Fantasy Beer Name Generator - Pure Genius or... (PWYW)

So, between having my niece over, trying to watch some football (excellent Giants / Saints game BTW) and reading the last bits of Event Horizon for White Star, I stumbled across this little beauty at RPGNow:

Fantasy Beer Name Generator

It is what it say on the tin. I'm tempted to use it to name my next homebrew (October is right around the corner).

As someone much smarter than me just told me - it's more useful that 40% of the releases at RPGNow based on title alone ;)

Remember, all purchases using The Tavern's RPGNow affiliate links puts 5% of your purchase price into The Tavern's coffers. Don't leave that money on the table for the greedy corps! Tip your barman!  ;)
Taverns and inns are a common staple of fantasy settings; they are places where players meet, get into fights and do business. But what if they want to have a drink? 
Rather than simply saying that they can have ale, beer, mead and so on, this generator has a set of seven tables that can be used to roll up a more exotic sounding drinks (or simply pick the names manually). A minimum of two tables should be used, but all can be rolled on for a more complex name. The tables have from eight to thirty results, and the results can be shuffled into a name for the drink, combining them with filler words so that the name makes sense. Two supplementary tables of thirty results each provide options to describe the drink's flavour. 
An example result, using all of the tables, would be Vale of the Green Orc Hunter's Best Ruby Mild, a drink with a fruity flavour and overtones of peaches. 
As well as being used to create fantasy drinks, these tables can be used for beer names in any setting or period, including modern, as they are not dissimilar to modern microbrew names.
