Worst name for a beer
« on: November 08, 2019, 12:40:51 PM »
I mean, besides this one. :beaver:

Lots of cringey puns and problematic non-PC stuff out there, let's hear the worst.

Everything from Big Beaver Brewing

Wow, the beer names are 99% double entendres...really went all in on that concept. 

Edit: Ope. This homebrewer on Untappd surely takes the cake. :-X :facepalm:

At the risk of being a "party-pooper" one is forced to wonder what manner of lowest common denominator these Big Beaver beers appeal to.

Further, one ought not consider wearing a Big Beaver tee-shirt unless you actually like being aggressively pursued by fat broads.

*gag*

No doubt you’re a svelte catch yourself.


Anyway... I don’t count homebrewers. That big beaver stuff is pretty bad. Honestly, some of sweetwaters older names were pretty bad too.  Donkey Punch, etc.

Although this thread was started as a jokey counterpoint to the “best name for a beer” thread, I certainly didn’t want to dwell on the problematic stuff.

A local brewery’s brown ale was named “Soul Man” which recalled Clown Shoes “Brown Angel” label, though maybe not as offensive. Still, using a reference to POC for a brown ale is remarkably tone deaf, and seems like commercial suicide. (yet another questionable beer name)

I was trying to think of ways to make this work, and the best I could come up with was Jackie's Brown, with a silhouette of Pam Greer on the label.  Still don't think I would print that label :shrug:

Idk, that’s more of a legitimate cultural reference, but then you’re also looking at paying royalties. The whole equating color/style of beer with race is the part that’s just super cringey to me.
 
Imagine a witbier with Damon Wayans in White Chicks on the label, or any Jennifer Aniston film.

Better as in slightly less cringey? The Eris thing is super bad taste if true. Epstein was a total POS.

I can't believe it.  I have told this joke before not long after his death and everyone knew it was a joke.  Now, you are like the third person to think it is plausible.  Plus, I am sure I told you before.

Probably took longer to google if the name was already taken. I swear, some of these new breweries have no clue.

Ooh, they have martinis. Borrowedladder>hey

I’ve been told that this name is an inside joke. The brewers of used to work for a short-lived brewery name Park Slope. The experience wasn’t positive.

Yep, still around, still has that slightly odd minty thing going on.  They used to sell these for $3 a can at concerts at Rev Hall in Troy.  Plowed through a few of them in the day.
My friends say I'm like doing the laundry and forgetting the bleach: I'm not as bright as I could be.

Yep. Park Slope had an odd damn vibe - went there once, before they closed up when the rents went through the roof.  Nice enough looking place, just somehow seemed... off.
