Avion Brewing.

I am a pilot and have a French last name. All of my labels have pictures of airplanes on them.

So when are you releasing "Nevermore Light American Lager" - The beer that no longer has taste?

Just a suggestion / thought. "Avion", the word, has a bad rep these days because of the Bird Flu. It could deter a consumer from choosing your product over another, all else constant. Aviator may be a better choice. Not only is it more assertive as a name, but it also doesnt have a bad rep...great movie, trustworthy people, professionals,... the list goes on.

For a suggestion I would read "Starbucked" it is the story of how starbucks started and became a giant. The passage in there that stuck out was how they formulated their name. Apparently the three founders wanted a name that stands out in peoples heads. After researching they found words with ST and hard K's or other strong letters stand out in a persons head more. But they were sitting by the ocean and a freighter passed by them with the name Starbuc or something.

I kind of got side tracked there, sorry...BA in Marketing :P

He's a homebrewer. He's not trying to market to people, so his brand name really isn't that important. It's just for his own personal use and fun.

If he does eventually want to go pro, then Avion (or Avian) might not be a good choice for the reasons you mention.

Unfortunately, Aviator is already the name of a brewery about 10 miles from my house, so that one might have issues with trademarks and whatnot.

You guys are doing all the work for me.

How about Ourang-Outang Ale, or maybe a Cask of Ale-mantillado.

The possibilities are endless.

Back in the day I lifeguarded at a popular beach on the east coast. Before shifts you were assigned to your stand (1-14). Everyone wanted Stand Eight because it had the most action.

Cheers,
Brad

I like that.

I'm really leaning towards Fall Line Brewing Co. A buddy who is a graphic designer is mocking up some logos and I'll see if I like it.
