Choosing a name for a company is an interesting process. After getting together as a family and brainstorming, we mulled over several names, checked out web domains, and struggled to find one that we could all agree on. We really wanted something that would convey what we are trying to do; brew something unique and lasting. In the end, it all came down to a small ginkgo tree in our back yard that was given to us by my mother. The name rolled off our son’s tongue….Biloba!
Our name was chosen for the Ginkgo Biloba tree which is a unique species with no close living relatives, somewhat erratic branches, yet deeply rooted. The Ginkgo is in a class by itself. Like the ginkgo, we want our brewery to be strongly rooted in the community while producing some one of a kind, great beers.
