Beer names can be created in any number of ways – they can be factual (Tuatara Pilsner is a Pilsner made by Tuatara), they can be fanciful (Tui East India Pale Ale is not an East India Pale Ale, it is not an India Pale Ale, it is not a Pale Ale, it is not even an ale), they can be puns (Fork Brewing Puns N’ Goses – which is indeed a Gose) or they can be just a little bit weird based on a five-second review given deep into a beer festival (Epic Dankomatic IPA).
