Rogue Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ale

Rogue Voodoo Donut Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ale

Rogue Ales’ first Voodoo Donuts collaboration, called Bacon Maple Ale, was met with… mixed reviews.

Their new collaboration however, called Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ale, sounds like it has some potential, as it aims to match Voodoo’s Memphis Mafia donut.

If you’d like to try to make your own, Rogue is using 2-Row, C-150, C-175, Carafoam Special II, and Chocolate Malts; Rogue Farms Revolution and Independent Hops; Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Banana extract; Pacman Yeast, and Free Range Coastal Water.

For those who just want to pick up a bottle and give it a try, this beer should be hitting store shelves soon, so keep an eye out for this donut inspired concoction.

Duffy’s Brew Treats Your Hair With Beer

Duffy's Brew

Duffy’s Brew is a line of beer-based personal care products, including shampoo and conditioner, that get added nourishing benefits from Elysian Brewing Company’s Dragonstooth Stout.

Apparently beer is good for your hair because:

  • Beer is rich in amino acids that coat and repair each strand of hair.
  • Mineral-rich malt and barley preserve hydration, adding shine.
  • The proteins and Vitamin B add body and volume to hair.
  • Hops and yeast help treat scalp irritations such as dandruff and psoriasis.

In addition, all of the Duffy’s Brew products are sulfate-free, phthalate-free, paraben-free, contain no artificial colors, and are not tested on animals.

It also doesn’t hurt that the bottle design is pretty cool as well.

Beer

The first is simply called Beer, and comes from a shop called Man vs Ink. It walks through the homebrew process, and includes some awesome typography in beer inspired colors.

Know What You Drink

The second is called Know What You Drink, and comes from a shop called Drywell Art. It includes the most popular variations on Hops, Malts and Yeast, and is “both a highly accurate and informative diagram, as well as a bold and colorful piece of art”.

Both will set you back just $25:
