First Posted: 11/06/2010 1:37 pm   Updated: 09/20/2012 1:04 pm

On the other hand, there are a slew of foreign and domestic microbreweries that produce some really hilariously named beers. Have you ever drank an Arrogant Bastard Ale or a Seriously Bad Elf? We found some of the funniest beer names out there and want you to submit your own. If you think you can top Santa's Butt Porter then bravo!
