I've recently become interested in the craft of homebrew. I've picked up a single stage brew kit and will begin the process of fermenting my first batch of homebrew next week. Most likely it will be an Imperial Stout or some sort of brown or black ale, depending on what kind of ingredients I can find locally.

I'm drafting (or draughting, if you will) the assistance of The Pit in naming my creation. Here are a few particulars/ground rules:

1) No use of the word "bastard." There are already 2 beers called "Arrogant Bastard" and "Double Bastard" and a vineyard called "Fat Bastard." "Bastard" is overplayed.

2) Nothing overtly sexual, disgusting, raunchy, etc. For example, "Cum Guzzler Ale" is not acceptable. You can be playful, coy, and suggestive, but not blatant.

3) It will be an ale of some variety, and definitely dark, as dark and black ales are my beverages of choice.

4) If you can't think of your own, support a previously mentioned name. If I get enough good suggestions, I'm willing to make another thread with a poll so that voting may take place.

I would offer the winner free beer, but there are several obvious problems with that.

Incorporate the Pit in the name somewhere. Pits are dark, and it would please the monkeys.

Also to build on this, there's always the word play on "Beer Stein". Which you might like.

DUDE, don't EVER say that to a cc, he might ban you just for the heck of it.

I'd call it "Dark Delirium", so people know they have to drink lots of it.

EDIT:

Steingebräu (An amateur translation of "Stonebrew")


A perfect translation, to be honest.

^ lol wut? How does that name suggest they need to drink lots of it?

To me, it suggests that a little will knock you on your ass.
