Brews with Strange/Odd Names

Discussion in 'Beer Talk' started by acceptmj, Jul 15, 2013.

  1. With all of these new beers out now coming up with a unique name must be proving difficult! What are some of the weirdest names for brews (good or bad) that you have heard or seen?

  5. Jai Alai is a bit odd. (I'm drinking one while surfing the site right now, so it's on my mind)

    It's not OUT THERE like a lot of others, but it'd be like if one was named "Football" or "Curling". Just naming a brew after a sport is a bit odd.
    With that being said, I'd drink the shit out of a brew called "Curling" I suspect it'd be an oatmeal stout.

  6. Synchronized Swimming seems like a great name for a well balanced liquid beverage.

    Vas Deferens from Caldera. No clue why you want to name your beer after a part of the body that deals with semen. And no, I've never had this semen beer either.

    Edit: Also, Horse Piss Beer from Bluegrass Brewing. Horse piss... o_O

    There are a bunch that have the name "Miami Weiss". Unfortunately they style doesn't lend itself to barrel-aged variants such as Crockett and Tubbs.

    They probably stole the name from a review of their beer, haven't seen or heard of a good one from them yet.

    UK are known for short-lived, questionably-named tap handles. Some see it as laughable in a play yard type mentality, others see it as a short road to losing credibility among all but the most juvenile of clientele.
    Seems the US are just entering the game.

  31. They're trying to keep a language from dying. It's pretty "bahl" as they say. What are you some kind of back-dated chuck?

    I love this beer. Have had it at a few festivals.

    AtG also makes one called Sofa King Wheat Arted that is fantastic.

    Edit: BA seems to indicated that the name is Sofa King Wheat, but the bar where i had this listed it as above...

    Instead of a beer I'll give you a brewery, one in my state just opened. Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery. No shit.
     
  37. Not necessarily strange or odd, but I get a kick out of Left Hand's beer names. Subtle as it may be, there is an underlying sexual innuendo to many of their beers. Hell, the name of the brewery itself gives a nod to an old self-gratification trick...as does "The Stranger". They pull it off because it is not too in your face. I was having this conversation with my wife and another couple and we were talking about "Pole Star", which we all just assumed was in reference to a stripper, but the following day, my friend's wife came across the the term in a book she was reading and decided to do some research..."It is a Thoreau reference from Walden Pond about figuring out where you want to be in life and then staying on course to get there. Original meaning is a star located close to the poles to guide sailors and fugitive slaves. And even before that: being really great at getting yourself off .

    Looks like our friend's at Left Hand are not only serious about their masturbation, but also their literature!
