The tale of our logo
What does our tale logo symbolize?
The symbol that represents the logo on the Tale bottle is an Adinkra symbol that is highly significant in West Africa. This specific Adinkra symbol is called Okodee Mmowere, representing the “Talons of the Eagle” in Twi, the local Ghanaian language. It represents power, strength, bravery and unity - qualities often associated with an eagle.
Why are Tale beers numbered?
Alcohol by volume (ABV) is a metric used to determine the alcohol content in an alcoholic beverage. The measurement shows what percentage of the beverage’s total volume is pure alcohol.
When it comes to ABV, beer is typically the alcoholic beverage with some of the lowest alcohol levels. That being said, ABV varies between different types of beer. Usually, beers have an ABV between 3.5% - 7%, but there are outliers with higher or lower ABVs. Some beers may have an ABV of less than 1%, while some IPAs might have an ABV well above 10%. Beers that have lower ABVs are typically much lighter and have many great food pairings, while beers with higher ABVs will have a much stronger and acquired taste.
At Tale our Ales are named after their ABV, so Tale 5 would mean that its ABV is 5% and so on.
