Title: what not to name your brewery
Post by: tschmidlin on July 19, 2011, 06:13:21 AM
So what are some of the worst brewery names (real or imagined) you can think of.  I've got one . . .


Fluke Brewing Company.  If your beer tastes good, it's a Fluke. ;)

There's a local brewery that is opening (supposedly) here next year and they are going to call it "Salty Nuts".

Mmmmmm ....no thanks!

Speaking of which, I hope there's no FDA limit on sweat that can be introduced pre-boil. I'd be *way* over on this morning's mash.

At a lot of their locations, it's a pretty accurate description.

brewers tend to take the whole "blood, sweat and tears" thing too literally

Inside joke;  About 8 years ago we were on a family road trip and the kid was about tired of being in the car so I was telling him about fictitious beers (with ridiculous flavors and additions) that I was planning to make at the fictitious brewery that I was going to open.  After a few "yeah right" comments from the kid he asked, ok so what's the name of your brewery?  Right there in a field next to the hwy was the answer.  A cow standing perpendicular to us, tail stiffly raised in the air with the most impressive jet stream coming from his arse that I've ever seen.  "Pooping Cow! The name of the brewery is Pooping Cow."  Made the kid laugh anyway.

That's what we always used to say about our data bucket.  "If it works, it's a Fluke."

I've always wanted to brew a steam beer, and due to how close I used to live to Cleveland, call it "Cleveland Steamer".  ;D

I have aunts, uncles, and cousins who are all Flukes.  ;)

Every time I read this thread all I can visualize is the parasite called a fluke.  maybe that's another name not to use "The Parasitic Brewery".

I've always pondered why many bars, pubs, clubs, etc. like to have few or no windows and near-pitch black atmospheres, in some crazy attempt either to create mood lighting or to disguise how fricking dirty their bars and bar flies are.  Conversely, I have a different idea.  If I ever have a brewpub, I always figured I'd name it the "Well Lit Brewing Company" and have frickin white walls and ceiling, perfectly cleansed stainless steel bar and bar stools, and 300 watt bulbs lighting up the whole place.  How's that for awesome.  Tag line might be something along the lines of, "Don't just wallow in the shadows.  Get Well Lit."

If it wasn't for the excessive alcohol and dark lighting, I'd have probably never picked up any women in a bar. What fun would that have been?

The worst brewery name I can think of is "Hoppy Brewing Company," largely because none of their beers are hoppy. Now, if they called themselves, "Underwhelming Brewing Company," at least they wouldn't be guilty of deceptive marketing.
