Can you give a ínameí to your beer, instead of a ísentenceí, and in some cases a run-on sentence?

Thankssssss

LOL. Agreed. But the more breweries and beers that are produced the harder it will be to come up with a catchy name.

So you arenít particularly fond of names like

"McGuires Iíll Have What the Gentleman on the Floor is Having Barley Wine"

or

"Evil Twin Christmas Eve at a New York city hotel room"

Haha all joking aside I agree.

LOL. It seems like some of the breweries put the beer description as the beer name these days, instead of just naming a beer w/ one or two words and just describing what that beer is (what barrel aged, etc etc) in the description section of the beer. There are plenty of words in the English language that can still be used to name a beer w/ a name or two, instead of some sentence.

I agree. All those words - thatís what the description is for. Plus, it would give us less of this ISO: BCBCBCBWBBWBBW nonsense.

I agree, even for special cask stuff that has like a dozen added ingredients, just name it something else.

For instance, Pizza Portís Dusk til Dawn coffee imperial porter with coconut is called "Second Breakfast". Most places would just call is coconut dusk til dawn.

Itís easy, makes it more fun too.

And I think some of the breweries should ease off on the philosophical paragraphs and words from the wise on the labels. Just tell me maybe the process used to make the beer and a bottling date, we donít need wise words from Socrates or something your grandpa said on your family farm 30 years ago.
:) Ok maybe Iím pushing w/ this one, but sometimes less is more.

Anything is better than brewery or hop name + style.

How can you say that?!

I dig these names, they serve like a new dimension to this growing beer madness!
But for each itís own.

*sips from his Kaapse Bea* (talking about short names)...

Makes for better acronyms, something we definitely need more of.

Iíll have a beer I can drink form a abottle and a glass, one that suits me and tastes good, one that makes some people mad because itís not good enough or expensive enough and one that gets me high with regards after I have not spent too much money.

What was the question?
