    * Dead Elephant
    * Hops & Robbers
    * Mad Tom IPA
    * Twice as Mad Tom IPA
    * Ransack the Universe

    Likely more I cannot even think of right now. I'll always buy 1 or 2 loose ones and if they are a winner then I will stock them at home. I love variety. Cheers.

    Christmas Eve in a New York City Hotel Room, that name just seemed too random to pass.

    And the other day at a local brewery, they had a wit called "There's Always Money in the Banana Stand". Couldn't pass up the arrested development reference.

    "Black Tongue" DIPA cause well, Mastodon :grinning:

    Alesmith "Evil Dead Red" cause of The Evil Dead.

    3Floyds "Amber Smashed Face" cause Cannibal Corpse and the label is kick ass like most 3floyds.

    Acoustic Ales "Run For The Hills" IPA

    And a ton others.

    I buy a lot of beers based on labels cause I take my old bomber bottles, cut them with a glass cutter and make cups or candles out of them for holiday gifts.

    The first time I ever tried any beer from Stone, it was because of the winged demon on the label and the attitude conveyed by the name of the beer and the description - "Arrogant Bastard," and "you can't handle this beer...," or something to that effect. Had to try.

    In recent years, I have bought beers based on names like Ballantine XXX Ale, McSorley's Ale, Rainier Ale, Lord Chesterfield Ale, Genesee 12 Horse Ale, Stegmaier Porter (to name a few) that were nothing like the beers sold under those brand names 30-40 years ago. :grinning:

    Uncle Jacob's Stout, because I love BB stouts and I too am an Uncle Jacob, so I splurged in the $12 (!) taster at a beer fest and it was one of the best beer decisions of my life and is now my personal favorite beer.
