Most Stupid Beer Name?

Fri Apr 28, 2006 2:55 am

American microbreweries give their beers stupid, annoying, cutesy names. The worst offender I've found so far is Junk in da Trunkle Dunkle from the Pizza Port Brewery in California.

What's the most stupid beer name you've seen?

I actually heard about a beer with the name "frothy foamy" in the title. It was pretty funny. I forget where the guy said. He is a teacher so I'll ask him after school.

There is a microbrew I have seen for sale called "Moose Drool"...sort of nasty sounding. I don't drink it because I'm not a huge fan of Microbrews (except Sierra Nevada products, they are awesome), and the name is a huge turnoff as well, but I hear it gets good reviews.

a brewer friend of mine recently received a letter stating that a phrase had been made available to him (and other brewers i'm assuming) to use for a beer's name. the phrase was "Pull My Finger".

Best selling doesn't mean "best tasting."

Kaiser. It is (or used to be, they probably discontinued the brand) a non-alcoholic beer. I tried it only once, when I was doing a tour of the brewery (which is also a state monopoly and the only one which can re-distribute brands such as Heineken), and it tasted like crap.

I would agree on Budweiser (especially since there is another Budweiser around, which really IS a good beer), but my all time favourite for the worst beer is "Krone Pils" (crown pils). Crown suggests a quality beer, but Krone Pils is probably worse than drinking the water of a Dixie Toilet. It is awful.

As long as we're talking about weird names for beer one of the microbreweries in Cedar Rapids whipped up what they called "Hanging Chad ale" to commemorate the election that Al Gore won....it was said to have oatmeal swimming around in it to symbolize the chads and it was kind of murky so you couldn'e see what was going on inside it.

I'm surprised that it hasn't been pointed out that far from being stupid, Budweiser is actually the English name for it's Czech town of its origin, Ceske Budejovice.

If you mean the Anheuser Bush, which is sold as Budweiser in the US, then I agree (it is not allowed to sell it under this name in Europe). But if you mean the real Budweiser which comes from the Czech City Budweis then I have to say that this beer is far better than any I ever got in Scotland.

Axle, I care not what wikipedia has to say. It is not primary source material.
But let's suppose it's correct-which I do not doubt.

Who fucking cares except you and about three other guys in Greenland? The name was stolen, allright? Get over it.

The thread's about stupid names for beer, NOT

Stolen names for beer OR
Beer that you think is better than other beer.

My American pride has nothing to do with this. Don't make it into something it's not-just stay on task, for heaven's sake.

What it DOES have to do with is you and your pal making this thread a vehicle for your constant axe grinding. Which is why you shouldn't drink the water where you live anymore, because it gave you ADHD.

Take some Ritalin, mellow out, and lookie lookie. There's a thread I thoughtfully started for you guys...Remember? It's World's Lousiest Tasting Beer or something like that....Remember? Stay on task, now, fella.

You and your pals can roll in the mud as much as you care to there. Knock yourselves out.

Thanks Chris,

I've gotta say, I'm an Abbey Tripel / Abt fan, but Ruination and Oaked Bastard are great, and of course Speedway is probably one of the top five beers in the world. As for Victory, I've gotta love Old Horizontal and Storm King. Not a huge Unibroue fan, but I just uncorked a La Terrible last night and it was just as good as great port.
