New Belgium Voodoo Ranger 1985 Time Machine Sweepstakes

New Belgium Voodoo Ranger 1985 Time Machine Sweepstakes

I just got news about a brief promotion that perhaps you’d be interested in.

It’s got limitations: It’s a delivery promotion available only in nine Chicago ZIP Codes: 60622, 60661, 60610, 60614, 60647, 60651, 60612, 60642, or 60618.

New Belgium Brewing is releasing the latest in its rotating Voodoo Ranger IPA releases. 1985 IPA hit the streets on Wednesday, July 15. “In true Voodoo Ranger fashion,” they say, “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.”

So they can’t mention the name of the vehicle, but they can show pictures like the one above this article with it in the background. Suffice to say it’s a car that was heavily modified for time travel in a 1985 movie. This appears to be the regular stock version of the car. (I just heard back with more details from New Belgium. They will have three cars making deliveries; one of will will have the custom “time travel” design.)

1985 IPA is described by New Belgium as “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.”

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, 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 ten lucky fans will receive their delivery via a gigawatt time machine.

Terms and conditions here. Sorry, you will not be allowed to drive or ride in the delivery vehicle.
