    Alright folks, time for your thinking hats..... We're creating a brew/special release for our upcoming (June) cellar sale (I know, we can't wait either!!). We need a name! The brew is a blend of three different Bourbon Barrels of Barleywine, made to go the long haul as you can imagine! Please nothing offensive (NC ain't easy on the label approval!), the victor shall reap the spoils!! Ready GO!

    How about "Peabody's presents: Kong's Barrel Reserve"?

    [​IMG]
    Of course, name and label art would have to be done carefully....to avoid a nintendo lawsuit
    I'll volunteer to help with that (label art)

    I looked up the etymology of "Peabody" in the OED, and the word comes from the call of a particular bird—the White-Throated Sparrow. (Since the 1850s, The White-Throated Sparrow has sometimes been called "the Peabody" or "the Peabody-bird.") The bird's call is made up of two notes followed by three triple notes supposed to resemble the repetition of the name "Peabody." Most classically, as the 1915 version of The Guide to Nature relates, the bird's song is rendered as: "Sow wheat. Peabody. Peabody. Peabody."

    Each "Peabody" in the bird's call could represent one of the three barrels of barleywine blended to make the beer. So I would just replace "wheat" in the bird's call with something more appropriate for a barleywine, while keeping the structure of the song. For example:

    Sow Malt: Peabody, Peabody, Peabody (or Sow Malt: Peabody's, Peabody's, Peabody's)
    Sow Grain: Peabody, Peabody, Peabody (or Sow Grain: Peabody's, Peabody's, Peabody's)

    Assuming you have control over the label art, it could feature three White-Throated Sparrows, each on top of a barrel.

    I like where you're going with this -- too bad it's not a wheatwine!

    Hilarious Brando... Maybe we should call it, "Brandon's Hipster Mustache Wax"!

    And I don't think there is enough coin in the entire store that is worth your "witty" bantor.... or do I have that reversed!

    Wow, now that's what I'm talking about! I think we have a leader in the race! I'm already visioning the label with three white-throated sparrows nesting in a beard, singing away over some barrels! Now, I just need to figure out how am I going to train some sparrows for a picture;)!
