His wife gave me his sign, which in 2004 I built a 10-12 seat bar in my home, I had to name it "The Mad Cop Bar" promptly displayed the sign as a memory to a good friend and co-worker. I consider the sign as a license to use the name. I have been doing extracts, but I am about to start all grain, and working up recipes I can call my own with names like , hot pursuit, felonious assault, disorderly conduct, aggravated assault, 11 months & 29 days, and the ultimate for a barley wine, "Homicide". I might even use some infamous name like Capone, Jesse James, Son of Sam, the night stalker, or Andy& Barney's summer ale, etc,etc. it's a never ending list of great names for beers.

Cheers!
Don't forget 10-10 for high ABV, code 4, 10-7.

I don't think Happy Devil Brewing is taken yet. My buddy who wants to brew with me thought of it. His last name is Deville, mine is Happ.

If I ever make labels or make something for the front of the keezer, I figured on Willapa brewing.
I live on the South Fork of the Willapa river, I'm in the Willapa hills, I grew up on Willapa bay and it forms a large portion of our county.

Not sure if an oyster, sturgeon, salmon, boat, waterfowl or logging inspired image would go with it.

We decided on Beauxmont's Brewery though we're still working on a logo.

Beauxmont was the nickname my wife and I used for my son while he was in utero.

I also barrel-aged whisky from New Year's Eve until the week he was born in May and called it Beauxmont's Batch. Surprisingly good.

I have named my brewery the Brew Pedaler Aleworks. I have never stayed in one location long enough to call home so the brewery name has to be mobile until I settle down. My life has always involved bicycles, hence the pedaler part. Once friends started asking for beers, I made it a point of always delivering them on my bike.

I am working on a logo. I also try to name my beers with a cycling theme, for instance Bunny Hop IPA and Summer Ride Weisen.

My buddy and I have Boston terriers. They're nicknamed American gentleman. We're American and family men.

I have been in the military (Army) just over 10 years and I am a faithful artillerymen! But I have only been with an Artillery battalion about 3 years of my career since the reorganization of the Army we 13F (Fister) are attached to infantry or Cavalry units. When I finally started brewing it just stuck with me the history of Artillery with the Red stripe greaves a everything
So I came up with Red Leg Brewing Co. In association with Veteran brewing group: a few of us who have invested in each other helping each other build our rigs and piece together our equipment.

I had heard about brewing need at home and was very interested. I talked to my wife about it. She wasn't on board. Weeks of talking and begging, and "breaking her arm" over it became Broken Arm Brewery

Channel 66 started back when I was in college I didn't have much money and the only apartment I could afford was in a crappy neighborhood, constantly shady things going on out the window. We were on the corner on the 3rd floor and had a ton of Windows so we could sit in our living room and look down all 4 directions. We couldn't afford cable so watching the neighborhood goings ons became a hobby. We called it channel 66 (66 being our house number). One day we saw a poodle jump out of a 4th story window hit the ground and proceed to chase after a cat. All of my neck labels feature said poodle jumping out of, off of, or into something.
