Just brewed an American Amber with apples last night. I'm going to be submitting it to a local beer festival to pour with my homebrew club. They want to have horse or horse racing themed names for the beers since its being held at a racetrack. My bf and I can't for the life of us come up with a name. We've looked at names of race horses and kinda like "Drink Me Pretty" or "Sotally Tober", but those are kinda obscure race horses. We also thought of "Pony Treats" since everything in the beer can be made into a horse treat, but it doesn't really sound all that great for a beer.

Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I love naming my beers, so here's some suggestions off the top of my head:

Apple Dapple

Inside Rail

Party Jones (get it, a play on Smarty Jones)

Funny Cider ( a play on Funny Cide)

Thunder Gulp (a play on Thunder Gulch)

Or, you could call it The Amber Apple-Loosa, and say something along the lines of "The Black Stallion don't got NOTHING on my Amber Apple-Loosa!"
Or, you know, you could not listen to me. That's probably a better decision since my idea is sounds like it's based on juvenile fiction and a fruity martini.

Jockey Juice?

If it was a brown ale, I'd suggest Triple Crown Brown. That doesn't help you though.

Win. Place. Show Your Ass.


In all seriousness I like the Appleloosa that was suggested above.

Let us know what you decide to go with.
