I've always wanted to brew a steam beer, and due to how close I used to live to Cleveland, call it "Cleveland Steamer".  ;D

So what are some of the worst brewery names (real or imagined) you can think of.  I've got one . . .


Fluke Brewing Company.  If your beer tastes good, it's a Fluke. ;)

I have aunts, uncles, and cousins who are all Flukes.  ;)

Every time I read this thread all I can visualize is the parasite called a fluke.  maybe that's another name not to use "The Parasitic Brewery".

I've always pondered why many bars, pubs, clubs, etc. like to have few or no windows and near-pitch black atmospheres, in some crazy attempt either to create mood lighting or to disguise how fricking dirty their bars and bar flies are.  Conversely, I have a different idea.  If I ever have a brewpub, I always figured I'd name it the "Well Lit Brewing Company" and have frickin white walls and ceiling, perfectly cleansed stainless steel bar and bar stools, and 300 watt bulbs lighting up the whole place.  How's that for awesome.  Tag line might be something along the lines of, "Don't just wallow in the shadows.  Get Well Lit."

I dunno, Dave. Dark bars are easier for me to get laid in.

If it wasn't for the excessive alcohol and dark lighting, I'd have probably never picked up any women in a bar. What fun would that have been?
