A little late to the gate but got my vote in anyway. Simpler is better IMO, so I went with the first choice. Apparently I'm in the minority but...that's ok. ;)

When you say Meteorwhite, it sounds like you have a lisp.

We decided to hold back the "Meteor" or "Meteorite" moniker(s) for another beer.

I found this write up on wiki about the Hodges meteorite (the one that hit a woman in AL).

I know this is way late but...

Voted #1 because marketing-wise it has the best rhythm and cadence. It is smart, simple and gets the message across in one word. Design-wise, and typographically, it lends itself well to being a balanced design both horizontally and vertically as well as a badge or initials. I could also see it using very high contrast, knockout or reversed whitespace.

#2 sounds like a paint color Bob Ross would use…a little bit of Meteorite White for these happy little clouds that live over here...
