Hey guys, I need help coming up with a name for a brew, only I'm being a bit particular... I give all my (successful - i.e. have brewed a few times) beers actual names of, well, beer-related people, and in alphabetical order. So, now I need a name of someone beer-related beginning with C. Haven't had many suggestions from housemates/mates so I thought I'd ask the experts.

Sorry for the ramble! Just fill in the blanks:

My next brew is called C_____!

Charlie Papazian?

I don't know exaclty what you are looking for, but if you aren't familiar, he wrote "The Complete Joy of Homebrewing" and founded the American Homebrewer's Association. I would say he is a pretty significant figure in homebrewing.

Yeah I thought of that just after I hit post... as for what I'm after, well my first one is ∆gir after the Norse god of (the sea and) beer, and the sixth is to be Franklin (after FDR for ending prohibition) I was thinking about Carter, for Jimmy for legalising brewing, but I didn't really want two presidents as I'm not even American!

Charlie sounds better than any other suggestion I've heard, I'd quite like something historical though.

Capone, Al Capone. Famous for Speak Easy's (and other things) during Prohibition. That's the best I could come up with.

Brew an overhopped American IPA. Call it Calagione, after Sam, the founder and brewmaster at Dogfish Head.

Cheers guys, it's gonna be Capone, that's exactly the sorta thing I was shooting for! It's a British Pale by the way, with Fuggles and Goldings, that came out tasting quite like Young's last time I made it, and good enough to earn a name (I'm rubbish at naming things, as you might guess, so I don't like to waste good names on bad brews!)
Thanks again for all you suggestions, I may be back again soon for more help!

Not really beer related, but let's see...York, UK...if my memory of history serves me here a little Itallian guy named Caesar took a vacation to your isle a while back...

How about "Caesar's Conquest" or "Caesar's Campaign" has a ring to it.

Yeah, there were some Italians here a little while back. In fact, a blokey who called himself Constantine was here fighting some barbarians (i.e. locals) when, apparently, he had a dream in which he was told that if his army painted crucifixes on his shields, they would win the battle. They did, and they did (so we're told) and he promptly converted to Christianity (and in doing so, converted the entire empire). Or so we're told. Locally. I'm sure there are thirty thousand claimants to his conversion though! And Wikipedia, for what it's worth, doesn't mention this battle at York as being his turning point in the article about him.
Anyway, the local brewery already has a brew called Constantine, and damn nice it is too!
Thanks for the suggestion, but I feel Capone is more booze-related (the Romans preferred wine and thought of beer as a drink for the prols.... hmmm wait, that's still true here!)
