New Belgium Promotes Home Delivery of Voodoo Ranger 1985 IPA in Chicago

FORT COLLINS, Colo.– 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.

“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 portion of the delivery proceeds will be donated to the Comp Tab Relief Fund, totaling a minimum donation of $5,000 from Voodoo Ranger. The Comp Tab Relief Fund is a community-based fund created by and for hospitality professionals and will be a collective and equitable source of financial aid and resources for those in Chicagoland immediately affected by statewide closures.

For a chance to participate in this one-day-only event, beer and ‘80s fans alike can sign up now with Minibar Delivery and schedule an order for 1985 IPA for delivery between the hours of 2-7pm on July 15th, 2020, or they can order on-demand delivery between the hours of 2-7pm on July 15th, 2020.  A selection of lucky fans will receive their delivery via a gigawatt time machine. Bust out those neon sunglasses and buckle up Chicago!
