Rumshpringa Brewing Co.
Lancaster, PA

For those unaware, Rumshpringa is the Amish right of passage where boys are allowed to start drinking, smoking, driving, and basically just exploring the outside world without fear of being shunned. Being from Lancaster, we hear about all kinds of crazy sh*t that these kids do (From moshing at concerts, to driving like mad-men in their buggies while hopped up on cocaine). I've always loved the whole idea, and it just seemed to fit perfectly with the idea of homemade beer from Lancaster, PA.

As for the logo, I've always dug the hex signs the Amish put up too, so I worked in some bottles and hops.

Natron, I like the website you linked to in your signature, but I have one remark: Can the script that auto-resizes the window be done away with? I REALLY hate it when web pages insist they know what is best for my screen.

Other than that, I really like that website! I wish we had one like that for Nebraska!

Chimera Brewing - named after the horse my wife rode as a child. We still have the wooden name plate that hung above the horse's stall. So as a tribute to fact that my wife allows me to brew in the house without complaining: Chimera Brewing.

Worthless Brewing Co.

The name pretty much says it all

Thanks Chriso. That's my website and I'm the bastard that put the window sizing script in there. I appreciate your feedback though, and I'll let you know when we're ready to go national!

I especially like the coded little indicator graphics (beers vs wines, dive sign, wings, etc), they are really well done! Kudos on an excellent site, it's well-done!

Thank you again! Now if I could just get some real advertisers on there I'd be set! Most of those are friends' businesses or places that I just enjoy supporting.

I had originally wanted to use "Drunken Monkey Brewing Company", but (a) I couldn't come up with a good graphic, (b) there is a "Drunken Monkey" bar out there somewhere, and (c) there's a "Drunken Monkey" World of Warcraft guild.

So, I was looking thru my collection of funny photos I've found on the web, and I noticed I had an image that was a chimp face photoshopped onto the iconic Che Guevara image with the caption "Viva La Evolucion" (clever, no?). I'm fairly liberal, so much so that my coworkers at a former job liked to poke fun and call me a socialist (I'm not). Everything mashed together in my brain, and this bit of brilliance spilled out...

Red Monkey Brewing Company.



Current taglines are "Viva La Brewvolucion!" and "Porter for the People!" I'm sure I can have a lot of fun biting Marxist propaganda when coming up with beer names and labels.

I have so many passions it is hard to pick a name, but one thing close to my heart is the right to bear arms.

What do you all think of 2nd Amendment Brewery? I think I'd make my logo with a musket in it as I do like my muzzleloaders.

Anyone good with logo making?
