Prancing Pony Brewery partners with Zoos SA to help save species

Prancing Pony Brewery has joined forces with Zoos SA to highlight conservation programs of species that are endangered or, in the case of the Przewalski’s Horse, just a trot away from extinction.

Rarely Tame lager which goes on sale from 16 August will see the brewery donate $10 from every carton sold to assist in the conservation of these endangered wild horses.

The Przewalski’s Horse or P-Horse is the world’s last remaining pure wild horse. Smaller than domestic horses, they have stocky bodies, a thick upright mane and are rarely tame. Originally native to the steppes of Central Asia, this species is endangered. Zoos SA’s Monarto Safari Park’s herdof pure P-horses are vital for the conservation of the species.

“We didn’t know a lot about the P-horse before we chatted with Zoos SA, but the conservation project immediately struck a chord with all of us at the Pony. Our philosophies to recycle, reduce and re-use are fundamental in minimising our environmental footprint and so is the conservation of endangered species,” says Corinna, CEO of the Prancing Pony Brewery.

The project is perfect on many levels. At the Pony we love horses, even more, we love the not so tame ones, and those that have character and fight for survival.  And like Monarto Safari Park, the Prancing Pony Brewery is a family friendly venue and we all are massive animal lovers and welcome well behaved pets in our venue’.

“When we look at partnerships we naturally look at organisations that share our values and align with our philosophy,”says Stephanie Engelaar, Partnerships Manager at Monarto Safari Park.

“We are excited that Prancing Pony can help spread the conservation message about the Przewalski’s Horse and encourage gift-buyers to snap up some Rarely Tame lager and see the horses and learn more about them at Monarto Safari Park,” finished Stephanie.

To support the Monarto Safari Park, the Prancing Pony created a beer with an amazing label to raise awareness and funds. The label was created by Prancing Pony’s designer Sherri Maxwell. Inspired by ancient cave paintings, the water-coloured horse depicts resilience and strength. The ‘paper strip’ background colours represent the steppe and mountainous terrain with the lines connecting the P-horse with its past and into the future.

The Rarely Tame Lager is a refreshing, easy drinking beer using Australian grains and German noble hops and will be available for purchase online and at the Brewery.  From each carton sold, a donation of $10 per carton will go to Monarto Safari Park to assist in keeping the Przewalski’s Horses a trot ahead of extinction.

The Rarely Tame Lager will be launched at the Prancing Pony Brewery on the 29th of August, from 1pm onwards.  This will be a family-friendly event with children’s activities, food, drinks and music  at the brewshed.

Purchases of Rarely Tame lager can be made HERE.
