About Tailgunner Brewing Co.
The inspiration behind Tailgunner Brewing Company is a remarkable story of service, sacrifice and bravery. In early 1943, a Lancaster was shot down over Holland in World War Two. The entire flight crew was lost in the crash, save for the tail gunner, Lint Stephenson.
For two and a half years, Lint was imprisoned in a Nazi internment camp, enduring torture, starvation, and unimaginable horrors that would haunt him for the rest of his life. After being liberated in 1945 and returning home to Canada, Lint never complained nor did he ever give up; Lint was simply a man that fought and persevered for the benefit of others.
Lint passed away in 2015 but will be remembered as an honoured hero that served to protect the liberty and freedom enjoyed all over the world today. Lint's sacrifice, selflessness, and bravery will never be forgotten.
