Title: Name My Pub - Finals
Post by: bcnihart on January 13, 2010, 08:15:28 PM
I appreciate all input into the naming of my brewpub and have narrowed it down to three.  The choices are "The Landing", "Reads Landing Brewing Co.", and "Pepin Brewery".  Please post a reply and let me know which one you like best.

Also, once I determine the name, I will be setting up a facebook and twitter page to allow potential customers a chance to follow the progress and grand opening of the pub.  If you would like to be included on as friends or followers, please send me a PM with your email address and I will add your name to my list.  Once opened, I plan to offer spur of the moment deals on food and beer using twitter.

Thanks to everyone that submitted ideas.

I like 'Ye Olde Pube' better than any of those.  :P

J/K Good Luck. Cant wait to see updates.

BTW I am a SS welder and fabricator. I have worked in several breweries and brew pubs.

So if you need someone...have beer will travel.

I think I like the simplicity of "The Landing" the best.

Pepin (unless it is a local place?) would seem to me to have a slightly ambiguous pronunciation, therefore I think I will go for Reads Landing Brewing Co.  Is it Reads or Read's?

He welds suplerfuous nipples, in plain sight, always in odd numbers. So anytime you give a tour - someone would say "that's odd" and you could say - "EXACTLY!". He's got a sick sense of humor that way.  ::)

If you expect to go big - I would think more than just The Landing and less localized than Pepin.

I would go with "Reads Landing Brewing Co."
A lot of breweries are named by geographical location.

I would love to follow the progress but I am not big fan of Facebook or twitter.
Could you do just regular blog?
Something like this:

Reads Landing Brewing Co. gets my vote.

Folks will naturally shorten it to Reads Landing, Reads, or The Landing as you start developing a reputation and get some regulars.

Best of Luck!

Other than owning a building, and having great consensus on the name... what makes you qualified for owning a brewery? This is educational - not a slam or opportunity to tear you down. Why do you think you'll make it?

I voted already, but Reads Landing blah blah blah.....

I have been in contracting since I graduated from college in 1984.  I have worked for other people and owned my own business.  I have grown tired of that business and realized that life is WAY too short to bust your a$$ doing something that just is not challenging anymore.  My dad did that and worked until he retired at age 65.  Two years later, he died of a heart attack.
While I have some experience with a restaurant, I have a real desire to brew beer and sell it to my customers.  I want to do something that will not only challenge me but give me a sense of fulfillment.  I know that the restaurant business is tough.  I know that beer brewing is hard work.  But there will also be a great reward when I sit down with my customers, tell them about my beer, and hopefully create a customer that will give up his Budweiser crap and see the light of an excellently crafted beer.  If I fail, at least I gave it it my best shot!

Cool, how long have you been brewing for?

You know everyone on here is jealous....  ;)

With a good accountant this should totally be a business expense. :D
