To tell the truth it makes me think of Goatse (don't ask if you don't know) but the name in and of itself is a good one.

I totally agree with everyone. I just needed confirmation. Now the task of coming up with something cool and unique.

I know it's dorky but it would be fun to come up with a fun name and logo to put down in the bar.

Northwestern PA doesn't have a lot of unique aspects so I'll have to dig into family ideas. Thanks for the honest feedback!

It ain't dorky (Well, maybe it is) But it's all part of the fun! It doesn't need to be funny or manly, it just needs to be personal IMO.

Personal, he says. He stole the name Laughing Gnome from me. Pay no attention to the thief.

You weren't using the gnome name, you were using the troll name if memory serves me correctly.

Ok to slightly highjack this thread...

I'm torn between using

"Cold, Dead Hands Brewery" and "Cold Hands Brewery"

Cold,Dead Hands comes from a quote from Charlston Heston "You can have my gun when you take it from my cold, dead hands." and also reflects a lot about how I feel with our second amendment rights. But I just don't think it flows off the tongue well.

Cold Hands would be a reference to not only the quote above, but also that I spent a couple years living in the upper peninsula of Michigan, and also that my wife always has cold hand she puts against me! The logo/theme will still be the same either way, I just think it sounds better.

I hope the logo will be an early settler sort of guy holding a musket in winter in front of a snow covered mountain. Most of the labels I hope to have U.S. Historical figures (Jefferson, Edison, Adams etc.)

Cold Hands is a great idea! Use Cold Dead Hands for your Halloween brew.

All of these good ideas, and nothing is coming to me. I'll have to spend some time to really figure this out and get it right. I'm really into golf, so I might go that route.

I was already going to start making a beer for the 4 majors based on where they are held each year.
