So ... one of my favorite homebrew podcasts is the The Brülosophy Podcast.
One of their recent episodes ... Episode 232 | exBEERience: Naming Beers ... got me thinking about how I go about naming beers.
Apparently, not all homebrewers name all their beers, but I certainly do. Some of these names only make sense to me, but they all have at least some thought put them.
So ... what are some of the themes in my beer names?
Lots of my beers are named for my favorite sports teams ... lead, of course, by the Chicago Blackhawks.
Blackhawk Black Ale is pretty obvious. Tommy Hawk APA is named after the Blackhawks' mascot. Chelsea Dagger Pre-Prohibition Lager celebrates the Blackhawks with the song that plays after each of their goals.
I even named a beer based on my hatred of a football team: Pats Disliker New England Pale Ale.
