    NWer - Northwesterner - boring but what I came up with at the time for no particular reason.
    My avatar is cut from a Rainier beer commercial from the '70's:

    Long before craft beer, there were two main beers that dominated the Seattle market: Rainier and Olympia with others such as Hams & Miller High Life filling out the market. These commercials were immensely popular in the day.

    I just love listening to music and random numbers. I also love obtaining and drinking of course, Jai Alai from Philadelphia less than a month old. Life is good, and so is Cigar City!

    Just my screen name for everything. I have a fairly common first name and very common last name and it was the only one available 18 years ago when I started doing this internets stuff. I love beer.

    It's pretty self-explanatory; I picked it because I was just getting into beer when I joined the site.

    Just combined two words one day when playing around with my son. We thought it was funny. When I joined the site I probably didn't think I would spend as much time here as I do. The avatar came a few years ago from a fellow BA who put avatars together for BA's without them. I really enjoy Imperial Stouts. I could get by drinking just Bell's, Founders, and Stone beers.

    Named after my 2 beloved "beer dogs", my black lab named Taddy, and a Shep/Rot mix named Newcastle (Nuke).

    2 of my early "crafty" beers (back in those days, they were mostly imports) that I loved were Samuels Smith's Taddy Porter and Newcastle. I actually liked the Oatmeal Stout better than Taddy porter. This was the late 90's

    :stuck_out_tongue:lack of imagination & a little bit resentment to people hiding behind user names. I yam what I yam. It already helped me reconnect with one old homebrewing buddy I was stationed with...

    Favorite beer style has switched to Imp Stout despite what my old BA profile used to say..

    Ma deuce is the nickname for the 50 cal machine gun. I spelled "deuce" wrong for a few years so I just stuck with "duece".

    I was a 50 cal gunner for a convoy escort team in Iraq back in 2011

    My last name is synonymous with "brakes," and I've broken my jaw twice. When I broke my jaw the second time, a friend that took me to the hospital called me "brokejaw brakes," and it stuck. I use "brokejaw" as a nickname.

    cavedave is my attempt to make folks forget that they used to call me by a nickname I hated, Captain Caveman, without discarding its essence. This nickname was gotten when I was the impetus for our group at the time to explore a treasure trove of crawl caves we got a map to in the Shawangunks, and used to explore and party in them.

    Even my friend's 4 year old son calls me cavedave now.

    I always wondered about why deuce was spelled wrong, but I did get the 50 cal reference when I first saw your name.
