In an exclusive partnership with Liberation Brewery, Durrell is delighted to announce the launch of a bespoke golden ale in the 60th anniversary year of the Trust.
Brewed in Jersey, this premium golden ale, made with classic British malts, blends European and American hops with a hint of spice and citrus. The design reflects Durrell’s ‘Go Wild’ graphics used in advertising across the Island and the gorilla graphic links to the Go Wild Gorilla project that will see 40 life-sized, artist imagined, gorilla sculptures placed across Jersey this summer.
Liberation is donating ten pence from the sale of every bottle to international wildlife charity, Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, to enable them to continue their vital work saving the world’s most threatened species.
Commenting on the partnership, Dr. Lesley Dickie, CEO of Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust said: “We are thrilled to partner with Liberation Brewery to produce this golden ale, which we hope everyone in Jersey and beyond will be drinking this summer to celebrate our 60th anniversary. We are very grateful to Liberation for supporting our work in this way.”
Liberation Brewery’s Head Brewer, Patrick Dean added: “Liberation Brewery are very proud to have been asked to create a new beer for Durrell Wildlife Conversation Trust and help them celebrate 60 years of saving species from extinction. ‘Go Wild’ is an easy drinking golden ale that is perfect to enjoy with BBQs this summer.”
Go Wild beer is available at Jersey Zoo’s gift shop and cafés. Other retailers include Victor Hugo and it will be available in Liberation pubs soon.
Liberation Brewery are also sponsoring a Gorilla sculpture that will be part of the Go Wild Gorillas sculpture trail taking place from 27 July – 14 October 2019.
