Hey guys,

So after cranking out about 5 brews and some apfelwein, I have come up with a name for the brewery: (drum roll)

Devil's Thumb Brewing Co.

The story:
Devil's Thumb is a geographic feature of the flatirons mountain range in Boulder, and it is very visible from my balcony of my apt. The name came to me randomly the other day while grabbing a beer from the fridge.

So, what do you think? Im going to work on a logo tonight and will hopefully have something to show soon!

-Z

I like it. A devil winking and giving the "thumb's up" would probably make a nice logo.
