We say goodbye to the Swashchuckler IPA

Aug 7, 2008   //   by Jonathan   //   Beer names, Blog  //  16 Comments

It is with a heavy heart that we retire the name “Swashchuckler.” We love the beer so much, but the name is just too hard to pronounce. Joel has trouble with “vowels,” but this has no bearing on the matter.

And so we open it up to you, dear readers, to provide us with a better name. We only ask that it remain pirate-themed, as pirates are the badass scourge of the high seas. Unfortunately Pegleg is already taken. In the 3 minutes of brainstorming we’ve conducted, our best idea is Plankwalker IPA. Swashbuckler is our fallback.

But surely you guys have something even better and more… pirately?

    I like Matt’s idea with Flying Duchman IPA. The tagline for it can be “What’s really in Davy Jones’ Locker!”

    I say, The Flying Spaghetti Monster IPA

    For the following reasons:

    According to the Pastafarian belief system, pirates are “absolute divine beings” and the original Pastafarians. The argument that “global warming, earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters are a direct effect of the shrinking numbers of pirates since the 1800s. The Pastafarian belief of heaven stresses that it contains beer volcanoes and a stripper factory.

    Don’t believe me google Flying Spaghetti Monster!
