Just in time for the winter holidays, Rogue Ales & Spirits has released the sixth beer in the Voodoo Doughnut Series, Grape Guerrilla Ale.
The release of Grape Guerrilla Ale was announced last week on both Voodoo’s Facebook page and Rogue’s blog. An email received from a Rogue confirms that “the beer has been shipped world-wide at this time.”
The partnership between the two Oregon companies has produced five other doughnut inspired beers:
- 2011 – Maple Bacon Ale – 5.6 percent ABV
- 2012 – Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ale – 5.3 percent ABV
- 2013 – Pretzel, Raspberry & Chocolate Ale – 5.4 percent ABV
- 2014 – Lemon Chiffon Crueller Ale – 6.9 percent ABV
- 2015 – Mango Astronaut Ale – 5.5 percent ABV
Voodoo’s slogan “good things come in pink boxes” expands to include the 750ml bottles for the series, which are pink as well.
Grape Guerrilla clocks in at 7.5 percent, the highest ABV in the VooDoo series thus far. The inspiration for the beer is VooDoo’s Grape Ape doughnut features vanilla frosting, grape dust and lavender colored sprinkles
“The beer is fantastic. It’s got a great grape essence and doesn’t taste like cough syrup. It’s grape in a great way,” said Brett Joyce, president of Rogue Ales & Sprits, in a blog post.
