Name My Pub
« on: December 29, 2009, 01:47:05 PM »
OK, I have decided that home brewing is just not enough.  I am in the process of renovating an 1860s building along the Mississippi River in Minnesota and converting it to a brewpub.  I hope to be open by the spring of 2011.  First order of business is a name.  I am looking for ideas.  Reply to this post and give me your best shot.  If I use it, the beers on me (after I open of course).

Don't have to be a jerk about it.  Besides, there is already a Busted Nut bar in Hastings, MN!

Uhhhm - he wasn't being a jerk at all. Relax, dude. It was a joke.

Without knowing anything about you or your interests its hard to suggest something that is meaningful to you.  Having said that, you could go for a British pub style name - The Something & Something (like Fox & Hound or Pig & Thistle) or even simpler like the Stag's Head or the Bristly Boar.

How bout 'Sarah Wipple's Pub'  or 'Whipples'? Cause that is the maiden name of Henry Hasting Sibleys mother.

I dont know. Not much to work with and I just want some free beer.

Dont do the English pub name thing. I hate those places that are trying to be English pubs. Its like being white with dreadlocks. Ja-fakein.

"Tool Shed". Think of the decor you could go with. Also, "Honey! I'm going to the Tool Shed." That was going to be my band in High School...if I had any talent.

Sticking with politics use Jesse THE BODY Ventura. "The Body Shoppe" has a nice ring to it, but I think I've heard that one somewhere. _____'s Riverfront Pub?

Tool shed sounds like a male strip joint. Like where you'd go to see Chippendale dancers or something like that.
Just call the place "Depot" if you want to give every guy out there an excuse to stop in.

Background information:  The building was built in the 1860 in a town called Reads Landing.  It is located at the mouth of the Chippewa river and Lake Pepin.  Location is right on the water with a Burlington Northern rail line about 40' infront of the building.  Area is historic for shipping/logging.  Located between Lake City and Wabasha in SE MN.
