Rogue’s second VooDoo Doughnut beer should be popping up at your favorite beer spots shortly if not already. VooDoo Doughnut Chocolate, Peanut butter, and Banana Ale is the latest tribute to Portland’s Voo Doo Doughnut Shop, which features specialty doughnuts such as a maple bacon bar (which inspired Rogue’s first beer, Maple Bacon Porter), doughnuts with Captain Crunch on top, and doughnuts dipped in everything from bubblegum dust to tang. After the original Maple Bacon Porter receiving mixed reviews, let’s hope that this crazy concoction pleases the palate. Below is the donut the beer is inspired by…

Terrapin’s Liquid Bliss Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter should arrive in stores this week. Bliss, aka Side Project #18 by the Athens, Georgia brewery is first time brewmaster “Spike” and crew have released a beer like this this. It took some time to get the recipe right when brewing with peanuts & peanut butter.
Rogue Ales (Newport, OR) made a real splash in the beer world when then unveiled Voodoo Donut Ale. In honor of a Portland Oregon based Voodoo Donuts breaking the world record for largest box of donuts (666 lbs), the brewery made the first Voodoo Doughnut ale- Maple Bacon Porter. Brewed with real bacon, maple syrup, smoked malt, and vanilla beans. I believe there were even media kits running around that had a pink condom in it.
Looks like another edition is on the horizon – Voodoo Donut Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana. By the looks of it, this beer is modeled after the Memphis Mafia donut. (Elvis inspired? See below.) As it’s predecessor, looks like big painted pink bottles again for this edition.

The little bit of sexy above is the Terrapin Beer Co label for Liquid Bliss, Side Project #18. Due out in November, this chocolate & peanut butter porter should please your inter fat kid as much as the inner alcoholic.
Melt into another dimension with Terrapin’s newest Side Project… “Liquid Bliss”. This chocolate, peanut-butter porter concoction flows like a river of self-indulgent righteousness deep into the depths of your innermost childhood memory. Turn on, tune in, and drop out of this world for a tongue tripping experience of flavors never before so eloquently combined in a liquid or solid form.
