I think I'm gonna go with Blue Shed Brew Co.

After spilling 5 gallons of fermented beer during a bottling mishap, I've been thrown out of the house for all things brewing...

Off to my shed...

I was in a near fatal dirtbike accident 2 years ago. Amongst my many injuries was a compound fractured pinky. It has since healed but is stuck in the bent position and when the surgeon set it, he set it off axis; so it turns inward a bit.

When I throw up the horns to rock out or just show approval, they are a bit crooked. Thus...............

I just realized I have never posted in here....

I spent 3 of my formative years living in the Netherlands (3-6yrs old). I have very fond memories of this time and while there I really liked Kabouters or Gnomes. A famous Dutch Painter named Rein Poortvliet made a book with detailed drawings and stories/documentaries about the life of gnomes. It is a great coffe table book and I still have it and read it occasionally.

Anyway, I am short and generally like the way of life and stories of the gnomes so I have a few gnome things. I just like them, plus they are funny.

I also live in an old farmhouse that I am renovating in the country.

Thus, Brouwerij Boerderij Kabouter was born... The Farmhouse Gnome Brewery.

My wife has a thing for little white fluffy lap dogs. We've had three over the last dozen years.

I only brew ales, at least for the last 6 years. *shrug* Lagers don't do it for me I guess.

Anyway, White Dog Aleworks kinda fits.

I'm thinking about Lytle Custom Brews. Me and my family are always trying something new and different in commercial beers, so I try to mimic that with my brews.
<EDIT> Bench Top Brewery it is.

I call my little setup "Vermont St. Brewery" for the time being. Mainly because I live on Vermont ave., but Vermont Avenue Brewery doesn't roll as easily off your tongue... sooo therefore the change to Vermont st. was necessary. Whats really funny is that when I moved in, we thought that we would have a nice bar in the basement and I toyed with the idea of making a sign for the side door that said Vermont st. Pub. I hadn't started brewing beer yet, (it would be alomst 1 year before I even thought of doing it actually), and somehow the name kinda stuck. If I ever finish the bar in the basement the sign above the door will read "Vermont St. Pub and Brewery".

Ahhh... to dream a dream.

I call mine BFF Brewery - Beer Fer ****sakes

Mainly because my friends are always asking what kind of beer it is. My response is, "It's Beer Fer ****sakes, shut your face and drink it."
