When I got my brewing equipment back about a month ago, after an 8-year hiatus, I got my friend into brewing. We refer to my friend as "the mermaid" because she looks like one. I live on a yacht in Miami, and cannot brew beer on it because it moves too much, the temperature fluctuates, and when we have a charter, I'd have move all that stuff off the boat, and well...fermenting worts don’t like to travel. So, we came up with "The Mermaid Brewery" where we set up the 15-gallon brewpot poolside to brew our delicacies.

We named our beers along with that theme. We have Mermaid Tail Pail Ale (misspelled “pale” intentionally because the label for that one will be a mermaid tail in a pail splashing in a delicious amber colored IPA), and High Tide Wheat, f/k/a Rock Your World Wheat (what I called it when I was a landlubber), due to the high alcohol content created by all the extra honey I add. Next, we have Sanctuary Summer Ale, named after my yacht, Sanctuary. Sanctuary Summer Ale is modeled after Sam Adam’s Summer Ale. After that, there is Sandbarhopper Ale, for which I don’t have a recipe, but I love the name. I was thinking of something really hoppy, but I don’t think I can make anything hoppier than the Mermaid Tail Pail Ale which is pretty much a close of Sierra Nevada’s Torpedo Ale, extra IPA. Lastly, I want to come up with a Junkanoo Brew, named after some incredible trips we’ve taken on the boat to the Bahamas. At first, I thought of perhaps a Kalik clone, but then, Kalik is a really crappy beer, and I’m not going to brew crap.

If anyone has any ideas for our Sandbarhopper Ale, or the Junkanoo Brew (maybe a amber ale, or a dark beer?)


Ang....(and the mermaid!)

I am a big fan of UofM and I have a bumper sticker on my car that says M GO BLUE! So in that theme, I named my home brewery M GO BREW! Brewing Co.

Does anyone plan on trademarking their name? There are some amazing names and marks here!

I'll copyright mine, but trademarking would mean I'd have to defend it. I can't afford that now. (That's how I understand it... I am not a lawyer.)
