Huruhuru beer... aka Huuyo


A Canadian brewery has apologised for unwittingly naming one of its beers after a Maori word that is commonly used to mean pubic hair.

Hell’s Basement Brewery in Alberta said it released its Huruhuru pale ale two years ago, thinking it meant “feather”.

But Maori TV personality Te Hamua Nikora pointed out the common interpretation of the word in a Facebook video.

The brewery’s founder said the product would now be rebranded.

“We acknowledge that we did not consider the commonplace use of the term huruhuru as a reference to pubic hair, and that consultation with a Maori representative would have been a better reference than online dictionaries,” Mike Patriquin told Canadian network CBC.



Someone should introduce a drink inaitwa Uhuru wanyonyi lite

I dont see the big deal ,watu wakunywe pubic hair . Prince harry named his dog pula after the botswana currency but pula in romanian means penis,but they dont care. I bet huruhuru in some native language means “chafua meza”

They just meant Uhuru ni mafudhi saaaaaiiidii

Ghasia heshimu his excellency mtoto ya umbwa.
