Now that Peter Dudley's contest is finished, I can show off my entry. The contest was to make up both a name and a label for the home-brew beer Peter intends to drink in his hot tub with his buddies as they watch the World Cup.

I felt pretty pleased with how this turned out. The beer name was a variation on "Winkle's Old Peculiar" from the Diskworld novels, but then Peter suggested adding "and" between "Old" and "Peculiar", and I really liked the additional ambiguity (i.e. is that " 's " possessive, or is it short for "Dudley is..."?)
