I don't think it's real French, and I don't know what it really means, but if you pronounce it à la française, it sounds like a very funny word to associate with a beer in America.

I didn't want to put it out there (I still have 9 year old former students that read this) but let's just say that...

"Ch" in french is "Sh"
"Ti" in french sounds like the drink you have with jam and bread.

Combine them, and you get...

Ch'Ti Beer.

I think "ch'ti" is a word from Northern or Northeastern France, where the beer is made.

It's good stuff, innit? :)
