Eye Patch Ale… coming soon

Posted

You guys responded in spades when we asked for a new pirate name for our Swashchuckler IPA. Frankly, Jeff didn’t think you were smart enough to come up with any good ideas. One idea quickly rose above the rest:

Eye Patch Ale

A subtle nod to the IPA (Eye… P… A.), the Eye Patch was coined by Seth over at Mostly Muppet, an esteemed reader who, sadly, hasn’t even tried our IPA. Seth has verbally agreed not to sue our pants off for using his handiwork. We are furiously working on a new label. (The Olympics have gotten in the way.)

AAAAAARGH!

  1. Jonathan is correct on three counts:

    1) I have never had a single drop of Monday Night Brewery beer
    2) I contributed the name Eye Patch Ale
    3) My legal rights extend to suing shirts, footwear and hats, but not pants. Never pants.

    ;-)

  2. An old pirate joke to go with the new name:

    A Pirate with a peg leg, a hook and an eye patch walks into a bar. The bartender recognizes the pirate and says, “Well, it’s been a long time since I’ve seen the likes of you in here. How did you get the wooden leg?” The pirate replies, “Well, me ship got attacked and a cannon blew me leg off.” The bartender then asks, “And how about the hook?” To which the pirate replies, “Me hand was cut off in a sword fight.” “Alright then,” says the bartender, “How did you get the eye patch?” The pirate sighs and says, “A seagull pooped in me eye.” The bartender gives him a confused look, and the pirate responds, “It was me first day with the hook.”
