Every now and again in New Mexico a beer gets released whose name alone catches your eye. Sometimes they are funny, sometimes they are simply creative, and other times they are downright weird. Naming a beer can often be a fun process for brewers and their staffs. It can also be a pain in the butt.
Over the course of 2015, our many breweries came up with some truly creative names for some of their one-offs and regulars. Going back over everything that was released in 2015 (carry-over beers from 2014 were not eligible), we did our best to figure out one beer per brewery whose name really stood out.
Now we want you to vote. Please just vote for the name of the beer. Even if you did not like the beer, or never got to try it, that is irrelevant. To further help alleviate any possible brewery bias, we are not listing the breweries these beers came from, but suffice it to say almost everyone listed in The Week Ahead in Beer has one nominee. There is also one collaboration beer between two local breweries. So vote away and we will reveal the winner a week from today.
