What's in a name?

Naming our beers was one of the trickier tasks we came up against when designing our branding. There are so many craft beer legends out there with super creative, clever and witty names. After thinking long and hard and after lots of puns and plays on words (mostly from co-founder John) we realised that we may have been trying to be something we’re not.
Now that’s not to say we aren’t creative, clever or witty…we just forgot that starting the Copper Beech Brewing company was a very personal journey. Each beer has been brewed from the heart with a memory attached and we didn’t want to keep it all to ourselves so we thought what better way to share them with you? Read on to find out how your beer got its name.

Not going to lie...this is the first of the range that we kinda copped out on the naming process for 🙈

If you've had our Zesty Chocolate Stout 'Half Moon' then you'll probably know the name inspiration was taken from Dan's love of Jaffa Cakes and the 90's advert (full moon, half moon, total eclipse). After its popularity Dan decided to do a stronger, fuller version of the beer. It just made complete sense to go with Full Moon for the name.

Of course this can mean only one thing, surely!? There's a beer somewhere in the future of Dan's conciousness named Total Eclipse...watch this space!
