I realize that they are a first wash, but still stand by my assertion that they are all a little to "cutesy", which would make me not recognize it as a beer company.
I completely agree. If you're going to have a non-relevant logo, it needs to have a good story, or be a really good logo. Left Hand is a good example of a distinct, easily-identified logo that's not brewery-related but has a story.
Apple logo has a "byte" out of it, Twitter has a little bird, etc. I could maybe see "Big Bug" being a name for an all-wild fermentation brewery. But it's kind of a terrible name and I'd change it before you sink a lot of money/effort into the brand.
I think the name of the brewery itself is a problem. It's probably the worst name I've heard for a brewery, beating out my previous worst "DC Brau Brewing Company." At least that name is relevant to the place and product, though it's also sort of gibberish.
