Maybe you were thinking of the Bluesman formerly known as Prince?

Nice logo, Tony.  That bottle label looks better than most commercial craft beers.

Thanks gordon, I appreciate that!

Sticking with the Jersey Shore theme here are some of the beer names I came up with:

Seaside Stout
Toms River Red Ale
Boardwalk Brown Ale
Grandpa Louie's Cream Ale (named after my grandfather who loved genesee)
Jersey Devil IPA
Arrogant Ale
Fist Pump Porter
Pine Barrens Porter
Lone Pumpkin Ale
Nor'easter Winter Stout
Bleach Blonde Ale
Eagle Point Pilsner
Kiss O' Death (something my grandfather used to say)
Lighthouse Lager
Duck Dive Dunkel

Just to name a few...

No 'Snooki Black & Fake Orange Tan'?

No 'The Situation Stout'? 

No 'JWOWWit'? 

;)  lol  Sorry couldn't resist.  Very nice logo though.  Good work.

Now, that's funny.  Fake orange tan.  If you were going with that theme, I'd add "Your 15 minutes are up ale" and "Where the f*** is the remote wheat".

If you're going Jersey, how about Soprano's themed beers?

I don't name my beers.  It doesn't do any good when you call them anyway.  Must be like cats.

hehe I did name one Fist Pump Porter, and had other ideas like Snooki's Pumpkin Ale but I figured if i ever wanted to go commericial the last thing i would want is to be sued and have to give these people even more money than they rightly deserve.

I do like the sopranos idea but i'd probably stay away from it for the same legal reasons, you never know when there is a lawyer hiding under a rock near you...

I can go one further on the crazy train of naming beers. Not only do I name them, but since i'm a graphics guy I feel compelled to make a logo for them too...yeah, my crazy goes deep buddy.

So here's one of the logos for my unofficial brewery and beers:



I even recreated the logo for my new mash tun cooler once I remove the coleman sticker on the side:

Nice, I used to work up in Middletown at The Courier newspaper when i first started out in graphics. Not sure if they still use it but I designed the logo on the front page, i think back in like 1992 or 93.

A cool piece of trivia (to me anyway) is that you can see the logo in Kevin Smith's Clerks, they filmed it in the area and the newspaper is in one of the scenes. Also, one of the girls that worked with me was dating Kevin Smith at the time and she got to be in a few scenes of Chasing Amy. She brought him by for lunch one day, kinda cool to meet him before he was well known.

You met him after Clerks, but before he was well known? How is that possible?  :-\ ;D

My misunderstanding.  The way you phrased it I thought she was dating him while filming Chasing Amy. ;)

I only name the beers I make most often. Look out Stout, Pop Pops Porter, Summer Rest, ( a cap ) Summers Breeze ( a Boheam Pilsner ) Mama Bears Irish Red, Monkey Fist APA The others just get called by style unless it becomes a house brew than it gets a name. Think it just adds to the fun of making beer and makes it easy to log the recipe . All the names have a reason, for instance when I was bottling an Imperial Stout I asked the wife for help and she dumped a bunch of it on my head by mistake.    :P
