Name that Beer

I got a Mr. Beer Kit for Christmas. I have my 1st batch of beer happily fermenting away.
I'm going to let it sit in the fermenting keg for an extra week to let the flavors develop and lager until the beginning of March. It'a a basic wheat beer, a nice refreshing brew, just right for the Spring heatwaves when temperatures might climb to the 30's!

I know the purist frown on the Mr. Beer but it has gotten good reviews. And I have a life and other stuff to do. After this 1st batch, I have some more complex brews planned, a Monk beer or Bier will be next. The hop shortage is an issue though.

Now I need a name for my beer.

Suggestions are welcome.


*my brother-in-law made some homebrew a couple years ago, he initially name it "Bitch Sisters Brew" after his wife and her sister. The sister liked the name, because she is weirdly proud of her reputation. Wife wasn't soo excited and after threats of divorce, he withdrew the name. I think it's a funny story, just thought I'd share.

You could call it "Bitches Brew" and tell everyone you named it after the Miles Davis album.

My suggestion: Be Delicious.

I think some herbal inhalents are required to get through that song...I'd rather stay away from the "bitch" thing....bitches ruin my mood.

Long Live the BIKE LEGS! Haha

Be Delicious, that's my favorite perfume!

"Steve."

Steve...very original
I think I prefer something with a tad more "zing" than Steve has.

Snakebite said...

"Steven" then.

I remember you mentioning that perfume once in your blog and thought the name was a nice coincidence.
Maybe just go the generic route and call it "beer".
Has a nice ring to it . . . .

Ohh Steven...the Walmart McDonalds "not weird" gigalo-wannabe who was just trying to be nice to an old lady and gets threatened with gun violence, takes off and leaves a teenage cashier cowering on the floor in fear. I think I like Steve better.

Steve...
