I haven't brewed a batch yet, but I call my setup "Mount McKinley Brewing ". Story behind it is my last name is McKinley, and I am a bigger guy. I also live on a mountain in central Pennsylvania and brew alliterative ales, stalwart stouts, loudmouth lagers, and any other styles I feel like. I don't have any logo or label design yet, but am working with a friend on coming up with that stuff soon.

Teal's Brewery

I spent a lot of time trying to come up with some catchy name/phrase. Then I realized that all of the really old school, great breweries were all family names that lasted generations. So that's what I went with.

Sticky Dogs Brewing comes from our 3 Dachshunds, Tobie, Marley and Ariel, who are not the best behaved. To discipline them we squirt them with lemon, which they hate but it is perfectly safe. You are supposed to squirt it in their mouths but they are small and fast and don't wait around to be disciplined, so they get squirted wherever I can get them. So there is always a sticky dog around.

I'm the forth generation of a family business called Atlas Spring & Axle.
On one of my orders from Austin Homebrew Supply I asked if they could draw me a picture of Atlas taking a drink out of his spring.

So I call myself,
Atlas' Spring

Third Rail Brewing. As my ex-SWMBO can attest, I'm a transit geek, riding the rails whenever I can. I'm also an urban planner by trade. But mostly, it just sounds cool!

EDIT: ...and it looks like a real brewery has recently started up using this very name! Time to start thinking up a new one. I wouldn't want to confuse my customers (all three or four of them!).

Me and my room mate who share a passion for this coined "Bickering Bros. Brewing Company". I love the guy to death but me and the guy LOVE to battle it out courtroom style all the time, arguing about anything and everything especially beer brewing practices and ingredient choices.
