Default What about this Brewery Name?

I'm seeing a lot of threads on brewery names. I move relatively frequently, so I can't name it after my area (then move away).

I'm in the Navy, and have always liked the old ships. My brewstand is made out of wood and brass. I like to stay classy.

What about "Battleship Brewery"....? Battleships are frickin' sweet, and the sillhouette would look awesome on a T-Shirt.

There's lots of beer names that could stem from nautical terms:

Portside Porter
Starboard IPA
Reveille Red

Whatch'yall think? Cheesy, or cool?

I like the theme, but there are some cooler nautical terms and Navy jargon that might not sound as cliche.

Aegis, Nimitz, etc
Ironsides (might be trademarked)
Rough Chop
Waterspout
Salt Spray
Main Sail
Shore Leave
R&R

Eh...I'm an AF puke, what do I know about bo-ats?

Yeah...I just threw those out there. I might have to jack some of those names, though!

Dreadnought is a battleship and sounds way cooler.

BTW, Yuri-

As much as I like the Navy, the AF treats you better.....I might come to the dark side in a few years. But that's neither here nor there...

I think your idea is a great one but it's really up to you.

You gotta get some good drink names like "Salty Scurvy Seaman"

HA! LOL....

There's a lot of possible material for names, as well as old-timey pictures for labels, etc. I definitely like the "Dreadnought" name, especially after reading up on it. Gotta love Wikipedia!
