I have an artist friend creating a label image. I had a name but to my chagrin, it has already been taken. Being of Italian descent, first generation Americano, I find no offense in some names associated with us...Italians. What's your take?

"Hair of the Wop"

Can be used as my homebrewery name or simply a style.
Original name, "Strongarm Brewing".

I will unveil final logo in a seperate and appropriate HBT forum.

Cheers,
Hairy Italian

I like it.
You could also put it in Italian. Google translation "i capelli del wop"

Now I need to come up with something with "cracker" in it.

It's only offensive if the beer inside is crap!

Yes! I likey!

It is my experience that if you are going to use the term "Cracker", you will need to brew in your bathtub in a trailer or, "a van..down by the river!". Peckerwood rolls of just as clean as Cracker.

I've used all sorts of Irish slurs for names of my beers over the years.

The only crap I make goes in the toilet, not a bottle. That being said, I have brewed "Near crap".

"A man's discretion makes him slow to anger, And it is his glory to overlook a transgression..." especially when there's beer involved.
