Where to Find HooDoo on Tap

Our Rotating Selection of Craft Beers and Ales

GERMAN KÖLSCH

GERMAN KÖLSCH

Taste: Crisp, Smooth, European

German Malt, German Hops, German brewing process. Our German Kölsch is a testament to simplicity, tradition and quality. Using the same malt, hops, and process as a brewery in Cologne, Germany (where Kölsch originates), we strived to replicate the style in every way possible. 4-Pack tallboys available in the Taproom to-go.

ABV: 5.1% // IBU: 25 // OG: 11.9

Available to enjoy in the Biergarten, or to go in 5-gallon kegs, growlers, and 4-packs of 16oz cans.

BAVARIAN WEISSBIER

BAVARIAN WEISSBIER

Taste: Banana, Clove, Bready

Summer is in full swing and few beers are more appropriate than our Bavarian Weissbier brewed in the German tradition. Crisp, effervescent, and refreshing, all while carrying with it a richness that only the finest German barley and wheat malts can provide. On top of these fantastic ingredients, the true star in the Weissbier is the yeast: This strain has been used in Germany for centuries.

ABV: 5.2% // IBU: 26 // OG: 12.1

Available to enjoy in the Biergarten, or to go in growlers, and 4-packs of 16oz cans.

German Helles

German Helles

Taste: Pale, Bready, Malty-Sweet

Helles means “bright” or “pale” in German and is the most popular every day beer in the old country. First brewed in Munich in the late 1800’s to compete with the increasing popularity of the Czech Pilsner, Helles is a clean and crisp lager, perfect for every occasion. Helles is comparable to a Pilsner with its crisp noble hop bit, but is a bit more malt focused, with bready, toasty notes to balance.

ABV: 4.7% // IBU: 21 // OG: 11.9

Available to enjoy in the Biergarten, or to go in 5-gallon kegs, growlers, and 4-packs of 16oz cans.

MAIBOCK LAGER

MAIBOCK LAGER

Taste: Rich, Malty, Clean

Goodbye winter – Hello summer! Celebrate the change of seasons the way the Germans do. This annual release was traditionally brewed according to the Bavarian Beer Purity Law of 1516 (Reinheitsgebot) on our steam fired, German style, 3-vessel brewhouse. After fermentation the beer was cold-conditioned (lagered) in our cellar at 32°F for several weeks. HooDoo Maibock Lager pours a bright golden color, with a creamy white head on top. The finest German barley malts lend the beer notes of honey and clean malt, while Hallertauer Hersbruker hops provide just enough bitterness and hop flavor to balance the beer perfectly.

ABV: 6.4% // IBU: 32 // OG: 15.2

 

GERMAN GOSE

GERMAN GOSE

Taste: Tart, Citrus, Salt

First brewed in the early 13th Century in Goslar, Germany, this light and tart wheat beer is “kettle-soured” by steeping raw pilsner malt in the warm wort before boiling. After souring for approximately 24 hours, the wort is boiled, then coriander is added during the whirlpool. After fermentation, natural sea salt is added.

ABV: 4.7% // IBU: 5 // OG: 11.6

Available to enjoy in the Biergarten, or to go in 5-gallon kegs, growlers, and 4-packs of 16oz cans.

CZECH PILSNER

CZECH PILSNER

Taste: Clean, Refreshing, Spicy

The year was 1842.  The location – Pilsen, Czech Republic.  Brewer Josef Groll brewed the worlds first golden colored “Pilsner” lager and changed the world of beer forever.  With only a single malt, and single hop used, the Pilsner beer style is simple and telling – it is a clean canvas where the brewer’s heart, passion, and skill are showcased.  HooDoo Czech Pilsner is brewed with characterful Bohemian Pilsner barley malt, and hopped with spicy Czech-grown Saaz hops.  After fermentation with our favorite lager yeast strain, the beer was cold conditioned in our cellar for months.

ABV: 4.8% // IBU: 38 // OG: 11.0

 

CREAM ALE

CREAM ALE

Taste: Light, Clean, Sessionable

Best described as a “lawn mower beer”, HooDoo Cream Ale is brewed to be light, simple, and very refreshing. This American style of beer first appeared in the mid-1800s in many locations around the country, and during the thirteen years of prohibition, many Canadian breweries took up the style. Even though the name suggests it, this beer contains no dairy products – just pure water, American 2-row, honey malt, and biscuit malt and a dash of Saaz hops to balance. Bring on the lawn mower!

ABV: 4.8% // IBU: 14 // OG: 10.5

 

SCOTTISH EXPORT

SCOTTISH EXPORT

Taste: Sweet, Caramel, Earthy

This is our take on the strongest of the Scottish Ales.  Rich and malty, but clean and dry, these beers often take on a slight peat smoke character.  In addition to the nine varieties of Scottish, English, and Belgian malts, we included a small portion of peat smoked malt to the grist for a hint of earthy smoke flavor.

ABV: 6.3% // IBU: 26 // OG: 15.6

 

OKTOBERFEST LAGER 2022

OKTOBERFEST LAGER 2022

Taste: Malty, Rich, Toasty

HooDoo Oktoberfest is brewed just once a year in accordance with Reinheitsgebot using all German ingredients. Thanks to our unique German-style brewhouse, we can perform a traditional step-mashing regime to further exemplify the style. It has a rich and malty aroma that can only come from 100% German pilsner malted barley. With a smooth, clean flavor that only a fine lager can deliver, this beer is all about the malts. PROST!!

Lightly hopped with Golding hops – this beer pairs best with sunshine and blue skies! Al’boune fosse!

ABV: 5.6% // IBU: 28 // OG: 11.4

 

NEW ENGLAND IPA

NEW ENGLAND IPA

Taste: Tropical, Juicy, Fruity

Also known as Hazy or Juicy IPA, this sub-style of India Pale Ale tends to focus more on hop flavor, aroma, and mouthfeel, and less on bitterness and appearance. In our latest interpretation of the style we increased the proportion of rolled oats and malted wheat in the grist and hopped heavily in the boil kettle with El Dorado and Amarillo hops. After fermenting with an English ale yeast, we dry-hopped this beauty with tropical Citra hops.

ABV: 7.1% // IBU: 18 // OG: 16.3

Available to enjoy in the Biergarten, or to go in 5-gallon kegs, growlers, and 4-packs of 16oz cans.

CENTENNIAL ESB

Taste: Toasty, Malty, Resinous

First brewed to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of UAF, this beer is made with malts from the Pacific Northwest, Germany, Belgium, and England. Centennial and Strata hops provide dank, citrus notes and balance the beer with a distinct lingering bitterness. The classic English ESB yeast strain used to ferment the wort leaves the brew clean and refreshing. Cheers!

ABV: 4.9% // IBU: 49 // OG: 11.0 

 

AMERICAN IPA

AMERICAN IPA

Taste: Floral, Citrus, Balanced

Belgian IPA

Belgian IPA

Taste: Bubblegum, Pine, Tropical

This hybrid beer was brewed in collaboration with the Pink Boots Society of Alaska. A grain bill of the finest malted barley, wheat, and oats from Germany and the US – paired with a heavy late-kettle hopping with a special Pink Boots Hop Blend. After fermentation by a beautiful Belgian yeast strain, the beer was dry hopped with even more of the Pink Boots Hop Blend. The resulting beer is delicious: bubblegum, piney, tropical notes from the hops mingle with phenolic, spicy, fruity esters from the Belgian yeast.

ABV: 7.1% // IBU: 32 // OG: 16.3

 

UK IPA

UK IPA

Taste: Light, Clean, Sessionable

Brewed in the style of an English IPA from the 1800’s, our UK IPA is distinctly English. A simple malt bill of 100% English Maris Otter malted barely lends the beer a complex but simple base that perfectly carries the distinct flavor and aroma of East Kent Golding hops. Goldings have been cultivated since the mid-1700s and are revered for their sweet, fruity contributions of English Ales. Cheers!

Taste: Pear, Banana, Oak

This year for our 21:49 release, we brewed a brand new Belgian Tripel, clocking in at 12.4% ABV. We tried an interesting Belgian yeast strain this time around, and we love the result! Light banana and pear esters on a rich malt base compliment a refreshing, dry finish – but with a surprisingly full, satisfying body.
