Good article.
I have never named my beers but maybe I'll start.
At Big Brew day I brought a beer, that my neighbor said "tastes like Shlitz"
So when folks asked "what are you serving I replied, "my neighbor said "it tastes like Shlitz"
It wasn't a big hit until I changed my response and started calling it a Summer Ale.

Agreed, I like bawdy humor.. I'm going to the RenFaire this week for f'sake, but I've just seen a number of crude names that aren't funny and aren't imaginative. And those just annoy me.. if you can make it funny and risque.. go fer it, but then again it seems by the field of names I've seen things like "Three Fingers Deep Tripel" or "Shocker Stout" are names some people like that just make me roll my eyes. (and those are the polite ones)

"Shocker Stout" isn't so bad if it has a picture of this guy on it.

One of the reasons I like brewing brown ales is for the clown-related names.
