Back in 2002 I decided I wanted a name for my brewery that reflected my Nebraska roots.  Go Big Red and Cornhusker is so overused around here that I wanted to avoid any variation at all costs.  Back from 1890 to 1900 the Nebraska football team was known as the Bugeaters.  All the really hard core Nebraska football fans know that but few others do.  Thus the Bugeater Brewing Company was formed.

Oh
Stoney Creek Brewing

Because I live about 2/3rd of a mile away
I thought this name sounded familiar babalu . . . a guy I know is opening a brewery by that name here in WA, he's hoping to open the doors by mid-2012.

This Old Porch Brewing

- greatest song ever written (Robert Earl Keen version of course)

- ever notice how many of the best beer memories happen on an old porch with old friends and those that will become old friends?

Black Flag - I'm originally from Baltimore, and I like the pirate theme Clipper City has going, but I think theirs is a little too campy. So I went with a less tongue-in-cheek interpretation, with old-timey labels and such.

Eventually I'd like to convert the logo into a hanging wood sign.

And yes, I like Rollins and my beer tastes like roach spray.

Having been born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, I totally get the "BugEaters."
I still bleed Husker Red even though I live in Florida.  
Can't wait until Nebraska joins the Big 10 (will it keep the name even though it has more than 10?)
Bugeaters--nice homebrew name.

I spent over a year trying to come up with a name. I had dozens that just didn't work...I finally gave up and called it Cleverly Named Brewing Co.

Off-centered person...seeking off-centered ales.

New at this but have a few brews complete and in the fridge. I call mine Big Cheese Brewing. Its a name I've used for IDs and fantasy football teams for years. Now I just need someone with talent to help with a logo.

I've tried in vain for years to come up with a good name too.  Still coming up dry.   :-[

The name of mine is Louisiana Tung Brewery. "Get Licked By The Tung!" When I bought my house I hung an old stolen street sign on top of my outside cooking shed. That shed became my brewery and that sign is Louisiana Tung Rd.

Here in Central TX all the good geographic and cultural names like Rio Blanco and Alamo are taken so I went with Brewery Hueso Quebrado ...

I can't bring myself to put "fábrica de cervecería" after it. LOL

Simply means Broken Bone...

Was thinking of something along these lines for the label:
