Okay everybody. You obviously enjoy naming beers. Good thing, because we’re in another pickle… Our Weissguy Hefeweizen started out as a pretty traditional Bavarian-style wheat beer, complete with the ubiquitous orange peel and coriander. But after drinking more of the the wheat beers and determining where this beer fits into our lineup, we decided to migrate it to a Belgian wit. We were way more successful than I thought we would be, and this is now one of my favorites of the beers we brew.
Herein lies the trouble. We can’t use the 1930s gangster name because “weiss” is too German. We need something more “witty” (a wit pun ? ZING!). And before we start thinking of a name, we need a good character to base it around. Here’s a list of the characters we’re using for other beers:
- Base Jumper
We need something that either connotes the medieval origins of the beer (maybe a knight?) or the beer’s name (clown = wit, or maybe that’s a stretch). So before we name it, we need a character to guide our thinking. I should also add that we’re experimenting with adding ginger to this beer, though that hasn’t been finalized yet.
