OK, so I get the people who are striving to make a business (brew pub, etc) out of it, but why do people who just brew for fun need a name? I think some of the labels are cute, but beer company names?

I just want to figure out the reasoning behind this.

Why not? We don't HAVE to, but we choose to. It's part of the fun my friend.
