Made my way through all 198 pages and some really great stuff is out there! After thinking about this I think I have found a name that I will go with.

Dial Square Ale House--I am a very big fan of Arsenal FC and way back in the day their original name was Dial Square. For a logo I am thinking of a square clock face set to 8:14 since my two favorite players are Freddie Ljungberg who was #8 and Theirry Henry who was #14. The beer names would have an Arsenal/soccer theme.

I named my brewery "7 Cubed Brewing", after the nickname my wife and I gave to our wedding day (July 7, 2007). It helped that I already had the domain name ( registered

I named mine "Donspilma brewery" pronounced "Dont spill ma" as in what you say when someone gets near your beer. I have some Donspilma porter in the fridge and a Donspilma Irish Red going into secondary tomorrow. Our motto you ask? "Give em tha D!"
Heres a rough draft of the logo, I have a buddy working on a neon sign for me.

For forty plus years, my grandfather was the only roulette wheel manufacturer in the United States. Paul Tramble Roulette Service. In honor of him, Roulette Brewing.

Gerhard Deuss is my great-great grandfather who immigrated from Holland in 1863. He had a brewery in Minnesota in 1864..

Marked Crazy Neighbor Brewery many years ago and you can use your imagination for why I picked the name. Needless to say, my neighbors know me and enjoy my driveway brewpub!

Some think my brewhouse name is lame, however, I like it so eff em. I am a ship fitter (steel worker) by trade and I work in the naval shipyard. We are sometimes referred to as yardbirds. Hence:

Yardbird Brewhouse

I am thinking of doing something like this for my signature logo but I want a little bit of a different twist.

A label I made for the upcoming football season.

So, my first several idea were apparently very unoriginal, as a quick Google search shows me that they're already taken.

Here's what I'm thinking now:

Thirteen Alpha Brewing Company

13A is my MOS code (field artillery officer). I'm trying to make it Army/Artillery related if I can. I wanted to do Redleg Brewing, but there's one of those in Colorado Springs, apparently.

My HB name is based on an old B&M Railroad bridge in South Lowell, MA. Down the street from where I grew up. The logo is designed after an old Boston and Maine Railroad logo and incorporated the bridge in replacement of a minuteman.
