I need a name for where my brew's are coming from.
I'm thinking:

A) Tommy Rocker Brewing (high school nickname)

B) Small Change (Tom Waits reference)

C) BrewHaHa

D) Middle Fork Brewing (where I grew up fishing)

Thanks for the input

Tom

Don't know anything about you personally, but I think the Middle Fork idea would work for you. You could play off the fishing theme and name your brews according to types of fish, equipment, lures, etc... You could probably whip up some pretty neat labels related to the whole sport of fishing.

My first three labels I did said " Bad Dog Brewing" but then I saw another HBT member with that name so I didn't want to encroach on his name so I need something more personal and original I guess. The whole "bad dog" thing was for my shorthair pointer. He's really a good dog but I give him crap about being a bad dog.

Small Change. Wasn't he the guy that got rained on with his own 38?
I love that record, but I voted for Middle Fork.

yeah I would too. That's the way I am with Buffett. I've been thinking of naming mine in the Buffett vein someway like "Changes in Latitudes Brewery" or something like that.

Gotta be the tribute to Tom Waits.

I'm thinking of changing my brewery name, too. It started as Broken Leg Cellars (winemaking) but then when I switched (mostly) to beer it's Broken Leg Brewery. My leg is almost healed, finally. Only took a year!

Bernie- LOVE the "changes in latitudes" name.
