Not brewin' yet.....gonna have to wait til winter and I can't go outside and work in the backyard anymore....come on rain! But have the name...Blue Dragon Brewery.

It won't be hard to come up with some sweet logos. I'm a cop and the name comes from a special enforcement unit I used to belong to. We drove dark blue unmarked cars with tinted windows. They screamed COP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our predesors coined the name for the unit The Blue Dragons and it stuck. How could it not, that's just a cool name.

Oh and EdWort.....that is a bitchin' logo

This has been a long time coming for me, but I think I have finally settled on a name that suits me, and my approach to brewing. Inspired by one of my heros, my brewery will be represented by Indian Larry's logo, the question mark. I haven't decided exactly on the name--if it's going to be Question Mark Brewing, simply "Question Mark", or even the totally artsy fartsy route, and just use the logo with no name at all.

I always admired the guy, and his approach to building bikes. He blended his incredible mechanical abilities with an artist's approach and made bikes that were both rolling art and (apparently) good riders. The question mark, as I see it, symbolized the fact that at the end of the day, he did what he did because he loved it, and couldn't be taken too seriously. That's the same approach I try to take. I want to be innovative, make quality beers, and have fun doing it.

Now, I just have to settle on an actual name, and come up with a logo! It's taken me this long, so I reckon it can wait until I actually get my brewery up and running again. In the meantime, if one of you talented folks has any ideas for a logo, here's some examples I'll probably work from:

May you go marching in three-measure time
Dressed up as asses, drunk to the nines
Swing from the rafters, shouting those songs
Gone unsung for far too long

My nickname has always been Slimer. For my Cider, I'm planning on calling it Slimer's Pectoplasmic Cider.

For the brewery name, I need some help. PM me with any ideas.

I call mine "Sean's Brewery & House of Ill Repute" Mostly because its very seldom I can do something I enjoy and piss the wife off at the same time!!
Studies show that three out of four people make up 75% of the worlds population.

No firm, chiseled in stone, name yet. My Grandfather labeled me with the nickname Shaggnasty when I a was toddler, that has stuck with me for life. No one really calls me that, but if anyone in the family sees or hears it there is no doubt on who it refers to. "Shaggnasty's" something or other may be it.

However I was Driving down Leonard st. in grand Rapids a couple months ago and saw that the old Engine House no.9 was for sale. I thought Engine House would be a great name for a brew pub or brewery and of course playing on the fireman/fire truck thing for names of the brews. Such as Speedwagon IPA with a picture of an old Reo Speedwagon on it and of course Engine House Pale ale that would have a Dalmatian in the forefront sitting on the lawn in front of the fire station. All just ideas to go with the money I don't have, but it's still fun to dream about.

By the by, if you don't know it already that is where the band R.E.O. Speedwagon got their name. It's a fire truck.
1st Primary:Cacade/Orange Pale
2nd Primary:Wild Hop Pale
secondary: Inspired Clone

Kegged: Edwort's House Pale, Honey Porter, BierMuncher's Black Pearl Porter
