Whether you are a fan of The Great Grape Ape cartoon show back in the 1970s, the villainous comic book legend Monsieur Mallah, or maybe you just like your beer to taste like doughnuts—something that would make Homer Simpson slobber—either way, Rogue Ales has another thoughtful beer for you to chew on.

NEWPORT, OR—Rogue Ales announces the release of Voodoo Doughnut Grape Guerrilla Ale, the sixth in its line of doughnut-inspired beers.

And yes, before you ask—this is a real thing.

Voodoo Doughnut Grape Guerrilla Ale is based on Voodoo’s Grape Ape, a raised-yeast doughnut with vanilla frosting, grape dust and lavender sprinkles. In this collision of crazies, Rogue Ales and Voodoo Doughnut continue to rally in their fight against boring beer.

“Rogue approached us six 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 great ever since,” says Voodoo Doughnut co-founder Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson.


“The beer is fantastic. It’s got a great grape essence and doesn’t taste like cough syrup. It’s grape in a great way,” says Rogue president Brett Joyce.

Voodoo Doughnut Grape Guerrilla Ale is available in serigraphed pretty in pink-painted 750-milliliter bottles worldwide beginning in November of 2016.
