I was out in DC earlier this year when I first heard about "glizzies" as regional slang for "hot dogs". I don't remember the context, just that I didn't care enough to dig into why they were called that.
A few months later, I'm designing a beer to maximize haze, so I decide to make a true DDH DIPA. "True" in that it would be double the normal amount of dry hops split into two separate additions. It's a ridiculous amount of hops - an absolutely unheard of amount just a few years ago.
While making this gargantuan beer, I started hearing the term "glizzy" here in the Quad Cities. I decide to finally look up the history of the word and in doing so, I discover the term "glizzy goblin" as someone that eats a lot of hot dogs. I don't know why, but that just cracked me up. It's so dumb, but I was in tears. I told my wife about this new factoid and she surprisingly thought it was as funny as I did. I told a few other people and they cracked up too.
That's it. Not all beer names have clever names with historical significance. Sometimes a beer with a ridiculous amount of hops needs an equally ridiculous name.
