Sometimes you find a beer that has the most awesome name, you buy it just to try, then it turns out crap.

So good or bad, it doesn’t matter, what’s the best name you’ve heard for a beer or brewery?

Also, have you ever seen a label that was also really awesome?

Off the top of my head, I thought Devils Backbone was a pretty cool name for the Virginian brewery (their Eight Point IPA is pretty decent too)

For a label, I really liked Trois Pistoles.

The new Rogue Voodoo Doughnut is a pretty awesome bottle. I like Trois Pistoles too. I think DFH Chateau Jiahu is pretty solid artwork too. That is as far as looks go.

As far as a cool beer name, I like Blaecorn Unidragon by Clown Shoes.

Love the Black Metal and Rigor Mortis labels!
