PU­BIC APOL­OGY

- Breweries · Beer · Alcoholic Drinks · Alberta · New Zealand

A Cana­dian brew­ery has apol­o­gised for nam­ing one of its beers af­ter the Maori term for “pu­bic hair”, and not “feather” as it had in­tended, CBC re­ported.

Hell’s Base­ment Brew­ery in Al­berta prov­ince launched its Hu­ruhuru (The Feather) New Zealand pale ale two years ago, us­ing the Maori term they be­lieved meant feather to re­flect its light cit­rus taste for a sum­mer brew.

But ear­lier this week for­mer Maori TV per­son­al­ity Te Ha­mua Nikora posted a Face­book video to ex­plain “hu­ruhuru” was more com­monly used in Te Reo Maori to re­fer to pu­bic hair.
