrath of Pong". I brought that over into my homebrew to just call us "Wrath Brewing"

I'm actually brewing a domestic-ish beer soon that I will probably use the Wrath of Pong name for
