29 1/2 Brewing Co.

We live at #29 and I keep my fermentors and bottles in the cupboard under the stairs. My wife came up with it. I guess Harry Potter lives under the stairs and his address is 1/2 or something like that.

Well I have for a while been trying to combine my interest for the American Revolution with beer, it had to be original without sounding too corny.

I had a breakthrough yesterday.

Broadside Brewing Co.

Broadsides were the "Extra" papers of the day (although even that is an outdated term, only the biggest papers do extras editions anymore, maybe it is the Twitter of the day?).

So when the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4th, 1776, it was brought straight to the Continental Congress's official Printer. John Dunlap who owned a print shop on 48 Market St, Phila, PA.

He spent most of the night setting type, running test copies, and printing about 200 copies of what became known as the Dunlap Broadside.

In my opinion, one of the most important versions of America's sacred documents (only the Constitution is more important in my eyes). The engrossed Declaration of Independence is nice but was completed over a month later. This was the version everyone in the colonies heard the news from. It is said Washington himself received a copy that he read to his troops.

I own a reproduction done on period style letterpress from Prints by AJ, and would encourage anyone with an interest to throw the guys the 20 bucks it takes with shipping to get one. I framed mine and hung it above what is soon to become my yeast culturing workstation.

Anyway, going off of this theme, I have thought of a few names that I am quite happy with.

Print Shop Pale Ale
Dunlap's Dunkel (Dunkel Weizen or Dunkler Bock)
Long S Stout
Letterpress Lager
India Ink IPA
Movable Type Mild

Special work done on a letterpress is said to be "Inked by Hand" I figured that could be a good name for any specialty series beer ala New Glarus Unplugged.

So what do you think?
Broadside Brewing Co.

I love that graphic. Very cool cell-shading style that I think is very cool these days.

whew, i read every page of this thread and love it! i've been working on a brewery name. it was almost "Bionic Brewing". that's what i dubbed my 4x4 Land Cruiser project, Bionic. I rolled it and am building it back "bigger, faster, stronger".

but after a long list of other possibles, the wife and I agreed, in the vein of what's been said here many times- "get a topic that offends the most # of people and run with it"... we went with-

"Atheist Abbey Brewery"

my wife and i come from very opposite religious backgrounds. both of us have become atheists since. OK, onto a logo!

Görges Brewing.

Görges is the original German spelling of my last name. I have always been very proud of my name and I like the idea of something being named after it. Even though we don't use the "Ö" in the name anymore, we still pronouce it the proper way. So I wanted to include the umlaut in my brewery's name so it is pronounced as it spelled.

When I first started brewing, SWMBO asked where the alcohol in the beer came from. I told her it was a bi-product of the yeast eating the sugar. So she said, "So, you're drinking yeast poop beer?" Hence, Yeast Poop Beer (YPB)Brewing

Wow what a thread!!!

I opened it hoping to get a few ideas for my own brewery name. After reading every post in all 71 pages I have a few but I think they are lame. I think I am going to just wait till the name sticks that fits perfectly.

Some of the ideas I had. None that I love.

Cedar Lane Brewery (Our first apartment was on cedar lane.
BAD Brewery my initials are B A D
Lazy Summer Brewer (I started brewing while taking my first summer off as a teacher, normally I work summer school)
Olde Brick House Brewery....I live in a brick house built in 1782.

Beer is good, God is great, and people are crazy.

Fork and Hay Brewing

An audible pun if you say it fast enough (F***ing A!)

For years I thought about opening a tavern by this name when I retired. Since I am now unlikely to retire before death I had to readjust my goals.
Fork and Hay Brewing

The warmest beer you ever drank was just cold enough.
