The '80s, what a decade? Big hair, neon colors, a flying Delorean...those were the good old days. Wouldn't it be great to go back to the future? Turns out you can! Courtesy of craft beer giant, New Belgium Brewing and their famous Voodoo Ranger IPA series.
Voodoo Ranger 1985 IPA to Make Quite an Entrance
New Belgium Brewing recently introduced a new rotator, 1985 IPA, to the massively successful line of Voodoo Ranger IPA beers, and is making quite an entrance with this 80’s-themed hit. On July 15, the Voodoo Ranger himself is time traveling back 35 years and commandeering one of the most iconic sports cars from the 1980s to deliver 1985 IPA to some very lucky people of Chicago. Talk about your ultimate craft beer delivery.
Teaming Up With Minibar to Bring You Back to the Future
Gnarly stunts and Voodoo Ranger go hand in hand, but a beer delivery like this could only take place with the help of alcohol delivery service, Minibar. Third-party alcohol delivery sales have tripled during the ongoing quarantine. New Belgium will team up with MiniBar Delivery in Chicago –the setting for some of the most iconic 80s movies of all time.
“More people are utilizing beer delivery services than ever before,” said Dave Knospe, Brand Manager for Voodoo Ranger. “So, we thought, how can we bring a bit of fun to that experience? We're excited to unveil 1985 IPA in such a nostalgic way. What's better than beer delivery? Beer that’s delivered in a time machine!”
A Craft Beer That's a Bit Hazy, Just Like the 80s
Odds are you've drank your fair share of New Belgium beers apres ski. What I often refer to as the godfather of ski beers is Fat Tire Ale, but if you haven't had any IPAs from the Voodoo Ranger family, now is the time to give one a try. New Belgium Brewing, the 4th largest craft brewery in the US, released Voodoo Ranger 1985 IPA this spring. This fruit-forward, mango IPA is bursting with tropical mango and even some notes of pineapple. Slightly bitter but highly refreshing as the mango taste lingers a bit at the end, it is an excellent way to celebrate with friends after any activity or adventure.
