Press Release: Barrel-Aged Voodoo Big Black Voodoo Daddy, Black Magick Coming in 2012
Posted Friday, February 3rd, 2012 by Tip Top

 

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy(Meadville, PA) – We here at Voodoo Brewing Company have taken over fifteen years of Matt’s brewing experience and our quirky personalities and wrapped it up into a line of beers that we feel are fun, flavorful and thought-provoking. In that same mentality, we are extremely proud to announce a bevy of new variations of some of our favorite beers.

Gran Met, long a cult favorite, is seeing barrel treatment for the first time. This tripel has been delicately aging in two carefully selected barrels to not only enhance the beer’s unique flavor profile, but also impart what we feel are interesting additions in flavor from the liquor aged oak. Two variations will be available, one aged in Laird’s Apple Brandy barrels and the other in Buffalo Trace.

Big Black Voodoo Daddy, perhaps our most popular and widely acclaimed offering, is also resting in oak for the first time. We have selected Buffalo Trace and Pappy Van Winkle barrels to hold this sleeping imperial stout. Rich in notes of chocolate, roasted coffee, dark fruits, and vanilla, the oak and bourbon impart their own plethora of flavors to create an even more complex and robust profile.

Voodoo Black MajickBlack Magick, the crowned jewel of imperial stouts, will also be seeing different barrel treatments for this year’s release. After utilizing Elijah Craig barrels for the 2009 release and Buffalo Trace for the 2011 release, we have decided to expand the treatments to not only showcase the depth and diversity of this big, juicy, smooth stout, but to also spotlight what we feel are thoughtful considerations in the way the beer harmonizes with the different barrels treatments. We have selected Laird’s Apple Brandy, Buffalo Trace, and Pappy Van Winkle barrels to hold this menacingly dark elixir.

These beers will not see distribution and will be released at two different locations. One release will take place in our new brewpub in Meadville. The other will take part in Eastern Pennsylvania. Philadelphia is one of our premier distribution locations and as a show of our appreciation for all your support in the community, in conjunction with Bella Vista Distributors, Philadelphia has been chosen as the second location.

When confronted with choosing a location to host the Philadelphia release of these new barrel aged beers, we wanted to ensure it was done in the fairest way possible and from that came the Philly Voodoo Barrel Aged Release Competition. All accounts located in the Bella Vista footprint with “R” and “E” licenses may participate. The competition is simple, whichever eligible location purchases and sells the most Voodoo product between January 1st and the end of Philly Beer Week 2012 will be declared the winner and will be announced at the commencement of Philly Beer Week.

There will be various amounts of each product available for the Philly release depending on our yield, but rest assured it will be worthwhile! The crew from Voodoo will be present on the big day and will work out all pricing and logistics with the winning venue. There’s still plenty of time to get involved in this event, so do not hesitate to get started. A large order of Big Black Voodoo Daddy was just shipped to Bella Vista, so an easy way to start out is by adding some cases to your next order! Thank you for your time, support and participation!
