I'm not into baseball, but I AM into word play and themes... I dig the theme, and the beer names, and especially the scribbled logo... It's actually a really awesome logo, did you draw it?

McGookin is my maternal grandparents' name. As my only uncle (from that side) had but one girl, the name is not making it to another generation. At least it can live on on my beers.

The traditional crest features a row of cocks (the avian sort) and the first brew I actually labelled was called Cock's Comb, so the logo became a rooster holding a pilsner glass. It's ended up on my labels and my homemade tap handle.

I have started to think of a name, but I'm not real good at that sort of thing.
Does "Bibendum Bier Werks" sound alright? The idea"came" to me while watching a movie. Anyone care to guess what movie?

I used Illustrator to make the logo, started with just a silhouette and added layers and distortions to make it look the way it does.

Big Blue, that is awesome. We have a farm named "Stewart's Run" which is named after one of our roosters. The logo features a picture of Stewart. Pretty cool to be able to use the actual family crest on your beers.

Started brewing this past summer and at the time I got started my dad was killed in a auto accident, my brother n I were at the brew shop that day now that I think about it, but I committed to at least doing one batch to him and now almost 7 months later I had done close to 7 batches and have moved up to AG,

"Papa Doc Brewery" is the name, for in the neighborhood we grew up in we just called our fathers papa doc, why, no friggin clue lol but it's a tribute and every batch has gotten better, and the motto on the labels " the times we had, and the good ones to come"

We have a neighbor that thinks our dogs bark too much. One is a German Shepherd mix and has the Shepherdnattitude,map yes he barks at people in front of the house. Well the neighbor called county animal control and they that our dog wasn't a problem barker. The neighbor stated he would take care of problem himself and the county went nuts, ESP since he is a county employee.

Hence the name "Barking Dog Brewing"

My most obvious feature is that I have a massive head - the barely able to find a hat to fit kind of head and sure to make children that will be born C-section. So it seemed obvious, "Big Dome Brew." I figured that the reputation isn't leaving, so I might as well go with it.
