Help name some barrels
« on: May 16, 2014, 05:19:46 AM »
I have four cabernet bbls I am trying to name. The barrels hold a beer I brew once a year called "Frankenhammer" that I brew to be released around Halloween. This batch in Cabernet lbs I plan on releasing on draft only. Some have sour cultures, others have Brett and some blended. One I am planning being a solera. I am going to blend some of the bbls together and age on sour cherries and call it "Bride of Frankenhammer"... fun, right?

Anyway, I like the name my bbls. Last time I names them Greek goddess names (Helena, Aphrodite, Athena, Persephone). This time I am looking for names from monster or horror movies. But I am not familiar with the genera. "Carrie" is one I came up with. "Carmilla" is one I found, apparently some classic female vampire.

Or maybe some other theme? I'm not sure. If anyone has some names they can pop around I would appreciate it. If they are really good I might even send out a few bottles.

Carrie Nation, the temperance crusader was quite a demon IMO. Also, Medusa.

When my wife owned an animation company, that's how they named the servers.

With four of them, it's tempting to name them pestilence, war, famine, and death.
