Voodoo Ranger is a new IPA from New Belgium Brewing Company. Armed with an iconic DeLorean the action unfolds in Chicago. Here’s the news….

(Fort Collins, CO- July 8th, 2020)– New Belgium Brewing’s Voodoo Ranger IPA will take over the streets of Chicago on July 15th, 2020 to deliver the brand’s newest rotating IPA release, 1985 IPA. In true Voodoo Ranger fashion, deliveries won’t be made in just any standard vehicle. The brand is taking it to the next level and transcending time, 35 years back in time, to be exact. Chicago beer fans will have the chance to order 1985 IPA through Minibar Delivery and have their beer delivered to them in a gigawatt time machine. Righteous!

The delivery approach is consistent with the bold and sometimes outlandish content featured on the @voodooranger Instagram handle that has become a fan favorite of beer drinkers everywhere. Voodoo Ranger debuted in 2017 and the brand has since catapulted in popularity. 1985 IPA is the newest rotating release and is bursting with juicy mango flavor, just in time for summer. This bright, fruit-forward IPA showcases a refreshing flavor and slightly lower ABV for bodacious drinkability. The Voodoo Ranger family of IPAs is one of the fastest selling brands in craft beer and represents 4 of the 17 top selling IPAs in the country. While the larger craft category continues to grow at a rate of 1.8%, the Voodoo Ranger franchise is growing at an astounding 54%.

“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!”
