The magnificent elephant is under threat and populations are sadly in decline due to poaching and a shrinking habitat.  As a result, Bays Brewery have once again teamed up with Paignton Zoo to brew a special beer in aid of elephants, aptly named ‘Trunk Ale’.

‘Trunk Ale’ has been brewed using traditional methods with exciting new hops, resulting in a well-balanced deep amber ale.

Bays are donating 10 pence from every pint sold towards supporting vital conservation work.

Pete Salmon of Bays Brewery explained: “Bays are very happy to continue working with a local charity supporting international conservation. We’re very pleased with our Trunk Ale – it’s a well-balanced, easy-drinking, light golden ale.

“We produced a special ale for The Great Gorillas Project in 2013, one for rhinos in 2014, one for the giraffes in 2015 and in 2016 had huge success with The Great Big Rhino Project Rhino Ale. Last year we made an ale for crocodiles to support the Zoo in their year of Cold Blooded Creatures. For 2018 we have decided to make an ale for elephants, to highlight the important conservation work that the Zoo is part of for this animal."
