With more than 5,562 breweries currently operating in the US, coming up with unique names for all the beers that they’re generating is becoming increasingly difficult. So researcher Janelle Shane decided to shop that job out to an ‘artificial intelligence’ network with interesting results.
Using a dataset of hundreds of thousands of beer names spanning 90 different beer styles that her friend was able to secure from BeerAdvocate, Janelle plugged all the info into a neural network program to see what it would come up with. And here are some of the results.

Janelle went on to post that these names were just the tip of the iceberg and if you check in with her HERE she’ll send you a PDF with even more names.
And yes, some of those names incorporated words like snot or fart…but who said artificial intelligence doesn’t enjoy a little ‘bathroom humor’ from time to time.
Plus she’ll email you on occasion with sets of neural network generated names on a variety of topics, something she hopes to do once a week.
