The name of Ashton Brewery’s latest beer was chosen via a Beer Naming Competition with the winning entery being announced at the Angry Parrot on February 3rd 2022.
The winner of the Beer Naming Competition (Paul) is shown here with Ashton Brewery Founder (Pete)
Paul suggested the name Kakapo for Pete’s new brew, a 4.3% Pale Ale brewed Nelson Sauvin hops. The micropub invited customers to come along to the pub for a pint and be inspired to think up a name for our brand new refreshing session pale ale brewed with the unique hops from New Zealand. The hops are named after the Sauvignon blanc grape which gives the beer a distinctive white wine fruitiness with flavours of fresh crushed gooseberries.
The Kakapo is a friendly nocturnal, flightless parrot from New Zealand.
