Rogue Ales has announced the release of Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Mango Astronaut Ale, the latest in its line of doughnut-inspired ales. For this release Rogue teamed up with world-famous Voodoo Doughnuts to celebrate two of the greatest inventions on planet earth: beer and doughnuts. Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Mango Astronaut Ale was inspired by the Voodoo Doughnut Mango Tango, a doughnut filled with mango jelly and topped with vanilla frosting and a tangy orange powder.
“Rogue approached us five years ago and wanted to make a beer that tasted like our doughnuts. After a lot of trial and error, we created Bacon Maple Ale and it’s been a great collision ever since,” said Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson, co-founder of Voodoo Doughnuts.
“We just got together to see what would happen. As it turns out, good things come in pink boxes and pink bottles,” added Tres Shannon, co-founder of Voodoo Doughnuts.
Voodoo Doughnut Mango Astronaut Ale is now available in pink 750 ml bottles worldwide, no space travel required. For more information visit rogue.com.
Rogue Ales & Spirits
Rogue Ales & Spirits is an agri-fermenter founded in Oregon in 1988, as one of America’s first microbreweries. Rogue has won over 1,800 awards for taste and quality and is available in all 50 states and 50 countries. Since 2008, Rogue has remained committed to saving the terroir of Oregon hops and barley, one acre at a time, by growing its own.
Voodoo Doughnuts is the brainchild of old friends and entertainment-minded Portlanders Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson and Richard “Tres” Shannon. In 2000, Cat Daddy and Tres decided to embark on a shared entrepreneurial venture–something that combined quality hospitality with their daring do-it-yourself brand of show business. Voodoo Doughnut now boasts of six locations: four found in Oregon, one in Denver, CO, and a brand-new international outlet in Taipei City, Taiwan.
