THE VERMIN BREWING MASCOTS
Dude, Slick & Taz
Dude and Slick were bought at a local pet store on June 13, 2008. Their actual home was a few doors down from Vermin Brewing, but they were considered honorary members. A week later, Taz ("the Spaz") joined them from the same pet store. He had apparently had made such an impression that his new owner had to go back for him.
In June 2009, the rats officially moved into the Vermin Brewing home since their owner no longer had the room to care for them. They used to all live together in their own rat room, cage-free, but as they got older, they started having more and more fights. So they had to unfortunately be split up, each getting his own cage. It took them some getting used to but now they seem to enjoy their own private space. There are still plenty of outtings for playtime... although mostly they just enjoy being couch potatos!
