Best Brewery Name Ideas

If you're of age to enjoy craft brews, you probably have been to your fair share of breweries. Between the interior, the vibes, the music, the food, the staff, and most importantly, the craft, a standout name is also key.

Some of my favorite names include Hop Dogma (California), Fat Head's (Portland), Triple Voodoo (San Francisco), Alpha Acid (Belmont), but the name possibilities are endless. The big question is, what makes a great brewery name?

Enjoy choosing from this list of inspiration. When choosing a name, think about the theme of your brewery:

  • Is it trendy, traditional, clever, funny, or funky?
  • What kind of crowd do you want to attract?
  • What is your expertise and what inspired you to start brewing?
  • Where are you located?
  • What makes your craft brews unique?
Atmosphere and a cool vibe keeps customers coming back.

Hi Shelva, maybe CorkCulture or BottleAgain or CorknBottle

Shelva Eck on January 11, 2020:

Hello I am looking for a name for my recycled wine bottles and wine corks

Layne Holmes (author) from Bend, Oregon on April 14, 2019:

It hasn't hit yet! But indeed when I was in Ireland there was much gin to enjoy. I actually brought a bottle back of a beautiful make from County Cork. I wish the gin selection were as ripe back here in the U.S. I've always been a fan but it's slow to take—I image it will take soon.

Liz Westwood from UK on April 13, 2019:

Do you have the craft gin craze as well in the USA? Craft gin distilleries are opening up regularly in the UK and the range of gins has expanded a lot recently.

Layne Holmes (author) from Bend, Oregon on April 13, 2019:

Thanks Liz—I've always been a fan of craft brew culture. One of my favorite spots on the West Coast of the USA is Hop Dogma—their beer names where so incredibly fantastic and creative. Cool to hear about your ambitious friend! I'm also enjoying the cider revival!

Liz Westwood from UK on April 13, 2019:

Craft beers and breweries are the in thing at the moment. We have a friend who is working his way around the beer lists. He records each one he drinks. Trouble is that the market is expanding so quickly I don't think he will ever get to the end of the list. Great research has gone into this article.
