Random Anonymous Blackmail: Make your beer better then you won't have to rely on clever names.


As a homebrewer I can honestly say - piss off!!  Some of the fun of making good beer is drinking it and coming up with goofy names for the next batch.  As most of the craft brewing guys come from a homebrew background this is a traditional thing.

As a homebrewer for over fifteen years I very rarely attach a unique name to a beer.  I have about a half dozen recipes that I've developed and tweaked.  Only one of them was given a unique name, and that was done by someone who felt it needed it for whatever reason.  To me it's still "my lager" and I still feel it's in the process of development despite the fact that I brew it about four to six times a year and have been doing so for about eight years now.

My beers don't need a witty name.  They're good enough to stand on their own.

They completely missed the point with Polygamy Porter. That stuff is brewed by one of the few breweries in Utah.... you do the math.

"Old Leg Humper" sounds harmless and fun. I think a few old girlfriends may have called me that.

Plus it's a porter. Can we have a beer snob thread?

Good beer and clever names are mutually exclusive?

The list includes Polygamy Porter, then complains about the low alcohol.  It's brewed in Utah, and is low alcohol to comply with the stupid laws there.  I think that's part of the reason for the name.

Same here.  If I do add a label, I'll write down my recipe number, batch number and brew date, but that's it.

They've since changed the name to The Congo Pale Ale.  I get what you're saying, but it looks to me like they were brewing in the style of what Belgian beer would have tasted like if regionally brewed in the Belgian Congo.  They have another seasonal beer called The Namibian Pale Ale.  They call it a "what if" beer.  Now whether it was their intention to be taboo or not, I don't know.  But there may be more to it than what is shown on the label.

Good to know.  I don't think anybody would consider releasing a Bavarian style pilsner and naming it Dachau Pils.  I think the original Belgian Congo name was the result of simple ignorance.

Hey buddy, I've had a lot of beers, and Belgian Congo Pale Ale wins my vote hands down!

Brewing your own lager is worse than racism.

What's wrong with lager?  Some of my favorite beers are lagers.

I spent most of the a week recently navigating Utah liquor laws, and actually craft brewers can do high ABV beers, had several double IPAs and a mix of other styles.  However, stores only sell low weight beers, you have to either go to a State Liquor Store (between 11 and 7) to buy the heavy stuff warm, or oddly, go directly to the craft brewer and get it to go with no limits (well maybe tops out at 12%) and cold.

Also, since the State stores have no refrigeration...you will find no other out of state microbrews (or very few).  The other oddity I noticed is everything is priced by the bottle, buy a six, it is six times a bottle price.  The in-state breweries love it though...very little competition and premium beer prices.
