As for my few brews, nothing special about how they got names other then I looked for homorous takes on the name.

"Zwei Dice Dunkelweiss" for the rhyme (originally "No Dice Dunkelwiess, but I liked the german zwei better so I added two).

"Kennedizzle Red" because that's what one of my buddies calls me Kennedizzle (For shizzle )

"Bitter? I hardly knew her!" for the pun.

My next brew will be "Ctrl-Alt-Del Altbier" for the pun as well.

Jackassery, My brand name.. Comes from how my Co-workers and I describe what goes on daily at the command.

Sleeper Black Bitter = I fell asleep brewing a light APA and boiled it down into a Carmely and Black ESB (it actually tasted good when racking to secondary)

Leftover suprize = I got 6 lbs of DME scraped the yeast from the bottom of the hellfire ale.. and used leftover hops, steep grains.. no real style just leftover stuff.

Silly Scotch ale = is a Silly Belgium style wee heavy.

WTF Ale = The recipie was a clone attempt that turned out really good but tasted nothing like Sam Adams Boston Ale, so it got its name WTF is it? (it was good enough to repeat hence WTF2).

Spice White is going to be an attempt at Cloning Sam Adams white Ale, using a blend with 11 different spices.

Arm & Hammer Wiezen because I dropped a hammer into the bucket when racking and had to feach in with my arm & fish it out.......

Bust a Nut Brown Ale because I brewed ten gallons of it in February and had to lug it into the house to chill it and busted a nut in the process..........

Red Baron Bock because, well just because.

Gruagach 80/-
The gruagach is a spirit from Scottish lore/mythology. It was a fairy like creature that was drawn to campfires and rewards those who judge the spirit by character rather than appearance (the gruagach is very ugly). I thought that was a good name for my smokey scottish ale.

This is a female gruagach on the label:




Kaduva IPA
Kaduva is one of the Hindi words for 'bitter'. I wanted an indian name for my IPA. I also wanted something indian for the label, and I found this picture that seemed to say both "indian" and "bitter" all at once:



Pandora's Box
This one named itself. There is a history on this forum in several threads that chronicles the total cluster f*ck that was thie beer, from brew-day to bottling, to off flavors that settled. It was supposed to be a Fat Ture clone, but took on a life of it's own.

No need for an explanation of the label:



Holy Grail
This is the porter that I have never been able to nail down. It is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. I have not yet made the label for it.

Heehee love that tiger. Where the heck didja find that image? Our cat (of the 10 lb variety) used to make that face every time when he was on medication a couple years ago. He's not with us anymore, but I'd love to send that pic to my wife as a fond reminder... It's really dead-on with the expression.

You're right, "Zwei Wurfel Dunkelweiss" doesn't rhyme quite the same...
