I've named my last IIPA 'Hip-HOP-opotamus'.
That beer tasted like crap!
I called my hefeweizen "El Jefe", which is the boss in spanish. Pretty simple
I brewed a doppelbock and it was one of the worst brew days I'd ever had. Several boilovers, a stuck mash, equipment problems, etc. So I named it Exasperator.
company furloughed us for a month several years back, and I worked on my IPA recipes.
Eventually "Furloughed Engineer - pale, bitter, full of alcohol" was born.
comet/cascade honey IPA.. C&C IPA factory (everybody dance now)
Funky barn juice - sour brown ale w/ cherrys.
It's already been done - http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/25317/68087
Great name, dreadfully sweet and malty IIPA.
Close enough - http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/877/46333

I named my dry, West Coast IIPA, "Golden Hopportunity".
Like All tan everything?
It's a reference to the Jay-Z saying and the NZ national rugby team.
Just made a Rye IPA I plan to name "Mustache Rye'd"
Pretty sure that's been done.
Haha, prove it! I brewed named and brewed this beer 5 years ago this month. I saw a few fellow homebrewer's on hopville with the same name, but that's about it.
Matrimonial Milk Stout (Imp. Milk Stout for my Wedding)
Velarde's Flight (APA brewed for BA Nosignsofpain's birthday w/ Falconer's Flight hops)

Hogg's Wine (A massively hopped 11.5% wheatwine brewed for my Dad)

F*ck You H***n (A hoppy saison brewed from ingredients that were supposed to used to brew a batch with a local brewery that completely flaked on us, then blew off our COC judging for a collaboration beer)
Ryebosome 80s, I'd like to know if anyone can figure out why I named my beer that.
80 S is the sedimentation coefficient in svedberg units that correlate to the particles mobility in differential ultra centrifugation. 80S is the size of eukaryotic ribosomes. The Rye part is due to the presence of rye? Am I close at all here?!
Sorry, I'm a Caltech Ph.D. student and dork.
Haha. Flight of the Conchords fan?
Meh. A bit, I suppose.
That is where I got the name, though. I had planned for a variant called 'Rhyme-Noceros', but that beer turned out so bad that I scrapped all of it.
All named after Mike Tyson Punch-Out guys now!
There is a brewery in Katy, Tx called no "label brewery" that sells an El Jefe Hefeweizen. Yall must think alike !
Not witty .. but my wife has two ( we ) wiener dogs and she loves them .. My latest label creation.
A local Seattle brewery, Hale's, also has an El Jefe. Badass Colonel Sanders-lookin' dude on the label, too
My homebrews sometimes end up with clever names, although they're almost always only clever to me and not to anyone else. My personal favorite of mine is a sorghum beer I did called the Post-Gluten Prometheus -- it's a take off of the name of an X-Files episode.
80s was for the eukaryotic ribosome of the yeast, I'm glad you got that. But it was also for the beer being roughly 80 ibus. And the ryebosome play on words was obviously due to the rye in the beer, it was a double ipa too. I was happy with that name, I was hoping that other people would appreciate it and not just me. Good work.
Ahh... that was slick! Didn't even cross my mind.
Ha ok. Jay Z is on all tan everything too.

I'm brewing a steam beer with New Zealand hops this weekend. Planning on calling it "Zealand Steamer".
The "Albert Haynesworth Conditioning Test" Imperial Oatmeal Stout
My buddy, a Washington Redskins fan, came up to visit me the same weekend that the Redskins were putting their newly acquired defensive end through a barage of conditioning tests that he kept failing. As a life-long New York Giants fan, I mocked this to no end. Curious about how difficult the tests were, we tried one. While hard, we both pulled it off. Later that day I brewed an Oatmeal Stout with a big ol' grain bill. Hence, the ridiculous name.
