When you have these silly things around, you just have to roll with it.
Bela is the ring leader, that's her in the label. Tobias, aka Kitty-T(RIP) is pictured in my avatar.

About to start my very first brew tomorrow... Brewery to be named 'Doghouse Brewery', as the wife has had me there since I bought the brewing gear!!

First beer will be called 'Eager Virgin' as it sums me up in relation to my approach the homebrew!

Not that anyone really cares: I have decided I don't care that there is a Blue Lion Salon already, I am staying with the Blue Lion Brewing name, not switching to Lion Star (sounds too much like Lone Star, which was kind of the idea admittedly).

EDIT: Oh and the story.
My mother is 100% Bavarian, my father about 25% (both are born in Germany, so are my siblings). My first memories are from living in Munich and most of my family lives in Bavaria. So the lion is the traditional symbol of Bavaria (have a large tattoo of the lion on my calf) and blue is the traditional color.

I didn't want it to be too obvious that I was referring to Bavaria, so Blue Lion had a nice ring to it. If I ever learn how to use image creation software or maybe find someone who does, I want the emblem to be the Bavarian lion in blue over the Texas star with the branches on the bottom and side.

Incidentally that image of the lion is the same one as the tattoo I have but mine is in black with a light (Bavarian flag) blue eye.

Pipeline and storage changing too often to keep track of.

I have an IPA on regular rotation that I incorporated my 3 girls into the name and the label. Our last name starts with C and my IPA has 3 different hops starting with C (Citra, Chinook and Cascade) so I named the IPA 'My Three C's'. They, of course, think they're pretty cool having their picture on a beer label...

Six Hounds Brewing. We have 6 dogs. 4 dachshunds, 1 Bassett hound, and a Rott-Shepard runt that is an honorary hound. This is my first label attempt.

Mine is Broken Rouge Brewery. Have the lable etc in my head know just got to get SWMBO to obey me and draw it out. The name has a story behind it but its a story just for me at the moment. I declare copyright. That's legal right.

Three neighbors that all live on a canal leading to Lake Tarpon in Florida. The parrots represent each of us.

I would LOVE to get 3 Tap handles molded in plastic of our 3 heads to have on a triple tree tap!
