Since the Bent Nail is a Pico Brewery (which means it’s really small)

we can brew many different brews depending on the season. 

Our what's on tap section changes regularly so check back here or on social media. 

About Bent Nail Brewery

FAMILY, FRIENDS & FUTURE

Bent Nail Brewery _ Family

Bent Nail Brewery is located in Windsor Forks in Nova Scotia’s Avon Valley and is built on farmland that has been in our family’s name since 1862. 

 

The story of Bent Nail started a long time ago when we were just kids.  Our parents were having our home renovated and every night our father would walk around the house and gather all the nails that the carpenters had discarded.  Our father, a collector of anything deemed reusable, held on to those nails for a few years until one day, he sat us down in the driveway next to a cinder block, handed us hammers and told us to straighten out the nails if we wanted to earn our weekly allowance. We obeyed.

We soon learned that the result of this small and tedious task was literally the foundation of a much larger project.  These recycled yet mighty nails were used to build our family cottage on the Northumberland Strait and was appropriately named The Bent Nail.  

 

To pay homage to our loving mother and father for their guidance, ingenuity, and frugality, we named our brewery, BENT NAIL.
