Default Time to play Name. That. Brewery!!!

Hello all,

I recently debuted my home brew at my college graduation party to friends and family. In addition to the jokes on what I really spent 4 years learning, questions about the name for my brewing operation were brought up. I haven't really thought about a name yet, but it would be nice to have something for labels.

About me:

-Graduated with degree in Education
-I want to teach History
-Went to school in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (which I feel in love with), now living in the Chicago suburbs
-Huge hockey fan

I'd like the name have something to do with history (sets up a nice brew name theme I think), but I'm open to any suggestions.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Matt

I'd name it after one of my heros, Earnest Shackleton, of Endeavor fame. Google search. Greatest survival story in the history of mankind. Maybe I'd use Yelcho, the name of the loaned chilean tug that Earnest finally used to get back to save ALL of his men. Or Endeavor Brewing, the name of the ship that was iced in and sank to start the story. (see the Alfred Lansing book). I like this game.

How about Excelsior Brewing?

Named after Project Excelsior, that was the balloon flight that took Joseph Kittinger to the edge of space. From a height of 102,800 feet he jumped from that balloon and was in freefall for over 4 minutes, accelerating to a speed of 614mph before pulling the chutes.

Kittinger still holds the record for the highest balloon flight, the longest freefall, and the fastest speed attained by a human being through the atmosphere.

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Keweenaw was the brewery that got me away from BMC, so it holds a special place in my heart. Good beer, but it's not available in Illinois
