Stout's Registered Name?

We are still trying to come up with a registerd name for Stout.

My favorite? Raconteur's Stout at the Devil!

Although it fits, we're not sure Vivian is going to go for it...  :)

John also came up with Raconteur's I'm a Little Tea Pot

I looked up different types of hops and came up with Cluster Fuggles  :)

Our other ideas so far have went along with the beer theme:
  • There are imperial stouts, coffee stouts, oatmeal stouts, chocolate stouts, milk stouts (sweet or cream stouts), irish stouts, double stouts... There's even oyster stouts. Ick.
  • From Wikipedia: "Stouts were traditionally the generic term for the strongest or stoutest porters"   :)   Also "the history and development of stout and porter are intertwined." And "originally, the adjective stout meant 'proud' or 'brave'."
  • Some key words describing stouts: Roasted malts, roasted barleys, dark, strong, toasted, robust, rich, aroma, barrel aged, nutty, toffee, mocha, caramel, full-bodied, heavy, burnt, bittersweet, etc.
  • Some actual stout beers: Breakfast Coffee Stout, Kentucky Breakfast Stout, Coffee & Cream Stout, Double Chocolate Stout (John loves to make beer floats with this!), Imperial Brown Stout, Black & Brew Coffee Stout, Atomic Espresso Stout, Black Ops Stout, Black Angel Stout, Bourbon County Brand Stout, Old Rasputin Imperial Stout, Ten Fiddy Imperial Stout, Blackout Stout, Bourbon Imperial Stout, Black Cauldron Imperial Stout, Dolomite Stout, San Quentin's Breakout Stout, Steel Toe Stout, Campfire Coffee Stout, Dark Hops, Iditarod Imperial Stout, Thundermuck Stout, Winter Warlock Oatmeal Stout, Jackass Oatmeal Stout, Chicory Stout
  • John calls his home brewery "Stickman"
  • The Welsh word for beer is cwrw (pronounced "curu")
But we could also include a Kentucky theme in the beer name. Or a sheep / herding theme. There's not much for agility themes. Maybe a Buckeye / Ohio State theme?

Or how about some theme with beer that also incorporates his parents: Ziva (Raconteur We'll Always Have Paris) and Chase (C-Myste Baledwr Pursuit of Happiness).

Any ideas?


  1. I've got to say I'm a Little Teapot is really cute! It's so clever! Short and Stout sure describes our little friends, as well as many of the words used to define Stout like: Brave, Bold, Determined, Obstinate (that's for sure!).....But of course it does go away from the Brew Brothers idea....

    Or in keeping with Chase's registered name Pursuit of Happiness....
    "Raconteur's I Could Really Use A Beer"

    Anyhoo..... :-)

  2. Taryn wins -- I LOVE "Raconteur I Could Really Use a Beer" or how about "Raconteur Bottoms Up" -- which might be an agility themed name or "Raconteur A Toast for the Ages". Of the names you listed, "Raconteur Ten Fiddy Imperial Stout" just tickles my fancy. If Vivian reads these, she may think we are all crazy.

  3. Okay, I'm jumping into this discussion. I personally love the name "Raconteur Flying Dog Brewery." They brew Guinnes/Stout beer. Just think how great that would look for an agility dog!

  4. I love Raconteur Flying Dog Brewery. So great for agility. Not so great for herding But, hey, his daddy is Chase. Definitely not the best herding name

  5. How about Raconteur It's Five O'Clock Somewhere"?

  6. Raconteur's Beer for my Corgi(s) (Like Toby Keith's "Beer for my Horses")
    Raconteur's Stout by Stickman
    Raconteur's Flying Stout (to play off the Flying Dog Brewery name)
    Raconteur's Stout Buckeye
    Raconteur's Brewgrass Stout

  7. "Raconteur Mull of Kintyre"
    Mull of Kintyre is a Paul McCartney song

  8. Raconteur Drangonstooth? Dragonstooth Stout is an imperial oatmeal stout described as "Pours a deep, midnight black with a light tan head. Smells of coffee and dark chocolate and the mouthfeel is velvety smooth with flavors of roasted malts, oatmeal and warm bread. Dragonstooth is a very drinkable stout – satisfying but not heavy."
