Two women walk into a brew pub. They belly up to the bar and one says: "My friend will have an Arrogant Bastard, and I'll take a Night Rider." Nobody laughs or looks puzzled. That's because she ordered a Stone Brewing Co. strong ale and an American double stout by Pizza Port. Have you noticed the names on San Diego's craft beers? They can be funny, punny, sophomoric or sophisticated. But if someone gave you a grocery list and no explanation, could you discern between monikers of beer, wine or cheese? For that matter, rock bands? To that end, here's a quiz. Test yourself, then test a friend. Then, go buy a six pack of something. (scroll down for answers)
