Bruce of Brews Purveyor of Fine Latex Products & Writer

Favorite Animal: Pteromyini
Bruce's legend precedes him, the way lightning precedes thunder. His words carry weight that would break any other man's jaw. He is often questioned by police, just because they find him intriguing. When he is not writing for The Drink Nation, you can find him standing directly behind you.
Dr. Claw Unknown
Favorite Beverage: Unknown
Favorite Animal: Probably the cat?
Very little is known about Dr. Claw and he won't answer any of our questions. He mostly just sits in his office watching a monitor and occasionally pounds his fist on his desk. He kind of came with the office, so we just let him do his thing.
