Bays Brewery are brewing a special orangutan-themed beer for Paignton Zoo. The guest beer, simply called Orangutan Amber Ale, is a new recipe with a handsome tawny colour to match its name and the species.
Orangutan Ale is being launched on Monday 4th March 2019 and will be available as a draught beer in selected local pubs until the end of May. The Paignton microbrewery is donating 10p for every pint sold.
Pete Salmon from Bays said: “We are delighted to continue our relationship with Paignton Zoo. Since 2013, our partnership has raised nearly £20,000, with beers themed around rhinos, giraffes, gorillas, crocodiles and elephants. They were all successful, so now we’re doing another – this time we’ve chosen orangutans, a species that undoubtedly needs help.”
Orangutan Amber Ale (4.5%) is a slightly sweet, deep ‘orangutan orange’ coloured ale. A blend of carefully selected malts paired with one of the UK’s most aromatic hops, Godiva, create this flavoursome ale with an intriguing tangerine and gooseberry character. Orangutans are the world's largest tree-climbing mammals, but their forest habitat in Indonesia and Malaysia is rapidly disappearing, sadly putting the future of Asia's only great ape in peril. Bays Brewery are donating 10p from every pint sold to wildlife conservation.
Pippa Craddock, Director of Marketing & Development for Paignton Zoo, added: “We’re delighted to be working with Bays again this year. The support that they, and their customers, have given us for the last 6 years has made a made a real difference to vital conservation work both at home and overseas.”
