So here is my logo that I am working with Brew Brand Creative and wanted to get everyone's advice. I initially was going to go with the Drunken Tortoise but I am not sure how well it will translate in the professional setting. I was think of another adjective to describe the tortoise. If anyone has any input I would much appreciate it.

I am no design expert my any means but if i were to see this on a shelf i dont know if i would be able to bring myself to purchase it. The idea is in the right direction but the design you have here now looks kinda childish, not to offend at all just how i feel. If it had more of a mature feel to it i think it would be spot on. I do like the name drunken tortoise but think the design needs a little improving. Here is the only good image of what i have in mind. You could make it look like something more from the early 20th century, still keep the color just not as bright.

just to clarify, i do like how you have the label set up as far as the position and emotion of the tortoise, the vest is cool too, but think it could just use a more mature and masculine feel to it in order to be attractive to the vast majority of craft beer consumers.

The Thirsty Tortoise? Maybe that sounds more like a bar than a brewery.

the Thirsty Tortoise

Art Nuoveau is coming back. Maybe something with that as a theme. Would def look more respectable.

Yea, I am waiting for the redesign. I will post up when I get it. I am getting more artistic, like the one in the link.

Just going to throw some random ideas out there.
What about one with its stuck upside down on the ground? Tipsy tortise?

Or something animated but more artistic, like: http://www.fubiz.net/usersstuff/anim...-by-talktosam/
Maybe something with the geometric spaces on the shell.

Something with a naked tortise outside of its shell?

You are from Florida, what about a more sea turtle look?

Have you thought of any sort of motto or saying that you like?
eg. Beer that gets you out of your shell
