I ended up with "Hilgert Family Brewing"

I originally was going to use "Hilgert Brauerei" to tie into the german heritage, but I figured "Hilgert" already did that Additionally I found out from my mother that my father (now deceased) used to homebrew.

So "Hilgert Family Brewing" is a nod to anitquity/lineage and I think in combination with my logo, it engenders the handcrafted, home made with familial pride, classic type of brew that I aspire to create and share.

That's brilliant, I applaud you!

Ya'll,
My brewery is named:
'The Former Pantry Brewery'
because it is 'the former pantry'.
I store pots and pans in piles all over the house,
but I am designing a pot holder which will hang them
from the ceiling in the kitchen.

"THe Brewery"

My initials are TH. My friends call me TH. I have a vanity license plate that just has TH on it. Someone who saw it once asked me, "is that short for 'The Man' or something?" I mentioned that to my buddies and now they call me stuff like "The engineer" or "The brewer", etc. So I thought my brewery should be called THe Brewery.

Spruce Street Brewery... The street I grew up on and, subsequently, moved back to.

Boilermaker Brewing

I just purchased Boilermaker Brewing dot com a few weeks ago.

I'm from Kewanee, IL which is the home of the Kewanee Boilermakers and the Kewanee Boiler Mfg. So it only seemed fitting to find a name that involved Boiler and/or Boilermakers into the name.

Now just to find someone with some awesome graphic skills to draw up a label and logo.
