Happy Birthday danyP !! A particularly delicious paper-labeled bottle of Automne is what put me over the edge in 2005. Hope you get to do exactly what you want today :D

Here's an odd one for ya danyP ...i'm working on a set of beers at my brewery and a perfect name for one of them would be Le Fantome Noir...would you be willing to let us use that name?

Thanks in advance :)

I might (probably) just be an asshole, but I think you 100% shouldn't. Obviously this is using their brewery name, which by itself isn't terrible, but still shakey. You must think that at least or you wouldn't ask. Second, he has a beer called Black Ghost/Noire de Noire. Lastly, why ask in public? That puts Dany in a more awkward position, which could lead him to uncomfortably comply as to not stir things up.

I don't think you're an asshole! I think you're thinking my intentions are dubious, which i assure you they are not.

The beers are a play on White and Black ghosts, hence Black and Phantom. It's also a reference to a Mickey Mouse era character, and that's the way it's spelled.

I didn't know about Noire de Noire.

And I don't think this puts him in a weird position at all, but i kinda see what you mean. I asked publicly because it's an AMA and I know he posts here and is responsive. It's totally ok if he says No, that's why i asked in the first place :)

And really, out of all the other words in the English and French languages this is what you think you need to go with?
See above re: concept.

Sorry if this rubbed you guys the wrong way, I assure you the question was asked out of respect.

danyP you are the kindest man who has ever lived. After mentioning that the labels on his bottles are difficult to remove without damaging them, I get this in the mail:


Thank you so much! Now I'll definitely have to make the trip to Soy soon to thank you in person.
That is awesome... stuff like that makes me like them even more than I already did.
