Ok If that is the question, technically the words should be used like this.

The Island Time Brewery is offering a brewing named IIPA.

So the Brewery still is a physical location makes the beer but the offering is what was brewed.

Any other use might be wrong, hope that answers the question.

I'd be curious to know as well if there's anything to the distinction.
+1 thats pretty much what I was trying to ask!

This is based solely on my judgement when hearing the two names, and is based on no fact whatsoever, nor do I know anything about the history of the names.
Thanks and I think I agree with your logic and that's what I have been leaning towards. Coal Room Brewing just has a better ring to me.

I'll add a third minor variation to the mix. I'm going with Newport Brews as the former is my suname and it works on several levels: city name pun, noun, and verb. First batch just went to bottle so that's about all I have at the moment!

Brewing is generally accepted to be short for Brewing Company.

Like Thirsty Dog Brewing is short for Thirsty Dog Brewing Company.

Brewery is meant to imply where the beer comes from. So on a label it might say Thirsty Dog Brewery, meaning Made by the Thirsty Dog Brewery (The place where Thirsty Dog Brewing Company makes their beer...

I like it. It sounds pleasant, rolls off the tongue, and also kind of reminds me a sports team name for some reason.

And how memorable it is, or any other factor which helps in "sellability". It's really all about marketing, be it commercially, or even just amongst your friends.
