My daughter and son-in-law are opening a craft beer place in an old warehouse and are looking for a name. They are next to a railway station and will be using steam (as opposed to electricity) to run the brewery. So I am opening it up to you all to come up with some name ideas?

Steam-run. Railway nearby. Brewery.

When the first Steampunk club in Austin was formed, we picked the name of a local decomissioned power plant built during the Edwardian Era. The first club's name was Seaholm Steam and Diesel. There is a local chain of pubs in town called "Waterloo," the original name of this settlement, "Waterloo on the Banks of the Rio Colorado," which we now as the City of Austin. So Waterloo, is the go-to name around these parts for anything trying to evoke a yesteryar atmosphere. Plus what a better name could we ask for besides "Waterloo"? I'm sure there is some local landmark you could use.

I was always going to name any potential hostelry the "Two Fingers Inn" but that may not be suitable for the YL.

Alternatively I was going to have one commemorative room titled "The Les Behan Bar".

The Trainwreck  Tongue Tongue Tongue Tongue
Logged

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Hmm, I know the area. How about Mullum Sidings, given that it is Mullum Ward and the multiple meanings of "sidings" (or sides).

 The xxxx and xxxx names could be appropriate here. Considering the Australian  setting, there  are a number of colourful combinations.  Are you near water?  I don't know enough Aborigine words to advise, they could be useful.

The problem with "Aussie"-sounding names is ... it's in Australia. I suspect that such names would make it sound like it was an overseas interest trying too hard to be fair dinkum.

How about: The Wrong Side of the Tracks Brewing Company.

(A nod to the town of Marree in S.A. (a place close to my heart), have a read of the wiki page if you don't get the reference).
