Stopped at a trail side bar while out for a ride one day and they were selling beer at a little stand by the patio. There were a couple young ladies working at the stand and a sign listing what they had so I walked up looked at the sign and said “can I get sumpin easy”. They both gave me a look and I pointed at the sign and said “the Lagunitas sumpin easy”. We laughed
There are a few beers I bought just for the name -- Sweep the Leg and Adios Pantalones. They were both Texas beers. I can't remember the brewery at this moment.
515 has a blonde ale called "Beer Flavored Beer." They also currently have a pale ale called "Clever Names Are Hard." I've always thought naming beers could be fun, but I can also see where it would be easy to run out of creativity.
When I had this the first time, I thought is was an Olde English way of spelling "peculiar". I later learned a peculier was a parish outside the jurisdiction of a diocese. Either way, it's a good beer.
Solemn Oath Brewery in the Chicagoland Suburbs (naperville) has some of the more creative names of any beer list I've seen, their beer is pretty darn good too: https://www.solemnoathbrewery.com/#

"This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to be able to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth. We would suggest that you stick to safer and more familiar territory—maybe something with a multimillion-dollar ad campaign aimed at convincing you it’s made at an independent brewery, or one that implies that their tasteless seltzer / fizzy yellow beer / whatever-the-hell will give you more sex appeal. Perhaps you think multimillion-dollar ad campaigns make all that junk taste better. Perhaps you’re mouthing your words as you read this.
We believe that pandering to the lowest common denominator represents the height of tyranny—a virtual form of keeping the consumer barefoot, stupid & led by the nose social media. Brought forth upon an unsuspecting public in 1997, Arrogant Bastard Ale openly challenged the tyrannical overlords who were brazenly attempting to keep the people chained in the shackles of poor taste. One glance around and it’s glaringly obvious: they’re winning...as of now. Yet we will not stop. Ever. Since the very beginning, Arrogant Bastard Ale has reveled in its unprecedented and uncompromising celebration of intensity. There have been many nods to Arrogant Bastard Ale…even outright attempts to copy it…but only one can ever embody the true nature of Liquid Arrogance! Hated By Many. Loved By Few."
