I couldn't think of a name for a Belgian blonde so I looked up dutch profanity and settled on klootzak (nut sack)

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

Thanks

Are they kits or your own recipe?

If kit it's already been given a name.

If it's your own recipe the all of the above suggestions are good.

If I get a dog from the pound, it probably already had a name, but today it gets a new name! LOL

I've started using hockey to help me with inspiration for new names. The one I'm drinking now is Hip Check IPA and in my fermenter is Slew Foot IPA.

So if you buy a copy of "A Tale of Two Cities" you change the name to Paris and London?

If I took took the time to retype the book, and was going to put it on my shelf (not sell it) you bet (for the record, I'd probably name it "Cure for insomnia"). The loop hole - My typing skills are much like the brewing process. Brew/Type it 10 times and come up with 10 really close, but slightly different versions....

[EDIT] BTW - on the flip side, I always call out the "reference" beer name on my labels even if I'm just attempting to clone a commercial brew

My recent brew names:

Old King Kolsch
I's Cream
My oh Rye

I entered the FOAM Cup a couple months back, and they had a special prize for the best beer name. The winner was "Bye Bye Miss American Rye Stout". That one was pretty good.

My all time favorite though, is the name of the beer that won the gold in the European Amber Lager category at this past weekend's Drunk Monk Challenge: "Hang One Of Those Sweet Ass Medals On Me". Brilliant.
