DDF Caterpillar Cake: Vault City's Unique Birthday Brew

DDF Caterpillar Cake: A Unique Birthday Celebration by Vault City

Introducing the Decadent DDF Caterpillar Cake Stout

To celebrate their sixth birthday, Vault City – the mad scientists of sour beer – have introduced a unique creation: the double deep-fried caterpillar cake stout, aptly named DDF Caterpillar Cake. Inspired by the ever-popular buggy birthday cake, this new addition will surely excite fans.

What Makes DDF Caterpillar Cake Special?

DDF Caterpillar Cake is not just any beer. With its rich, velvety mouthfeel and indulgent layers of chocolate and vanilla, it’s a vegan-friendly brew you won’t want to miss. Retailing at £9.50 for a 330ml can, it promises to take your taste buds on an adventurous ride.

Available from July 16

If you want to get your hands on the DDF Caterpillar Cake stout, mark your calendars for July 16. Given the success of their previous creation, the Double Deep Fried Mars Bar, which sold out a 5,000-litre batch in under 12 hours, you’ll want to act quickly!

A Bit of Inspiration

The inspiration behind this innovative drink came from a Portobello chip shop that deep-fried a Colin the Caterpillar cake. This sparked some outrage and even a viral tweet! Vault City co-founder Steven Smith-Hay decided to embrace this whimsical idea and turn it into a delightful birthday treat.

Why Vault City Is So Popular

Vault City is renowned for their boundary-pushing and accessible drinks. Their offerings include exciting flavors such as Strawberry Banana Milkshake, Raspberry Blueberry Bubblegum, Jaffa Cakes, and Iron Brew. The DDF Caterpillar Cake is a proud addition to this vibrant lineup, showcasing their unending creativity.

The Bigger Picture: Vault City’s Growth

Earlier this year, Vault City announced plans to move into a new home seven times the size of their previous brewery in Portobello. Funded by their diehard fans, this move to BioCampus in Edinburgh will allow them to produce more than 10 million litres of beer per year.

Consumer Trends and Experimentation

Research by Vault City revealed that about a third of UK drinkers are more experimental with their drink choices now than before the lockdown began in March 2020. Currently, more than a third of sour beers consumed in the UK are produced by Vault City, highlighting their significant impact on the market.
