Default Did anyone else agonize over a brewery name?

My god, this is killing me. I've changed it 20 times already. I just can't come up with anything that I really like. I've gone from a golf inspired name to a Phish inspired name to about 10 other things.

I've had all of these:

Albatross Brewing Co.
Divided Sky Brewing Co.
Lumpy Head Brewing Co.
Man Cave Brewing Co. ( Way before the show came out!)
Cavern Brewing Co.


Did anyone else go through this problem? Now I'm thinking about naming it after my two sons. Their names are Michael and Angelo, so it would be Michaelangelo Brewing Co..

What do you guys think of that? Be honest please. I just have no idea what I would use as a logo. I don't think I'm down with David's naked ass on my beer label

yeah, i haven't come up with anything really striking yet either. i like the idea of michaelangelo. being honest though, i think it would sound better backwards: Brewery Michaelangelo. or in traditional Belgian style: Brouwerij MichaelAngelo.

Interesting Suggestion. I kind of like that idea. Thanks!

Michaelangelo's father's name (you) was Lodovico. It's a little more subtle, but still has the reference, if you don't mind explaining it.

Or mavybe a slichtly masculine twist on his name and reference to the "crazy life (vida loca)" for all you Ricky Martin fans. Loco Vida maybe rather tahn Lodovico.

Did you just put "masculine" and "Ricky Martin" in the same sentence?

I didn't really try to THINK of one. it just came one day. I started storing all my equipment and fermenting in my Furnace Room in the basement. I've since taken over the garage, basement and upstairs with a brewing "presence" (), but that's where I started no matter how far I go with this hobby. I like it in the sense that it will always remind me how I started.

I think it's a really cool name by the way. Do you have a logo?

I didn't see your logo there a second ago when I looked. Very cool.
