The name started as a joke between the first 2 Dr's and well it stuck. "The Fat Man Brewery" was set we just needed a logo.
After some searching the first detonated Plutonium bomb appeared in a search and Dr remembered it's name was "the Fat Man." It was an instanst hit. With some photo shop work our logo and theme for the brewery was born. The "a" bomb.
Now for a few history facts for you;
Little Boy and Fat Man
Little Boy was the first nuclear weapon used in warfare. It exploded approximately 1,800 feet over Hiroshima, Japan, on the morning of August 6, 1945, with a force equal to 13,000 tons of TNT. Immediate deaths were between 70,000 to 130,000.
Little Boy was dropped from a B-29 bomber piloted by U.S. Army Air Force Col. Paul W. Tibbets. Tibbets had named the plane Enola Gay after his mother the night before the atomic attack.
Fat Man was the second nuclear weapon used in warfare. Dropped on Nagasaki, Japan, on August 9, 1945, Fat Man devastated more than two square miles of the city and caused approximately 45,000 immediate deaths.
Major Charles W. Sweeney piloted the B-29, #77 that dropped Fat Man. After the nuclear mission, #77 was christened Bockscar after its regular Command Pilot, Fred Bock.
While Little Boy was a uranium gun-type device, Fat Man was a more complicated and powerful plutonium implosion weapon that exploded with a force equal to 20 kilotons of TNT.
By no means is this theme information or any item associated with "the Fat Man Brewery" meant to offend, be insensative or in any way be racist. WWII was costly to all countries involved. Some may hold negative feelings or have family killed in war, as I have. War is not pleasant and both sides in all wars loose life.
Remember to love those lost, prevent your own actions from creating war, and live life Free. If you are still offended kiss my ass.
