Pale Ailes Brewing

Last name is pronounced "Ales" so it makes sense.

One of my racing friends dubbed me "Blue Flag Brewing" in honor of the racing flag painted on the hood of my car slightly humorously.



It is a cautionary flag that means "Faster car approaching behind you."

Bad Christian Brewing Co. On another message board I post on I routinely get called a bad Christian. It sounds cool for a brewer and has an inside meaning so it's what I've decided to go with.

Mine is actually kinda simple. I have two daughters, Madison and Catelynn... So Mad Cat Brewery was born. I still don't have a logo yet. I have a very funny pic that I want to use in it but I have no idea where to start.

The only thing I have done more than brew beer is rename my fricking brewery. I come up with things that I like, but nothing ever really "hits it" for me.

Currently, I am calling it (based on my opinion of the HERMS system I just built):

Dunno If I'll use this name/logo or not, just playing around in photoshop really.

Your frog does not look very angry.

My previous name was "Dead Frog". Here's a logo I whipped up, but the name "Dead Frog" just didn't roll of the tongue well.

edit: the history for the name Dead Frog was that within a couple of weeks time, I found a dead frog floating in one of the carboys I had on the back deck (he must have crawled up and in and was screwed) and then I found a mumified frog in a cardboard box full of misc brewing tools in the garage (again, climbed in and was screwed.)

Since I am not creative at all my wife came up with the name for my brewery. Mygan Brewing Company. My twin daughters names are Myelle and Reagan so she just put their names together.

We're both into a lot of random things and the shop started carrying everything from gaming supplies, to chainmail jewelry, to custom engraving, to furniture all with a bit of a geeky feel to it so we renamed the shop "Geek of all Trades." When I got into brewing I just decided to stick with the name since I'm planning to open a SteamPunk themed bar after I graduate so this is really just one more facet of my geekery.
Off topic, but I went to the Steampunk World's Fair in NJ 2 months back and felt like the cool kid in the room for once.

A friend with a similar feeling texted me later that night with "can you imagine right now how many people are losing their virginity while wearing aviator goggles?"

I agree that it doesn't look very angry, i would like to change my adjective to something else that will work with the frog i have. Any ideas?
