I don't have all the fancy labels like Walker and friends do.....

But a couple from my sig:

Lake Walk Pale Ale: Part of the name happens to be the name of the street I live on (Lake Walk Crossing). I think LWPA was my first attempt at a recipe on my own, and it actually turned out good so I named it after a place I'll always remember as where I started brewing.

Liquid Panty Remover: This is a sweet stout that SwAMi and I tried to clone from a beer we had at the NHBC. We named it that at the conference club night because the women kept coming over to our table for refills of that stuff. FWIW, I almost got slapped by one chick after I told her what the name of it was.

Snatch Patch IPA: This is actually SwAMi's "Standard IPA" recipe, but I named it this for a buddy of mine who moved to Tejas. He and I and a bunch of buddies brewed it last summer before he left. The name comes from one night when we were at Greene Leafe cafe (a collegey hangout with a great beer selection) in Williamsburg, and we were sitting in this really big booth with about 10 pretty good looking women. Hence the name of the section we were sitting in. Classic.

Mexican Blackbird: Named after a classic ZZ Top song. If you listen to the lyrics, it just screams "brew a beer for me". It is a chile beer, which makes it even more fun.

I've had others, but they escape me for the moment, and/or are probably stupid.

On Tap: Lake Walk Pale Ale -- Eternity (Raspberry Stout) -- Nutrocker -- Donnybrook Dark
Primary: Lake Walk Pale Ale
Secondary: Summit IPA
Up Next: Smoked Porter -- Pub Ale -- Watermelon Wheat

Google image search for "bengal tiger" and I rummaged through the results until I found that one.

Here's the original image before I started hacking it up:

I gave up on names not too long ago. I got tired of thinking of some meaningless name for my beer. Now I just make a lable with the beer style, the date it was kegged and the ABV.

I'm kind of in Monster Mash's opinion on naming my beer unless I use someone elses recipe that I like then I'll keep their name for it. I do have one that is sticking:

Frank's Robust Porter - neighbor's name is Frank Porter. He doesn't drink but he likes to yap a lot and it is a robust style of porter. And its an awesome porter.

Two others that won't be used again are:

Burnt Monkey Gut Brown for when the starter DME got stuck in the pan and I spilled some hot wort on me belly.

Buggy Beligum Wit for the weavils that were crawling all over the grains. Beer was still good but better not get more weavils from my HBS.

Old Bog Water Barleywine: My first one and I wanted a little peat, 8 ounces is too much. But, it grows on you.

Church of Chocolate Brown: Part of the complex history of Pastor Dave singing the paise of Chocolate.

Revenge: A black berry cider best served cold. If you've ever picked wild blackberries ...

Fat Pug ale: Named for my 28 pound pug, Hercules Rockefeller, and For Fat Tire ale, for which is it a lame clone (for now I'm working on improvments for the next batch)

Hercules Rockefeller Pug Stout: Again named for my stout 28 pound Pug

Apu's Quickie Mart IPA: named for Apu from the Simpsons.

Dr. Nicks's wound sanitizer chili beer: a chili beer hot enough for Dr. Nick Riviera to use it in surgery.

Cletus the Slackjawed Yokel's hillbilly Pale Ale: another Simpsons's charachter

So far I'm stuck with the two themes for my name ideas, so I might just switch to just naming them for the type of beer.
"let me be the first to welcome our new insectile overlords"

On deck: Breakfast stout
Primary: Empty
Secondary: American Pale Ale
Conditioning: None
Kegged: Imperial red ale, Breakfast stout, Chipotle Irish red ale, Biermuncher's C3C cream ale

Holy heck Monster that's quite a setup you've got there. I get flak from SWMBO for hogging all the space in the closet under the stairs with my 6.5 gal buckets... But one day...

Default Names

Vienna Hausfrau Lager: Wife had three college friends for the weekend. They went out on a ladies night out. The dog & I stayed home and brewed a Vienna style lager, but w/ ale yeast.

Big Boob Blueberry Brew: Many months ago my wifes friends came up to visit, they all went shopping for bras w/ inflatable bra inserts. They all posed for a busty photo before heading to the bar. The photo now on the bottle label.
(Sorry no photos)

Cali Pale Ale: California beer style....

Northern Brewer Cream Ale: Cream Ale Hopped with Northern Brewer Hops

Bamberg-Style Weiss Rauchbier: Soon to be a 1st attempt to clone Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier (Original Wobbling Smoke Beer - Wheat)


Makes you want to go there. Its inspired this clone.
