what not to name your brewery

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. ;)

There's a local brewery that is opening (supposedly) here next year and they are going to call it "Salty Nuts".

Mmmmmm ....no thanks!

It's not a popularity contest, it's beer!

Now everytime I brew, I get Flies trying to feast on my sweet wert and if at night under the lights? Sheesh worse.

Speaking of which, I hope there's no FDA limit on sweat that can be introduced pre-boil. I'd be *way* over on this morning's mash.

I've always wondered about Rock Bottom Brewery.

At a lot of their locations, it's a pretty accurate description.

brewers tend to take the whole "blood, sweat and tears" thing too literally

Inside joke;  About 8 years ago we were on a family road trip and the kid was about tired of being in the car so I was telling him about fictitious beers (with ridiculous flavors and additions) that I was planning to make at the fictitious brewery that I was going to open.  After a few "yeah right" comments from the kid he asked, ok so what's the name of your brewery?  Right there in a field next to the hwy was the answer.  A cow standing perpendicular to us, tail stiffly raised in the air with the most impressive jet stream coming from his arse that I've ever seen.  "Pooping Cow! The name of the brewery is Pooping Cow."  Made the kid laugh anyway.
