After the brew name thread, I was wondering what others name their brewery after.

I had a roommate that named his hooch (distilled spirits) after the street we lived on...Long Cove Distiling, and another roommate, Long Cove Brewing.

I've named mine after the marsh/swamp (named after a lake) behind my house.

So what's yours?

mine is boring, but has a meaning to me- Broken Leg Brewery.

I broke my leg playing hockey on March 16, and it still hasn't healed. I started a more "quiet hobby"- brewing. I have a new nickname, though- "Brewmistress". I would give any more details no matter how much you beg.....

Deep Six Brewing Co.

We sort of went serious with our name, just in case we ever make it big time - heh. Plus its just sounds damn cool (to me anyway).

***EDIT*** - Wanted to update this post with a copy of our new brewery logo.

This lake? (and yes, that is my photo):


Maybe I'll name my brewery Sprague Brewing:


I've got different angles of Bierstadt Lake if you should need one for some reason...just PM me.

Deep Six....is this a...you know....innuendo?

Anyways, currently i just use my initials (KSK) for my brew name plus the bavarian flag in the background for my bavarian heritage.

In the works of being copywritten is "Guilt Beer" which my father, myself, and another beer loving friend are eventually going to begin...like an actual brewpub restaraunt.

Do you have a Guilty Conscience? Need to make a Guilt trip? And perhaps a winery -- Guilty by association. Man, this is what happens when you study law.
