Bent Tail Brewing Company is located in REAL gastropub. The name originates from the owner’s’ dog, Bender. He is a rescued dog and is one of eight puppies in the litter. Bender was born with a bent tail shaped like an “S”. “We wanted a name of the brewery that was near and dear to us. As we were trying to find a name, my dog Bender walked by and immediately decided to name the brewery after him”, states Terorotua, owner of REAL gastropub and Bent Tail Brewing Company.
