Hi everyone. I'm still pretty new to both this site and brewing. I have done 2-5 gal brews so far and have been thinking about making labels. My only problem is I'm blanking on names. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I have a Belgian ale conditioning and a honey porter fermenting.

Thanks
Dan

Inspiration...your name, your spouse or girlfriend/boyfriend's name, your pet's name, your city/state/county/region, dates (anniversary, birthday, brewdate, etc.), style of beer, type of ingredients.

Options...alliteration (Billy Beer, Andy's Ale, etc.), acronym, pun, historical reference, pop culture reference.

My suggestions...Bill's Belgian Ale and Winnie the Porter (honey...get it?).

If you have kids let then name them. My kids are more creative. Dog Bone IPA, Who Farted Ale, Honey Smack Ale, etc. if the kids don't name it then I just go generic like Cascade Pale Ale

I am brewing (fermenting) my first beer, a Fat Tire clone. The working name we've is "Flat Tire" right now until we actually taste the beer.

The naming of the beer is the poetry! It is like a mumbled incantation, a wry spell, a jocular encouragement to the fabric of the universe. Beer is not complete without a name - the invisible ink at the bottom of the parchment that the reinheitsgebot is written on includes a name as the fifth mystical element.

make it personal. My friend and I debated about moving the beer to secondary or not.....we finally let our 4 year olds choose what to do, so the name of that beer was Toddler Brew.
