Best Craft Brewery Name Ideas

If you're of age to enjoy craft brews like me, you probably have been to your fair share of small 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)—and those are all local! The possibilities are endless. What makes a great brewery name?

Enjoy choosing from this list of inspiration. Play around with the sortable lists as well. When choosing a name, think about the theme of your brewery:

  • Is it nature-oriented, trendy, traditional, or funky?
  • What kind of crowd do you want to attract?
  • What is your expertise—what inspired you?
  • Where are you located?
  • What makes your craft brews unique?

        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.

        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.

        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!

        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.
