    What's the best name you've ever seen adorning the pumps in a real ale pub?

    My personal favourite has to be "Piddle-in-the-hole" from the Wyre Piddle Brewery.

    It has to be "Horizontal" it had a cartoon of a man laid flat on his back on the pump badge.

    Mine's got to be 'Workie Ticket' from the mordue brewery, which is geordie (I think) for trouble maker. It's gorgeous, but it causes a little trouble the morning after! :hammer

    The pub I used to work in had some beauties, they always had different guest ales in each week,

    "Batley Bog water" the pump badge was a toilet with an actual pull chain!
    "Pendle Witches Brew"
    "Bazza's Brain Basher"
    and there was a little brewery in Batley that did special ales (They did the bog water one) that produced one at Christmas called "Christmas Pudding"...it actually did taste of Christmas Pud with Sherry in it, but was surprisingly nice.
    Oh,there was "Banana Beer" aswell (a bit of an aquired taste it has to be said!!)

    Weird Beer names.... Seem to have a few in my local

    Leg Over (be very careful ordering this one)
    Two Pints (not a weird name, but try working out how many pints you need when your in a round...)
    Stud
    Stallion (generally next to the stud...)

    Marston's once followed up the success of their strong ale Owd Roger with two even stronger bottled beers. The intermediate one was called Roger's Rocket Fuel, while the strongest was called Roger and Out.

    In The Porter House in Dublin, one can partake of the excellently named "Brain-Bursta!", or the equally useful "Queen Maedbh's Red"

    Quite what the effects of a drop called "waggle dance" would be I'm not too sure. :lol:

    "Baz's Bonce Blower" which was credited as being the strongest beer in the UK. It's brewed by a small brewery in Somerby, Leicestershire. I once had the "pleasure" of a night on this stuff in the pub attached to the brewery. You really didn't want to be in my head the next morning :hammer

    Two of my favorites (from Ohio) Are:
    Burning River Pale Ale (Named after the famous fire along the Cuyhoga in 1969) & Thirsty Dog Old Leghumper (Yes, the picture on the bottle IS just what you might think)

    I like to ask for a Blonde - the latest brew from the fabulous Daleside Brewery in Harrogate

    http://www.dalesidebrewery.com/

    "I'd like two blondes and a bag of salt and vinegar crisps please..."

    These are some of my favorite names. Sad to say I havnt tried all of them.

    Skull Splitter from the Orkney Islands
    Monkey Knife Fight from something like the Nodding Head Brewery in America
    Blithering Idiot Barley Wine from America
    and Moose Drool again from America.

    this may get bleeped out but its a real beer. Arrogant Ba Stard Ale. ( Go to arrogant b'stard . dot com to see)

    When my old band got promoted from a section (cant remember which 2nd or 1st) the local ale house where we supped, the mighty 'Riverhead' in Marsden, Phil the landlord brewed us his Bandsmans Bitter. Top notch ale!

    I had a bottle of Banana Bread beer yesterday, bought it from ASDA. It wasn't too bad, but you're right it is an aquired taste!

    I had a beer at a festival earlier this year called "Weapon of Mass Destruction" which was about 9% and tasted like treacle, it certainly did what it said on the tin!

    Does wonders for your playing though! There was also "Pooh Beer" - good name, slightly disappointing spelling, didn't do what it said on the tin! :wink:

    There used to be a pub in Portsmouth which was an old police station and run by two retired policemen.
    They used to make their own beers on the premises and they had names like "Crimin-ale" and "Truncheon beer!
