We were there earlier this spring, really enjoyed the beer. Our daughter lives in Denver and brought a couple growlers back to nebraska for our family reunion this weekend. Needless to say they didn't last long. Good job.

Would you be competing against them in their marketing area? If not I doubt it would be that big of a deal. Could you imagine Sierra Nevada suing a girl named Sierra Nevada in Pakistan for naming her beer after herself?
except I can go out right now and buy a bottle of Fullers ESB. not at it's best to be sure but...
This is exactly why you will get sued. No question about it. It's going to confuse people anyway. "Fuller's has a brewery here, now?" Which is exactly why the real Fuller's has copyright/trademark rights. To keep out imposters from profiting off their name.
I can't understand why you wouldn't want an original beer name. And unless you like working for free, don't open a brewery.
Yes, it was a kit. I think it was about 6-8 years ago and I still have a couple bottles.If you have the time, make your own.i made a chocolate raspberry port a few years back and it was awesome.
In addition to buying a bottle now, I'd like to give this a shot soon. Did you use a kit? It would be great to do up a batch and see how it develops over the years.
So I am starting this post so I can vent to others who may share the same pain as me. I feel like my kids secretly plot to sabotage my home brew. The most recent distruction I noticed was at 7:00 this morning when I opened the fridge. I had rinsed some Wehenstephen Wizen yeast about two weeks ago. It looked amazing and I had probably 700 mils of it just minding its business in the fridge. Well my youngest had turned the fridge to the coldest setting causing everything to freeze. My jar of yeast was frozen solid. I might have tried to salvage some of it but the lid popped off causing some of contents to go everywhere before it completely froze in the middle of the night.yea, those darn teen agers, what ya goin do wit them
I kinda guessed that, just being a smartass.
Instance two. So I often let my oldest help me out by adding hops during the boil or just tagging along to the
LHBS. About a month ago I did a batch late morning and she was helping as usual. I turned off the burner and put my immersion chiller in and went inside to get some coffee. When I opened the door to go back outside, the very sight of what she was doing horrified me. She had the end of the hose from the chiller where all the water comes out pointed right at my kettle. God knows how much of that water made it in there. She cried and I almost did with her.
So there's a couple of my stories, what have your minions done to you to sabatoge your brew?
No not teenagers. I have a 6 year old, 3 year old and a two year old. All girls and there not always crazy. Just sometimes
