The name game: Naming an Irish Red Ale

Jack, Jack, bo-back,
Banana-fana fo-fack

I started a new batch of beer tonight. This time it’s an Irish Red Ale. And it’s once again time to ask your help in naming my brew.

If I were to use the Name Game song, would it be:

Ale, ale, bo-bale
Banana-fana fo-fale

My last ale was a fail, so I’m thinking I’ll name this one “Atonement Ale” to atone for my past. 🙂

What do you creative folks think? What other names would go with this theme?

    What’s wrong with leaving it at “Irish Red”?

    Janice, you are so good asking the good questions!

    There’s nothing “wrong” with leaving it Irish Red. But that’s so…easy.

    I just realized that this brew may not “atone” for my last one…What if this doesn’t turn out well?

    Maybe I should call it “Mea Culpa” or something. 🙂
