Many cities now host “beer weeks”—Denver, Seattle, Portland, Boston, San Diego and San Francisco to name a few, now Fairbanks, Alaska is in the mix!
We’re excited to announce our involvement in Alaska Beer Week, 10 days designated to celebrate delicious craft beer. Get ready! Alaska Beer Week runs Friday January 11 through Sunday January 20, 2013.
“Other cities across the country have had craft beer week celebrations for many years, but this is the first time Fairbanks has the chance to get in the mix,” said Bobby Wilken, Owner and Head Brewer at HooDoo Brewing Co. “Our goal is to educate Fairbanksans and visitors about craft beer and help them appreciate the vibrant and delicious local scene that’s right here in their own back yard.”
