Post a pic of the label, and maybe we can make suggestions based on that.

Got any hobbies, interests, amusing brewing stories that could make for a name?

Geography? Any cool features in the area that represent where you're from?

Brew in the garage? Perhaps something based on the make/model of your vehicle?

Have an amusing last name? Embarassing uncle who always starts a fight at family gatherings? Name it after him?

A previous place you lived that you liked?

Any industry or occupation that your family has been involved in?

Name of a dog.

Name of a horse?

An emotion or trait (ie "Cursing Keith's Backyard Brewpub)

I couldn't come up with anything for the life of me. I thought of trying something based off a pet's name, usernames, songs or bands but nothing seemed to work.

Finally, my girlfriend's dad calls my cat Smoke Man (name is Smokey) and that though of that kind of stuck in my head so I decided to go with Smoke Man Brewing.

Nothing special, but it really doesn't need to be...
Primary: Double IPA 9/12/09
Carboy #2: English Cider - 5/9/09
Bottle Conditioning:
Drinking: Extra Special Bitter - 5/25/09 - Bottled 8/9/09
Apfelwein - 3/22/09 - Bottled: 5/3/09
Smoke Man's Double Chocolate Stout - 2/8/09 - Bottled: 3/22/09
Autumn Valley Amber Ale - 1/4/09 - Bottled: 1/31/09
