We're going pro!!!
« on: March 21, 2011, 05:49:58 PM »
Well, my good friend Dave and I have decided to do it... We are going pro!  Problem is, we need some help with the name of the brewery.  Help us out be taking our short zoomerang survey, you might be the person who names our brewery!

Black River Brewery has a nice rhythm to it.

Meet you at the BRB for a BRU... or two!

I've got to go with Black River too.

Suburban is a vehicle
Vanguard is a financial company
New Britain reminds me of Little Britain in Arrested Development, and is too close to New Belgium

Congrats! Here's hoping the name is the biggest obstacle.

Those are high hopes, indeed. The name is tricky but, oh boy, its no where close to the biggest obstacle. It is super important.

Congratulations Tubadog. I have been running a small brewery out of Huntsville, AL for about 6 months now. If you have any questions feel free to PM me and I'll try and help you out. Hopefully you have been saving LOTS of money.  ;)

Pretty sure Vanguard was a drum & bugle corps first.  But either way, I get your point.

Black River Brewery sounds good.  Good luck going pro, it's the dream of many a homebrewer.

Took the survey but have to say Black River has the best ring to it.  Not sure where you are located so it is hard to judge if New Britain would be appropriate, could be if you are going with a geographic identity.

Regardless, I wish you great success.  Like many if us, this is a dream of mine as well.  My hats off to you for going for it!

I think Black River by far sounds best. Good luck with the brewery!

Only concern with Black River would be name conflicts. There was a Black River Brewing in VT, but it appears closed.

If this does become a problem maybe Dark River or Black Water would be good substitutes.

Brown River is also not an option, as it would infringe on the name of my brewery:
