A Beer for the Birds

Red Brick Brewing Co. and Georgia Aquarium are excited to announce their newest beer: Penguin Pale Ale.

Red Brick Brewing Co., Atlanta’s oldest operating craft brewer, and Georgia Aquarium, the largest aquarium in the Western Hemisphere, have partnered together to create their second exclusive craft beer, Penguin Pale Ale. This contemporary pale ale brings attention to Georgia Aquarium’s most popular aquatic birds, the endangered African penguins. A portion of Penguin Pale Ale sales will go towards Georgia Aquarium’s African penguin research and conservation efforts.

Red Brick and Georgia Aquarium continue to create beer that represents Atlanta in a unique way and highlights both organizations’ commitment to conservation.

Helping African Penguins Around the World

African penguin populations have dropped 60% in the last 30 years and the species is now considered endangered. Many of the penguins on exhibit at Georgia Aquarium are part of a Species Survival Plan (SSP) coordinated by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). These plans promote genetic diversity within populations of endangered species residing in zoological institutions by selective and strategic breeding. Georgia Aquarium partners with the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB) in Cape Town, South Africa. Georgia Aquarium assists SANCCOB with rescue, rehabilitation, and release of African penguins and other coastal birds.
