Name that Ale (and you could win 72 pints)

(Last Updated On: October 23, 2014)

What do you call an ale that’s been brewed for giraffes? That’s the challenge being set by two major local names.

Paignton Zoo and Bays Brewery have teamed up to launch a brand new ale to help raise money for conservation. And they’re inviting people to enter an online competition to give it a name.

Pete Salmon of Bays Brewery explained: “We produced a special ale for The Great Gorillas Project in 2013 and a rhino ale this summer. They were both successful, so now we’re doing another – and this time the theme is giraffes.”

Kat Sobey of Paignton Zoo added: “You can enter via Facebook, Twitter and through our web site. The winner will receive a cask – that’s 72 pints – of Bays beer AND an exclusive Feed the Giraffe experience for two people at Paignton Zoo.” The winning giraffe-inspired name will appear on bottles and pump clip designs.

The Paignton Zoo giraffe herd consists of adult male Yoda, females Janica and Sangha, juvenile female Otilie, born to mother Sangha in September 2012 and juvenile female Joanna, born to mother Sangha in January 2014.

Sales of Bays Brewery rhino ale raised £2,752 for Paignton Zoo conservation projects. Representatives from Bays Brewery and Wetherspoon’s recently presented a cheque to the charity under the gaze of the Zoo’s rhinos, Manyara and Sita.
