So i'm having a very hard time coming up with a name for my brewery. I moved to Canada from England 2 years ago so i've been trying to come up with something that captures England and Canada. Any ideas guys?

That's about the extent of similarities. Distance traveled, nicknames, famous historical events, etc.

Wild Peasant Brewery.

For mine, I just took my last name (which is one language) and translated it into German. It's not all that different from my current last name...but it sounds better.

Grillen Brewing.

You cant just come up with a name like it was nothing, it needs meaning. I have been pondering this concept for several months now and still have not settled on something. When the time comes you will know. till then worry about making good beer!

I agree with this. Even though I'm labeling my beer with "Grillen Brewing", it still doesn't feel right.

Good luck and I am jealous… I have about of the money need to open a brewery here in Virginia…

What do you think of Virgin Queen Brewing (HA)

I like beers from the UK and always thought the English-American Brewery would be OK if it was not such a mouthful... (I brew English styles a lot)

So don't think "Royal" think Regal... (Remember this is also for Marketing and people eat that stuff up) and there is a rich history to pull from….

Maybe go just go back as far to a WW2 Battle where the Tommie’s and their Canadian cousins fought together under great odds and won!

Or name it after a famous Canadian of English decent…

Or name it for you favorite pub, place, person from England… I would make sure they don’t sue though

Churchill West
Piccadilly West
YOUR NAME HERE WEST

Good luck.
