Goon City Brewing. I grew-up in the town next to the one I live in now. We used to refer to the folks from my current town as "Goons" and called it Goon City, so it's sort-of a homage to my hometown, and my current one.

Crooked Tail Brewing
Named after one of my cats. He has a kink in his tail. When he stands it up it looks like a question mark.

Arctic Pups Brewing

I love the arctic dog breeds. I currently have a 13 year old Samoyed (Tundra) and a 5 month old Malamute (Kira). Even Tundra, at his ripe old age, is still very much a puppy most of the time.

The Worst of Philadelphia Craft Brewing (aka Worst Brewing/Worst of Philadelphia)

We actually joke around about a couple of different meanings (like a claim that we wanted to get into making wurst/sausage but changed our mind and the name slightly) but ultimately we decided on "Worst of Philadelphia" (and variations) because it tends to sum up our styles and desire to stray from the beaten path of many of the local/bigger breweries. Most of the time our brews are not just a simple interpretation of a style, but rather a brew with a twist. Especially for the BMC crowd, our beer is probably considered some of the "worst" beer. Of course, there's always the modesty approach that we make some great beer, but we're just not arrogant enough to call ourselves the "best" ;-)

Well, I play in an orchestra so my brewery name is "The Rusty Trombone Brewing Company". I like the way "rusty" sounds, makes it kinda different. What do you guys think?

Cat Hair Brewing

I have 2 cats, and they're always curious and "Try to help" during the brew process. I have to keep the cooling wort covered to avoid getting some namesake in the final product.

Um, er, Rusty Trombone has an 'alternate' meaning. . .

Marko, love the avatar. Since I'm not a Premium Supporter you have to click on my profile to see mine.

P.S> I could have gone my whole life not knowing what a rusty trombone was and that would have been just fine with me

I know, I nearly spit out my drink when I read it. I figured I would help those along who didn't get it. Very creative!
