Nice twist of creativity Drew.  :)

I like your perspective on this.

I cannot be bothered to name my beers. Usually, it'll be called after it's style inspiration: "Special Bitter" or "Pale Ale" for example. Why name them? Sounds like a commitment. I don't want to get too attached since they are rarely around long enough. ;)

"Liquid Panty Remover"

I've never understood the logic behind those names. It sounds like people are advertising that they're date rapists. If you need to get women really drunk for them to take off their clothes for you, you're doing life wrong.

agreed...that or you're doing women wrong...

I've been inspired by this thread to come up with a few beer names:
"Winning personality" Porter
"Sense of humor" Saison
"Not much of a talker, but I love to listen" Lambic
etc.

Interesting article, thanks.

I don't really agree, but then I drink a good portion of my beer.  Obviously a name will not affect my own perception of it.  The stuff I don't drink is given to people who are just grateful for free beer.  When I go to a fest I want to know what style is being poured into my glass.  Preferably any special ingredients.  And then I'll taste it and let the beer speak for itself.  *shrug*

thanks again--

P.S. - I do make an exception for failed experiments.  I'm on "FAIL ALE" #7 or so.  I include a nice "FAIL" image on a label and bottle a few of them.

Lol!

I think "Concern Troll Kolsch" would be appropriate too.
And there's always the popular "Hold on, honey, someone on the Internet is Wrong Wheat"

I think there's a few xkcd comics that are appropriate right now.

I don't normally name my beers as I haven't developed any of my own recipes as of yet. So I usually just go with the recipe name given by the original author; "DC Wry Smile IPA", "Grateful DeadGuy", "Cowboy Alt". It did get me thinking about naming a batch that is brewed for a special occasion.

Personally, I find casual misogyny as offensive as casual racism. In other words, I find it a little bit more upsetting than someone claiming you never need to make a starter, or you should ferment your beer at 90*F.

Thank God this is America, where anyone is free to be a bigot, and I'm free to deride them.

Obligatory:

http://www.strangebrew.ca/beername.php

Arrogant Mikhail Baryshnikov Oud Bruin
Where's my Ewok? Wee Heavy
Brown National Hispanic Heritage Month Porter (Edit: though purely random, using this name probably isn't advised)
Bo and Luke Duke and Ace Ventura's Non-Euclidean Bavarian Dunkelweizen
The Sloth Formerly Known As Buddha's Grunting Old Ale (Edit 2: Also probably insulting to those who believe in reincarnation!)

I don't usually name beers that don't leave my house but if I did, I'd use these!  Or Beefheart.

"Neon Meate dream of a Octofish Pale Ale"

When I decided to name my brewery I went with a Information Technology is driving me crazy theme.  Hence the "Slowly Losing IT Brewery" was born.  I tried to give beers names that fit the theme.  Here are a few (along with, hopefully witty, tag lines:

"Just park'in son(s)!" Pale Ale (Named for my Dad in last days)
Ma's By Paul'er Bock
Alzheimer’s Amber Ale - "I'd love another!  First beer I've had tonight."
A Damn Hoppy Dubble  (ADHD)
Psychotic Psour Mash
Strawberry Savant Pale Ale
October Chill Dunkels (OCD)
Barley Fit For Society Stout
Halfway House Wheat
Loose Screw Stout
The Doctor's Loose Nut (brown) Ale
Electro-Stout Therapy - "This shocks for you!"
Psychopathic Porter
Schitzo Sour Mash "We told you to have a drink with me!"
Hallucination Hefe "Listen to all the pretty flavors"
Bulemic Bitters "'cuz sometimes what goes down, must come up"
Antisocial Amber Ale “Pull me another and leave me alone”
Sympathetic Scottish /70 “If I could still feel anything, I’d know how you feel”
Phobophobic Pilsner – It saves time to be scared of phobias.
Paranoid Pilsner “Is it just me or is this beer watching me?”

I even made sure to get the approval of friend who's son has OCD before I put a label on the tap for Oktoberfest so I wouldn't offend them.

I'll bet you're really offended by BJ's Nutty Brewnette, especially coupled with that chauvinistic logo. :D

You obviously take beer names a lot more serious than I do.

Who's being a bigot?  I was simply making comment on the nature of arguments on the Internet.  ???
