There are 18 species of lesser apes, known as gibbons (genus Hylobates). The label picture is of a Bornean white-bearded gibbon (Hylobates albibarbis). Most, if not all gibbon species are endangered due to habitat loss (deforestation), illegal hunting and the commercial bushmeat trade. Habitat conservation is a long term conservation priority.
So why not Gibbon this golden ale a go! It is brewed to support Ape Action Africa who strive to protect apes through direct action, including rescuing orphaned gorillas, chimpanzees and monkeys. Along with its sister beer Orangutan this beer also supports The Orangutan Appeal UK.
