Man, I've been to the Schlenklera a hundred times! (Last time was last July) Although it's not a weissbier.

Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier (Original Wobbling Smoke Beer)...substitute "wobbling" with "staggering".

From looking at the website it looks as if they have several types; marzen,wheat, bock, lager, lent. (All smokey I guess)

I envy you having been there. I think staggering is correct!

I believe the one of the original owners was handicapped. The patrons could never tell if if he was plastered due to a bum leg. Hence the name Schlenkerla.

I can say I was schlenkerla-like in 1987 with Fox Battery, 2nd Battalion, 10 Marines up in Keel. Somewhere in Northern Germany. I was also in Pirmansens & Zweibrucke in '04. However I was with work and better behaved!

I've never been to Kiel, but I worked in Bamberg for 5 years.

I left in Feb '04, but was back there last year when I was modifying the the M120 120mm Mortars. They don't have any in Bamberg, that was a side trip. I visited my old neighbors and some American and German friends during my 2 weeks back there.

The only one I've names so far is my Chasin' the Tail Ale. After finally settling on a recipe, it's become very popular with my friends. Seems I keep chasin' my tail trying to make enough!

I have a name, but not a recipe, for my next Lager with a maritime theme. I was thinking "Davey Jones' Lager"

I dont realy do the fancy name thing for my brews. I just acll them by what they are; Irish Red, Scotch Ale; Blueberry wheat; etc . . .

About the closest thing Ihave to a fancy name is what I call my set up in the garage St Fuad Brewing. It's a acronym for what I want to say to 99% of everyone since deep down I'm not a people person, all though I usually put up a good front . . . The last 2 letters are just a tack on kinda deal since if I am brewing I would rather be drinking . . .

Anyways St Fuad stands for "Shut The F*** Up And Drink"

My wife is pretty forgiving but I almost pushed my luck too far this weekend. I made a starter on Monday to brew on Sunday and I was going to let her know what my plans were when I looked at the calender, her birthday is Sunday...DOH!!! I jokingly told her I was brewing but then told her I would take Friday off instead...

I got the flu on Wednesday and Im still sick.... Karma got the best of me....

Since Brewtopia wanted to revive the topic in another thread, here are the reasons behind the brew names in my signature:

Midnight Oil - it's a very dark beer, and I brewed it in the evening, finishing at midnight
Thunderstruck - a freak thunderstorm hit in the middle of my brew day
Yuri's Better Brew - Alton Brown calls his recipe "Good Brew"
White Christmas - REALLY creative (or not)...it's a spiced Belgian White style

I figured this must have been a topic of discussion in the past. Just didn't do the search. Here's mine.

I am a huge film buff and a fan of Film Noir and classic films of the 30's and 40's in particular, so I usually pick names inspired by films of that era. For example, I call my home brewery Naked City Brewing Company after the great 1948 Jules Dassin Film Noir "Naked City" starring Barry Fitzgerald and Howard Duff. Examples of beer names are listed below:

Films
Dubbel Indemnity Belgian Style Dubbel
Gilda Flanders Style Red
Casablanca Belgian Style Wit
White Heat Imperial Wit
Brigadoon Scotch Ale
Impact IPA
Hopacalypse Now Imperial IPA
Open City Alt

Actors
Bing (Bing Crosby) Spiced Cherry Dubbel
Ginger (Ginger Rogers) Ginger Peach Hefeweizen
Edmund Gwenn Grand Cru
Bogart Barley Wine
Cagney Imperial Red
Edward G. Robinson Baltic Porter
George Raft Oak Aged Imperial Stout

And one of my favorites is this year's winter ale
I want a legendary official Red Ryder 200-Shot Carbine Action Range Model Air Rifle with a compass and this thing which tells time built right into the stock. "You'll shoot your eye out" Winter Ale (Red Ryder Winter Ale for short).

I hope to post some of my tap handle designs on the label forum soon.

Add another to my list:

Floor Kill Ale - My Dead Guy inspired recipe. A "floor kill" is what happens when you scrape your adversary off on the ground in an air-to-air fight (dogfight)...almost always resulting in at least one "dead guy."
