My brewery name came from my love for sci-fi and fantasy novels, in particular Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time series. I'm a huge fan of the Aiel in that series, and they live in an area they call the Three Fold Land. Hence Threefold Brewing.

It's also where I get my inspiration for beer names. Every one of my beers is named for something or someone in the sci-fi or fantasy genre.

I love this. Can't wait for the final book. You also just inspired a name change for me.

Three Banners Brewing.

For the three banners of the Ta'veren.

I noticed your Kingkiller ale. I just started that series. Also, I love your logo.

That is a great series also. One of my favorites. Rothfuss is awesome. Sadly he doesn't drink beer, but he does make his own mead, which is cool. He has this thing where he will sign books in exchange for something cool, so I am going to brew up another batch of the Kingkiller and send him a six pack along with a book to sign.

Tin Cup Brewing

Named after the tin mess cup that my grandfather carried in World War I. I loved to drink milk out of that when I visited him as a child. When he passed, my grandmother gave it to me. That cup is now sitting in my wife's china cabinet right next to the crystal.

That sounds awesome. Let me know how it works out, if you don't mind.

Mines 'Drunken Dwarf Brewery'. As I'm 5'1", stocky built and bearded, and love fantasy dwarves. Also the theme for my brew names too, I'm working on a mead called 'Copperhead Gold' atm, a reference to the dwarf mines in the Copperhead mountains from Pratchett's Discworld series.
