Title: Inspired By (clone) Names
Post by: klickitat jim on February 04, 2014, 11:56:41 AM
I'm curious if anyone has fun naming their inspired-by beers. I'm going to do an American Stout with 1728 that I'm calling MacBeth, and a version of a reddish pale ale with centennial and cascade that I'm going to call Donner Party.

Ah, late night beer humor.

Going to brew some Brown Nuts Ale today, does that count?

Chinookiee Wookiee...a single hopped beer.  Guess what hop.

I also refer to my setup as The Blue Lightning Brewery

Where do I get my inspiration?  ;D

Oh, and my English beers are always named something cheeky. My favorite name is 'The Dog's Danglers', it's pretty epic when someone has to read that at an awards ceremony.

My Chinook ipa is called onchorynchus (genus for Pacific sakmon). My California common is "slipped anchor". And my Christmas beer for an ugly sweater party was "El Guapo: with a plethora of spices"

'The Dog's Danglers'

Awesome name!

It might be a little disturbing as a picture on a label

I just made a clone I'm calling pyrite.  Can you guess the name of the original?

My last one that missed the mark was named "Chimostcertainlyisnot".  Still a good beer... but not a Chimay clone.

Yup! Sierra Nevada... Donner Pass... Celebration... Party.... Donner Party. Kind of like a crossword clue. And MacBeth is a Scottish story written by Shakespeare... Shakespeare Stout with WY1728... MacBeth.

If you were here with all the snow it would be something more like "once more unto the breach" each time the dog goes out.

It. won't. stop. snowing.  Sheesh.

Going out to shovel again. Getting hard to throw the snow over the banks that are 5 ft+ high.

We're not quite there yet, but getting close.  Last week I came across some photos from 79 and shared them with my neighbors to make everyone feel better.  Even if it keeps snowing, I doubt we will catch up.  But I believe we are firmly in second place this year for overall snowfall in January.

+1.  It is freaking relentless. We're probably gonna finish 2nd all time, behind 1978.  8 more " with ice last night.

See, balk is a foul in baseball.  When a pitcher balks the runners get a free base, like stealing without the risk. And so that's why chickens don't make good umpires. Awe..... well, aaaanyway

Don't know if you've seen Blackadder, but one of my favorite episodes involves the Scottish Play.

I called my Shakespeare Stout clone "The Tempest", as there was a big thunderstorm the day I brewed.

Once in a while I brew a Moose Drool clone.  I can't decide which is better - Goose Stool Brown Ale or Loose Stool Brown Ale. 

Either one is admittedly immature and gross.  The beer, on the other hand, is delicious.

Ok, I feel much better about Left Nut Brown now.

And an Irish Red Ale recipe renamed 'That Time Of The Month' should fit right in.
