Ok,

I think I would like to name my brewery, it seems to be a rite of passage for homebrewers.

I am a displaced Oregonian (Portland to be specific) who lives in Texas for about another 24 months because of the army.

SWMBO and I have a poodle who is awesome, and are talking about getting a second one. We are definitely in love with the breed and I was thinking it would be cool to incorporate it into the name. Same concept as the "Lucky Lab" in Portland I guess.

The name SWMBO and I have come up with is: Phantom Poodle

I am open to suggestions, new names, new concepts, etc...

Another idea I've just had, and I think it might be more appropriate to skip the dog and somehow incorporate my Oregon roots with the location of the start of the brewery, Texas.

I'm just thinking out loud...

At first glance, Phantom Poodle is kind if weird because it looks like an alliteration but it's not.

I like it. A lot.

Lonesome Duck Brewing?
Beavers are the mascott of OSU, and I am a U of O fan (Ducks).
Lone Duck (lone star?)

There's a number of euphemisms you could have fun with if you went with "beaver"...

I'm having enough trouble coming up with my own name at the moment.. "Brew McQ" is just a placeholder.. lol

Nothing is off the table, including beaver. I hadn't thought of the euphemism aspect...

I had initially thought of Lone star beaver brewing which led me to One Star Beaver brewing.

... but then I thought "who would want a 1 Star Beaver" :)

Euphemisms: Wet, Shaved, Bald, Hairy, etc.

Non-euphemisms: Rabid Beaver (I like that one.. lol.. logo can be a crazed cartoonish beaver, holding a beer and foaming at the mouth..), Rabid Duck has a cool ring to it as well... umm...

Here's a list of adjectives. There are infinite possibilities of "[adj] [animal] Brewing/Brewery".

Or maybe I've just had way too much coffee this morning... :rockin:

Nice, the sweaty beaver ... that one gave me a chuckle

Afro Dog Brewing goes right in line with what i wanted to call the dog: Jefferson (its a black dog). No offense intended...

Platypus is good, but I really like the ring of demon duck.

Anything NOT dog related. I thought I was being clever with naming the brewery after our 3 pups, (12 Paw Brewery) but then I started noticing that pretty much everyone had something dog related.

But if you insist on a poodle name, go for "Poodles Red Rocket" :rockin:

Lonesome Duck is good, I think it might even be the winner. It sounds good, it looks good, it rolls off the tongue well and its family friendly.

Post army we are talking about moving to Eugene and 'going pro', I wonder how that name would work in Eugene as a pro brewery...

My wife who graduated from Oregon, did NOT like the cheerleaders ... Competition? ;)

So when you go pro. Since I came up with the name, do I get Free beer.:p

Since I live a few thousand miles away that would end up being almost nothing.

EDIT: Oops ... Mine was lonesome beaver brewing. No free beer for me.

The key words were 'talking about'...

We might go pro, we might not ... we've decided to start a business, but are unsure if it will be a brewery or something else.
