    Beard Beer. Both for the name and the intrigue of drinking a beer made from yeast from some dude's gnarly beard.

    With why are you buying beer based solely on the name, rather than the contents?

    It's pretty rare I at least don't know something about the beer, especially with perusing this site so much, but there are some where the name was a heavy influence on buying it.

    Like Perrin Brewery's "Kill 'Em All" & "With Kindness", excellent marketing, how could I not get them both? I also had to blend them together as well, you know, just to see.

    I already love Mikkeller products, but the "To _____, From _____" kinda got me, just cause I thought it was a neat gifting idea, even though I drank it for myself with no regrets.

    Oddside Ales, "Beautiful Disaster". Arcadia "Cereal Killer". Southern Tier's "Krampus" during Christmas time of course. Good ol' Founders "Dirty Bastard" got me back in the day before Founders was huge.

    667 Neighbor Of The Beast. Good beer but I wish they would quit making it so they could spend that time and space making Yellow Rose more available.

    Mikkeller 1,000, because I really thought it was 1,000 IBU. I liked the beer, but there are loads of brews way more bitter, and Mikkeller's blurb never claims the beer really is 1,000 IBU.
