I chose "BarnYard Brewery" because of my last name being Barnard. Growing up kids always called me Barnyard. Also, when telling people how to spell my name, I say "Barnyard without a Y"

Great thread. I haven't thought about this, but my roommate suggested "Flying Frog Fish Headweiser".

I have decided on 911 Brewing Co. for 3 reasons. dad is a fire man and is retiring in may after 36 yrs, I am also a paramedic/ fireman and my late father in law was a 911 dispatcher for 20 + yrs. . So the Name just seemed to fit , My first beer is a Lager so I called it Long lay lager. Label soon to come.

Flying frog fish headweiser is way too close to dogrish head. Also the name is too long. Picking a company name is more of an art than anything. I would stick to something with two names only, it seems to be easier to say and fits well in normal conversations.

For example: There is a great craft brewery in michigan called Jolly Pumpkin.

Dieter Von Brauhaus, because I am nicknamed Dieter from a Mike Myers skit on Sat Night Live where he was Deiter Schultz German techno interviewer because I like to listen to German techno.

My Brewery is called Arsenal Brewery. Or it can be referred to simply as 'The Arsenal'. I'm a government contractor for a machine shop and I was working on a job for one of the arsenals here and I thought it was a cool name. That and the Arsenal football club is going to wreck Barcelona in the Champions game coming up!!!

It was a joke. Flying Dog, Dogfish Head, and Budweiser frogs all together at last.

Looking for some HBT help on naming my brewery.

I love Snowboarding/Mountain Biking, so some of the shortlist:

Backcountry Brewing Co.
Singletrack Brewing Co.
Fall Line Brewing Co.
Powder Hound Brewing Co.
Out of Bounds Brewing Co.
Straightline Brewing Co.
Snow Ghost Brewing Co.

I'm open to using other things than Brewing Co. like Brewhouse, Ale Works, etc.


Help a brother out!

Mine comes from SWMBO. Her dad had a stuffed Ravens head he bought at a yard sale when she was young. They lived on Raven street at the time so he thought it was cool. At any rate, we recently inherited it and now I think it's cool. Plus, I can use Poe references when naming my beers now (i.e. Hop Frog for my IPA).

Here's the head--and no, I don't know why anybody would ever pay to stuff a Raven's head.



I just saw it was stuffed in Jan. of '71 which is the month I was born. Even better.



Reason: New info
