Name that Beer!

Name that Beer!

*Note - due to popular demand, we have changed the options available and reset the vote counter. So get voting. The beer will be going on tap at BrewDog Aberdeen tonight and the name with the most votes as of 7pm will be going straight from blog onto the Aberdeen draft chalkboard!

We have brewed a new limited edition beer, for our BrewDog bars and also for our online shop. The beer is a 7.8% Imperial Red Ale. Boasting 80 IBU, it is hopped with huge amounts of Chinook and Centennial in the kettle before being massively dry hopped with only Chinook, twice.  Think of it as 5am Saint’s evil, bitter big brother. We also wanted to showcase Chinook and felt an Imperial Red Ale was the best stage for this awesome hop to really shine.

To make all this even better, we are going to let you guys choose the name for this limited release beer. Just vote for your favourite from the 3 choices above and you could be drinking a beer you helped name in a BrewDog bar near you this weekend.

Better Red Than Head
riamuantero 14.09.2011 @ 1:23pm
i believe the beer is better than the name candidates.
Ian J 14.09.2011 @ 12:58pm
'Nazi Hops Phuq Hoff' or 'Too Hopped To Phuq'?
William 14.09.2011 @ 12:43pm
I liked my Big Red Chopper name (it's big, it's red and it has Chinook hops) but 5am Sinner is better
JungleGregg 14.09.2011 @ 12:14pm
With the red style and hop choice, I'd go with "Chinooks and crannies" but of the ones available, 5pm sinner. More Roger 'moorish' than the original Saint~

4am Repentance? i voted heist, i think the nazis and facists ones are going to start a whole 'thing' that will distract from the point of brewdog,which is good beer. (as much as i agree with the sentiment btw)
Antonio R 14.09.2011 @ 11:47am
My vote goes to 5pm Sinner. And may I suggest "Ginger Mata Hari" as alternative name...
RuntimeExceptio 14.09.2011 @ 11:35am
I don't know, I really think it should be called "Name That Beer"...
Tristan R 14.09.2011 @ 11:29am
5pm Sinner gets my vote
Stephanos 14.09.2011 @ 11:27am
actually, i should have voted 5pm sinner!
mike 14.09.2011 @ 1:35am
get to tha chopper!!!
Gareth 14.09.2011 @ 12:31am
You should call it Chopper, in reference to the Chinook chopper.
ColB 13.09.2011 @ 11:07pm
The Red Skull, Captain Americas enemy, he has a red head, sort of
arobertson 13.09.2011 @ 9:57pm
Gotta be Heist as what do hops have to do with Nazis (they always seem to get bad press, don't they??) and prototype x sounds too much like prototype 17 (which is a pish drink, bloody minging).
Adrian 13.09.2011 @ 9:48pm
I think the names rock!
showell1 13.09.2011 @ 9:39pm
...but if that's the 3 choices....Heist
showell1 13.09.2011 @ 9:37pm
Think the choice of names is bawz. Red Alert seems more fitting of it's description,probably
tacticalb 13.09.2011 @ 9:19pm
Chiccheccosa? 13.09.2011 @ 7:01pm
Name "Those things that Gordon Ramsay always says..."
stravale 13.09.2011 @ 6:36pm
The names are crap. Really really crap. F**ing bitter bastard is better.
mike 13.09.2011 @ 6:35pm
What the chinook are those names?
Tim 13.09.2011 @ 6:02pm
I like the question mark too.can we call it question mark?
Iain Louden 13.09.2011 @ 5:43pm
Hops kill nazis is a bullshit name.
Iain Louden 13.09.2011 @ 5:41pm
I like it the way it is with the big fuckin' question mark on it.
Chris 13.09.2011 @ 5:28pm
5pm Saint or 5pm Sinner
The dog 13.09.2011 @ 5:07pm
Three fingered dog sounded great, but if the vote counts, i'd have to go with Heist
lspinnars 13.09.2011 @ 3:53pm
Hops kills nazis sounds extremely "pushed", Prototype X is good but sounds sterotype... I have to go for Heist!
Jihane M 13.09.2011 @ 3:42pm
I agree that none of the 3 stand out. How about the Bitter End, seeing as though it's more bitter than 5am Saint's Evil? Could be the Bitter/sweet End to a night that's ending at 5am...
Josh 13.09.2011 @ 3:37pm
Hops kill Nazis?? really??? Damn thats badHeist is excellent tho, punchy!
The Beer Dawg 13.09.2011 @ 3:36pm
I like Hops Kills Nazis. But Trainspotting RAle came to mind.
Bob1 13.09.2011 @ 3:36pm
Why not Eric?
Justin B 13.09.2011 @ 3:26pm
Hops kill nazis for me.. My own suggestion would have been 'Hops Blood'
toshaga 13.09.2011 @ 3:23pm
one day I'd like to see one named after that :)
Rowan 13.09.2011 @ 3:21pm
When will this be available
scottmcp 13.09.2011 @ 3:11pm
I could wear my SS officers hat and drinkk "Hops kill Nazis"...! :-)
[email protected] 13.09.2011 @ 1:59pm
Three fingered dog
Nate Dawg 13.09.2011 @ 1:28pm
I would've called it Viking Blood!
Stuart M 13.09.2011 @ 1:11pm
I would have suggested "BLOODHONEY" for this red ale! go on, you know you want to!! :)
hoppilly 13.09.2011 @ 1:04pm
Send some to port street beer house in Manchester please
Neil 13.09.2011 @ 12:56pm
Great Question mark James
Ian T 13.09.2011 @ 12:55pm
I love how BrewDog's detractors say they have been jumping the shark, for the past 2 years. And it never gets old. Finlay - there are no statues erected to critics :)

5am Saint is my favourite BrewDog Beer so can't wait for this one!
Stcey 13.09.2011 @ 12:32pm
Heist for me. I do like the other names too though.
Eremita 13.09.2011 @ 12:31pm
Hops Kill Nazis
Max 13.09.2011 @ 12:30pm

Bob 13.09.2011 @ 12:19pm
gypsum 13.09.2011 @ 12:19pm
if it's going to be as good as it sounds, call itbeer.
Jamie 13.09.2011 @ 12:04pm
all about Heist, you'll need someone to hold you up after a few!

Hops Kill Nazis
Heather 13.09.2011 @ 12:01pm
Hops Kill Nazis!!! Love it!
HIlter. 13.09.2011 @ 12:00pm
Its going to be Hops Kill Nazis.But personally i think thats a pretty bad name, makes it just sound gimmicky. Heist is the best of a bad bunch tbh.
James, BrewDog 13.09.2011 @ 12:00pm
Hope you like the picture!I cut out the question mark with a scissors and shot it myself. It was kinda like Blue Peter.
C Stewart 13.09.2011 @ 12:00pm
All the names suck. The beer however, sounds tasty. How's about Firehole or IRA?
aparker 13.09.2011 @ 11:59am
5am Sinner? ;)
Steve 13.09.2011 @ 11:59am
harrystrill 13.09.2011 @ 11:59am

Some cool names to choose from and really great that you let us decide the beer name!Power to the people.
Matt 13.09.2011 @ 11:43am
Hops Kil Nazis would be the coolest beer name ever! It gets my vote.
