Another contender for our "Bad Santa" award. A real shame they went for a poo gag as the beer is quite good ,(If memory serves) it was a light beer with citrusy flavours and would be ideal to go with your Turkey come the 25th. I suppose we should be glad they avoided an actual comic depiction of the Reindeer dung being produced or similar.

Fallen Angel Brewery. It's very hard to work out the beer's name. It must be something like "raised-a-catholic brewer's sex fantasy."
For the full horror of this brewery's pumpclips visit their website.
I rather like "smiling woman in her knickers about to shoot dogs." Make mine a pint.

I was Invited along to Pete Brown's birthday bash and fishing around in his wonderfully generous ice bucket of beery remainders ,a real hotch potch of gems and lumps of solid green (one other bottle actually smelt of stagnant pond water) I fell upon this bottle.
Now the simple label may have won me over but well just because your brewery is the town of Piddle* ....
Sadly I was distracted (it was an excellent party) and didn't manage to drink any "piddle" but it seems they have a whole range of urine based beer names. Their seasonal beers are equally scatalogical so they seem determined to micturate over their good work producing "fruity winterberry finishes" and "light zingy floral and blackcurrent hop flavours"
* one can only imagine the horrors if they had opened up their brew house in Penistone, Wombwell or Twatt!

Could the Northumberland Brewery have beaten the Hart Brewery to the title "The Worst Beer Branding in the UK"?
[Have a look at this for jaw-dropping gormlessness]
Holden's Brewery "Flo Jangles".
Thanks to Stuart Ross for the pic.
It seems Holdens might produce quite a range of atrocities – check here. Keep your eyes peeled.

Thanks to Stoph McBride and Dave "Hardknott" Bailey for their commitment to atrocity-spotting.
And thank you very bloody much to Andy Mogg for making me go into Netto for the "Back of the Netto" pic.

Here's an abomination from Skinner's Brewery – "Ginger Tosser".
Curiously, it would easy to conclude that some ginger had been tossed in the brew but, no, it's "made with Cornish honey."
Curioser, the cartoon chap appears to be wielding a frying pan. Presumably this is to suggest the tossing of pancakes.
What a fucking mess.

World campest dog get's beer named in his honour

Thought we'd have an example of good practice for a change. Also gives me a chance to big up one of the most pampered pooches around!
Naming beers after dogs has a long pedigree with dogs and pubs going even further back. So the occasional brew named in honour of the brewer's favourite hound is all to the good. This IPA from Kelham has a nice mocked up painted picture of the eponymous Captain (seemingly smoking a cheroot*) on the clip and the IPA by all accounts is excellent too.
"We'll have another one please barman and have you got a bowl for wee lad here?"
* it's a dog chew actually - pig's pizzle ed
Star fact file: Captain is only his stage name he was demoted after being rescued and thrown into the showbiz spotlight he used to be a "Colonel"! FACT.
