Default Is my brewery name lame???

Be honest. When I built the bar in my basement a few years ago, my friends started calling it the Man Cave. I thought it was a cool name because I didn't realize what a common expression that is.

Now I see that it is a really common term. Is Man Cave Brewing a lame name?

Should I come up with something more unique???

If it seems lame to you, then try a simple reversal of the words. Man = Lady. Cave = hole. So, I suggest lady hol...... nah, that won't work, go with whatever feels right, but Man Cave? Yeah, it's a bit obvious, sorry

I'm going to have to agree with the Gnome and to add insult to injury you sig is incorrect. I'm pretty sure Dean Martin is the one who coined that phrase.

I don't think it's lame, but I don't like the way it more or less exactly fails to roll off the tongue. If in doing what Laughing Gnome suggests you find that simply reversing the order of the words involved to produce "Cave Man Brewing" sounds better to your ear, then I would try that.

By the way, I too am performing a linguistic experiment of dubious nature, wherein I attempt to use far more words than are truly necessary or desirable in order to attempt the communication of the desired point - as you may or may not have already noticed.

I'm not one to judge. Mine is named after my wife's obsession with Fluffy White lapdogs.

Man Cave is pretty generic though... isn't there a show on DIY TV called "Man Cave"?

Beer Cave Brewing sounds nice and has a bit of alliteration to it. Just try not to tie in something with "Spelunking" in a slogan, you may get strange looks.

Go with something off the wall and unique that you either have a good story behind, or can make one up.

I agree it's a lame name. Try to think of something more distinctive that reflects your personality.
