HA! Just this weekend I went to a party and "volunteered" to help clean up afterward and to take some of the empties off of her hands. I don't think she noticed that I only took glass bottles that weren't of the screw-off variety. We've all got a bit of gypsy in us...

Yellow Dawg Brewing Co named for my Labrador. All my beers for the most part get hunting-type names - Pintail Pale Ale, Widgeon Wheat, etc...

I finally got through the whole thread, awesome names/stories everyone!

I have a few ideas kicking around but nothing that jumps out and says "pick me"

The Donk - from my last name Onderdonk
3 Peaks Brewing - from a mountain in Maine my family has been hiking since the 1920s
Belltower Brewing - the college I went to had a huge belltower
Wonderdonk Brewing Co- last name with a W in front of it.

I'm pretty crappy with names, help?!

Long & Short Brewing. Because my buddy's 6'7, and I'm 5'6.

Was just thinking about this - how about I use the first letter of the name of myself, my wife and kids?

JANES Brewing

What do you think? Lame or cool?

I think it's cool, but mostly because my dad named his first business Jemma after his and my mom's initials. It's endearing

Grain to Brain Brewing.

A silly statement that I made up, after a few pints, when asking a fellow brewer how long it took to prepare a beer from brewing to drinking when kegging for a chicken wing extravaganza in May.
