I chose Uncle Martin's Brewery. My favorite band is Tool and I wanted something that was a subtle tool reference. They have a song where they are out at area 51 looking for aliens, and after they see a ufo, he says "I hope Uncle Martin here doesnt notice that I've (peed) my pants!" I thought the lyric was funny, and went with it.

Sadly i have no name for my brewery yet. DH and I have tossed a number of names back and forth yet nothing sticks. The closest to a decent name that we have is "Psycho Kitten Brewery" and that just sounds so... not right.
I have been thinking of going with "Shiva's Ale Works" or something similar.

I went for MacKnockel's Brewery, which is a spin off from my last name and a nickname formed a long time ago for my family, the McConnell's. Thought it was a good time to bring it back.

Raccoon Creek Brewery, no brainer as I live on Raccoon Creek Road.

Still thinking about a slogan for all my labels..

"Steal ya Some"..

"Brew Bandits" ....etc, etc....

Devil's Valley Brewing, cause my initials are DV.

I was originally going to use it for photography, but I haven't been doing much shooting lately, so I stole the name for my brews instead. =)

The Fat Man Brewery, started off as a joke between me and my first brewing partner, from there it morphed into www.thefatmanbrewery.com where I have logo's and a history tab to describe the Atom bomb theme from WWII and the "Fat Man" atomic bomb.

I have been involved in Telecommunications of some sort (microwave, TTY, TCP/IP, VIOP, TDM etc.) since the 70's.

I am a Telecom guru and spend a lot of time dealing with protocols, messaging, signaling and other bits of esoteric knowledge. When I chose a name, after many many years of brewing, it simply had to reflect what I do to make it possible.

Touch Tone Brewery just rolls off the tongue for some reason.

Now if I could just get some clever graphics guy to make me a logo I would be set.

I wonder if one is reading these posts...

Cheers,

knewshound

Illinois River Valley Brewing Co. (IRV)

I live in the heart of the Illinois River Valley-- there have been about 23 breweries and distillaries to grace our area since the 1800's. The water I use comes from the river, and its good for brewing. So I pay homage to the river in my brewery name.
