What Are We
Drinking Tonight?

We love to sip on just about anything, but you’ll notice that Bendy Straw has a particular focus on non-alcoholic beer and other alcohol alternatives. More people are discovering that these drinks are legitimately delicious, and we want to be the guides that help everyone find the drink that’s just right for them. You’ll also see that we enjoy coffee, tea, seltzers, and other drinks that are non-alcoholic by default. These are interesting in their own right, but they also can end up playing a key role in creating non-alcoholic cocktails that delight.


Our goal is to help everyone explore and enjoy delicious beverages, for any time of day or situation. Whether you don’t consume alcohol at all, or you just want to add some non-alcoholic options to your personal repertoire, Bendy Straw is here to help you find something new to sip.
