Black Sun Brewing is the name I’ve given my home brewery, it’s also the name I would give to a brewery if I ever owned one.
The name comes from one of my favourite books Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson; in the book the Black Sun building in the metaverse is a sort of exclusive club, founded by one of the main characters and populated by an interesting range of clientèle.
According to wikipedia, Black Sun can refer to the sun in hermetic and alchemic study, be a symbol of esoteric or occult significance and forms part of Mesoamerican mythology. For me though, as I’m interested in the night sky, you could say that it’s just another name for a Dark-energy star, black hole or for all the stuff that a star chucks out that we can’t see, I’ll leave you to decide.
The image of the sun used in the beer label template at the top of the page, was taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory, you can see the original in their flickr photostream. It’s available for use under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.0 Generic license.
