Voodoo / Lavery DULAvibes

Formerly brewed at Voodoo Brewing Co.
Meadville, Pennsylvania USA
10.3% · Imperial IPA · 3 Ratings · Special Release ·
DULAvibes is the long awaited collaboration beer between Voodoo Brewery of Meadville, PA and Lavery Brewing of Erie, PA brewed especially for Philly Beer Week 2014. Although fairly new to Voodoo’s portfolio, Good Vibes has become an instant favorite with customers far and wide and become their best selling beer at their pub. Likewise, DULACHAN was Lavery’s first canned beer and has been one of their most popular beers ever since. As a result, DULAvibes was born. We took the best parts of both beers and smashed them up into one of the biggest and hoppiest IPAs around. This golden colored west coast style IPA weighs in at 10.3% ABV and was hopped 5 times in the kettle with copious amounts of New Zealand Waimea and Australian Galaxy. Then, we added two massive dry hops. The end result is a big, flavorful and aromatic IPA that drinks like a beer half its size. Look for it around Philadelphia during beer week. We hope you enjoy DULAvibes as much as we did brewing it together.
