Just a thought here, do you guys name all your beers? And what are some of your favorites?

A little bit. At first they were all dog related names, such as docked tail pale ale, etc. now just a bit. Mostly known by type.

Norse gods and goddesses for the most part. Thor's IPA, Baldur's APA, Rane's Wit etc. For the first couple of years it was beer #1, #2, #3 etc.

Yes..... I do. For instance I have in house atm...... a Dark Wheat Porter- Charlie Murphy Darkness, Oud Bruin de Table- Belgian Sour Puss, Chocolate Stout-WV Coal Dirt & a Multigrain Red- Copper Top. I try to give each some kinda crazy name just for s**ts and giggles. Helps me remember what I have where and when I made it.

the wife wanted a Belgian wit, so it's called BigHair Belgian.

Commie little brother gets CLB Red Barley Wine.

my red ale for St. Paddy's day is O'Rob's Red Ale.

an American IPA I brewed is named after the county I live in, Loudoun and is LoCo VA IPA. I like that it also kind of means "going crazy" in Spanish.

my mock maibock was brewed in honor of my as yet to be born great-niece/nephew, and since they chose to not know the sex before it's born they have not come up with a name and are calling it Sweetpea, so it's Sweetpea Maibock.

I used to try to think up creative names, but now I name my beers based on circumstances surrounding the brewing or outcome of the beer. For instance, my American stout came out with a lot less late hop character than I was intending so I don't consider it an American stout anymore. So I called it Benedict Arnold's Oatmeal Stout (I did use oats) after the infamous American traitor during the Revolutionary War.

Some good ones in there! I used to name my beers, but stopped along the way. May have to revisit it for my next batch, a munich helles using German ale yeast. Anyone want to name it for me?
