Porter-Milton Brewing Company - my house was the foreman's house for the Porter-Milton Ice Company. They harvested ice before the refrigeration era.

Wolf & Herders Brewery.
I have a Wolf and my fiance has 2 herdering dogs (blue heeler and a border collie), and I love puppies.

Edit: I'd love some help on label design, with people that actually know how to use photoshop. PM me, please!

Boidsnest - my family name is Boyd, my dad is an avian veterinarian... Plus it lends itself to slogans - "nothing sadder than an empty Nest", "they always return to the nest", etc.

Don't have a label per se yet - my family coat of arms is a red and white checkerboard on a blue shield, so I use address labels with a blue stripe top and bottom and the beer name printed over the checkerboard (usually I'll put a stripe approximately the color of the beer behind the text, too.)

I'd *like* to do an oval label with a nest motif and an icon of the featured ingredient in the middle of the "nest", with the red-white-blue as a neck ring. But that's a project for when I have a lot more disposable income. Like after the kids are off to college.

Changed mine from Kynge Brewing Co (people couldn't pronounce it king with a king card as a logo, pic below) to King's Court Brewing Co

My brewery is called Psych Doc Brewery. Simply explained by the fact that am a Psychiatrist. I have been brewing for about 2 years now. My in-laws got me my first kit. I did one extract batch, one partial mash, and then went all grain and have not looked back. I name my beers with witty psychiatric themed names.
