Strange Brew – 12 Strange Beer Names

#1. Arrogant Bastard Ale

Produced by the Stone Brewing Company out of Escondido, California, this 7.2% abv this aggressive ale was actually banned in a few states due to its profane language.

Monty Python Holy Grail Ale

This 4.7% Holy Grail of ale was brewed by the Black Sheep Brewery out of North Yorkshire, England. It was released in 1999, just in time for the 30th anniversary of Monty Python. in 1999.
Ten years later on the 40th anniversary Holy Grail is still going strong. It’s a full-flavoured hoppy golden ale with dry finish – just like their humor.

#3. Buttface Amber Ale

This San Francisco brewing company, Shmaltz Brewing, brews a number of different beers under their He’brew: The Chosen Beer line. Types include Origin Pomegranate Ale, Funky Jewbelation, Messiah Nut Brown Ale, and Genesis Ale. Nothing like a cold refreshing beer with a smooth aftertaste of blasphemy.

#5. Moose Drool – Brown Ale

Moose Drool

Big Sky Brewing out of Missoula, Montana has a few interesting names for their line of beers, with the strangest by far being Moose Drool. Using four different varieties of both malts and hops, this brown ale is surprising easy drinking at 5.1% abv. But if you have too much of it, the Moose isn’t the only thing that is going to be drooling.

#6. Face Plant Winter Ale

Faceplant Winter Ale

The Nelson Brewing Company brews this certified organic winter ale out of British Columbia, Canada. At 6.5% abv, this may be the first beer that can predict your future – after consuming too much of it that is.

Considered a Double IPA, Ruckus Brewing Company’s Hoptimus Prime uses five different hop varieties, and three different types of malts, which results in a very hoppy beer. Now Autobots, roll-out!

Yellow Snow IPA

Your mother always said, ‘Don’t eat yellow snow’, but she never said anything about drinking it. Rogue Ales out of Newport, Oregon brew this IPA that is golden in color and hoppy in flavor.

#9. Moylan’s Kilt Lifter – Scotch Ale

Moylans Kilt Lifter Scotch Ale

At 8.0% abv, this scotch style ale will blow the kilt off even the most robust of beer drinkers. Produced by Moylan Brewing out of Novato, California, they suggest their Kilt Lifter is best enjoyed if you let it first warm slightly in your glass. A beer that strong, I don’t think it will have a choice.

#10. Old Leghumper

Ol' Leg Humper

Akron, Ohio is home to the Thirsty Dog Brewing Company who have quick an extensive selection of beers, 16 to be exact. Although the names range from Irish Setter Red to Barktoberfest (you get the theme), the strangest name bay far is their robust porter, Old Leghumper. Using two types of roasted malts, Old Leghumper is a rich porter with a chocolaty taste.

#11. Pigs Ass Porter – Porter

Harvest Moon Pigs Ass Porter

This little piggy went to the bar, and this little piggy went to a club. This little piggy picked up another little piggy and this little piggy went “wee wee wee” after drinking too much of Harvest Moon Brewing Compnay’s Pigs Ass Porter. With plenty of body, this porter is brewed with four different kinds of malts creating a creamy, smooth, slightly chocolate tasting brew that even Orwell’s Napoleon would enjoy.

#12. Polygamy Porter

Polygamy Porter

The Wasatch Brew Pub in Park City, Utah is responsible for brewing this dark, medium bodied brew with a hint of chocolate and malty flavors. At only 4.0% abv, when it comes to Polygamy Porter why just have one!
