Any thoughts?

That many animals?! How about bat**** crazy brewing?!

Three Black Feathers Brewery.

When SWMBO and I were talking about getting married her taking my surname became a point of contention. It was something very important to me. Any how, she ended up making her maiden name her second middle name and took my surname.
So she was talking to her father one day and he said he had found the coat of arms for their surname and it was something with three black feathers on it. I thought that it would be a cool brewery name, I couldn't think of anything else for a year, and I know it would of been something special to her. It's just a home brewery name but it meant alot to her.

How about 'Backup Ark Brewery'... since you're house was obviously the backup for the overflow of animals that didn't get on the original ark?

(also, I totally read 'poison dart frogs' as 'poison dog farts' the first time around, and was confused...)

Inyermouth Brewing Company...

Buddy of mine came up with it and it has stuck since...especially since our slogan with a strong Irish accent is the first line of my signature:

sharpstick:
why sharpstick?
that's become my playa name(burningman festival) and i use it on most forums now.
and sometimes i use "crooked label winery/brewery". i had so much trouble trying to get rectangular labels on straight that i designed labels that were trapezoids, printed the text at odd angles and just slapped em on any old way.

Mine is Feros Ferio Brewing. I'm part Scottish and "Feros Ferio" (meaning "I am fierce with the fierce") is the motto of my ancestors' clan.

Atomic Donkey Brewery. It was the name of the first band I was ever in. Just thought I'd carry on the name.

Mars Brewing Ltd.

I live on Mars Avenue, and I'm a HUGE space nerd. Like, given the choice of beer and space, I'd have to think, real, real, real hard on who would win. I like the Ltd. because it gives an English sort of feel to the name.

And that's the way it was!

Duncan McO'Connor's Pub and Brewery

Sound out the name - it'll make more sense.

Gypsy Brewing

for a while after college i lived in a basement with 5 other guys. yes, it was slightly crowded, but incredibly cheap. anyway, random stuff would accumulate that nobody wanted to take responsibility for. If said random item happend to be of any potential value to me, i would assume ownership... or "Gypsy" it as my roomates said. They started calling me "gypsy".

and i also "gypsy" some of my brewing stuff. 60 feet of soft copper from work to make a wort chiller, bottles from recycling bins at my favorite pub, etc. So i thought the name fit well.
