I hate my current job, so I've always leaned towards Disgruntled Workers Brewery

Mine is z-man brewing co. Based on my 12 years younger little sisters inability to say my childhood nickname correctly. I am currently producing a "crossing crafts" line of brews paying homage to the many crafts I enjoy taking part in... I am a culinarian (not just a foodie, a properly trained, schooled, and got my ass beat up for 20 years in the business professional chef), a musician (rock star actually...at least in my own brain), somewhat of an artist (though most of that talent is in my mothers hands - she helps with label designs), and now a newb brewer. I've been at it for 3 months...brewed and bottles a blonde ale, an ipa and a stout. I really enjoy my newly found craft...

Was named just for sh*ts and grins "Crooked Rooster Brews" as in I like chicken wings and brews, plus it sounds better than drunken chicken Now it seems to be taking off. Got 3 sources of investment funding considering our proposal for a concept brewpub with an area for John Q. Public to do mini mash brews located west of Jacksonville, FL (Looking like $500K to make it turnkey). Wife is helping me with some of the artsy fartsy stuff.

Weapons grade brewery
462 brewery in honor of the old designator to my career field or
2w1 brewery which is my current afsc

I recently started shaving my head bald and proclaimed to my workmates that this summer I would have a golden dome. One of them suggested I name my homebrew that. I am also fat so all of my brews will have a fat theme in their name. Here is my first label. In the fermenter, I have "Portlygeist" - a robust porter infused with the spirit of vanilla. Last night I brewed "Chunky Dunky" - a dunkelweizen, I think next time I make the dunkel, I will switch out or add chocolat malt to make it live up to the name.

Renegades Brew is named after one of our dogs. (The black tri-color Corgi)

He got that honor because the Red one got the sausages named after him: Romeo's Sausages

Of course pictures of both!

I have so much brewed that I have run out of storage space. I need some friends to come over and enjoy the fruits of my labor.

We named ours Liberty House Brewery. Our German Shepherd, Liberty rules the house...so she got naming rights, and rights to all the spent grain and spent grain doggie biscuits she can enjoy. Brewed our first batch last night, and man did she scarf up the grain mixed in with her food.

I've been throwing around a few ideas. My girlfriend and I just moved to a town west of Boston, and up until the late 60's there used to be a subway line here called the A-Line. I was thinking of naming it A-Line Aleworks or A-Line Brewing in honor of that. Another idea I had was naming it after the Alewife, a fish from the area that was named because people thought it resembled a heavyset tavern keeper's wife. So I was thinking either Alewife Aleworks or Alewife Brewing. Thoughts?

A-Line Aleworks has a nice ring. Alewife sounds... weird. Like you are making fun of your wife.
