Join us on Wednesday, August 18th for our release of the Naughty Lobo!
We’ve partnered with the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum in effort to raise awareness and fundraise for the Mexican Gray Wolves. The Naughty Lobo is an Imperial Blood Orange Gose infused with local chiltepines from the AZSDM Mexican Gray Wolf habitat.
“The Mexican Gray Wolf is a subspecies of the gray wolf, commonly referred to as “el lobo”.
Though they once numbered in the thousands, these wolves were wiped out in the U.S. by the mid-1970s, with just a handful existing in zoos. In 1998, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, led by Jamie Rappaport Clark (now president of Defenders of Wildlife), released 11 Mexican gray wolves back into the wild in Arizona.
Although their numbers have grown slowly, they remain the most endangered subspecies of wolf in the world because of compromised genetics, human intolerance and reluctance to release more individuals and bonded pairs to the wild.” https://defenders.org/wildlife/mexican-gray-wolf
“ASDM spearheaded a captive breeding program that is bringing the wolves’ numbers back from the brink. Now a reintroduction campaign is attempting to restore wolves to their rightful place in the mountains of the Southwest.
Listen for the howl of the wolves on your next visit to the Desert Museum, expecially during the spring mating season.” – https://www.desertmuseum.org/visit/exhibits_mountainwoodland.php
10% of our beer sales of the Naughty Lobo will be donated to the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum’s effort to re-establish El Lobo’s in the wild.
Hope to see you there!
