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.

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

Available to enjoy by the glass, 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: 4.9% // IBU: 10 // OG: 11.6

 

 

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: 5.3% // IBU: 5 // OG: 11.8

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

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: 5.1% // IBU: 14 // OG: 11.2

BELGIAN SAISON

BELGIAN SAISON

Taste: Fruity, Tart, Dry

A traditional seasonal summer style from Wallonia – the french speaking part of Belgium. The grain bill consists of three grains: barley, wheat and oats – including a pinch of acidulated malt to lend a tartness to the beer. 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

 

EXTRA PALE ALE

EXTRA PALE ALE

Taste: Tangerine, Silky, Tropical

Hops ahead!  Supported on a light base of two row barley malt, select caramel malts, and rolled oats, our XPA is packed full of heady hop flavor and aroma from Amarillo and Kohatu hop varieties in the boil kettle, then double dry hopped with tropical Zamba and Citra hops.

ABV: 5.6% // IBU: 41 // OG: 12.2

 

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 Amarillo hops. After fermenting with an English ale yeast, we dry-hopped this beauty with tropical Citra hops.

ABV: 6.4% // IBU: 18 // OG: 15.7

 

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

AMERICAN IPA

AMERICAN IPA

Taste: Floral, Citrus, Balanced

Our IPA has a juicy backbone of Northwest US pale and crystal malts. Big floral and citrus hop aroma and flavor balance out the delicious malty base. A true-to-style American IPA.

ABV: 7.2% // IBU: 73 // OG: 16.5

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

CENTENNIAL ESB

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. A complex hop bill includes Oregon grown Horizon, Strata, and Centennials used in the boil, then a hefty dry-hop after fermentation of Cryo Cascade and Strata hops from Washington. The classic English ESB yeast strain used to ferment the wort leaves this brew clean, refreshing, and beautifully crystal clear. Cheers!

ABV: 5.7% // IBU: 49 // OG: 12.6 

 

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: 6.4% // IBU: 26 // OG: 14.7

 

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. PROST!!

ABV: 6.2% // IBU: 32 // OG: 15.0

 

DUNKELWEISS

DUNKELWEISS

Taste: Clove, Grainy, Well-Rounded

A dark (dunkel) colored version of our Bavarian Weissbier, HooDoo Dunkelweiss is a smooth and refreshing cold weather treat.  Pale wheat malt from Bamburg, Germany along with a few carefully selected specialty grains from Briess Malting in Wisconsin provide a few sturdy platform for our celebrated Bavarian wheat yeast to show off it’s fruity, spicy character.  Recommended pairing: A crackling bon-fire and good company!

ABV: 4.8% // IBU: 10 // OG: 11.4

 

VANILLA PORTER

VANILLA PORTER

Taste: Vanilla, Chocolate, Caramel

A rich base of English Maris Otter pale malt, layered with 7 specialty malts from England, Belgium and the US to create this distinctive and unique Porter.  After fermentation, we aged the beer on the finest Madagascar Vanilla beans to add an elegant and rich dimension.  The heady aroma draws you in to take a sip and from there the beer unfolds it’s layers of complexity.  An English ale yeast compliments the malt and vanilla flavors with a characterful nuttiness.  The beer finishes with a light roastiness and a hint of vanilla to balance.

ABV: 5.6% // IBU: 20 // OG: 14.2

Winter Solstice
Sunrise: 10:58am
Sunset: 2:39pm
Length of day: 3 hours 41 minutes

Winter Solstice is a time of celebration for northern dwellers such as us, and it is yet another great reason to celebrate the good life in Fairbanks, Alaska.  It’s dark and cold, but the days only get longer from here, so let’s have a beer!

What to do when it’s chilly and dim?  Well, a year ago we brewed a new Imperial Oatmeal Stout – fermented it in stainless then moved it into Buffalo Trace Bourbon barrels for a year of rest.  Throughout the craziness of 2020 this big, sticky stout has been tucked into the back of the brewery, breathing in and out of the charred, whiskey soaked oak, lending big vanilla and coconut notes, along with bringing a warming bourbon kick to the pallet.  Clocking in at an enjoyable 11.0% ABV, this beer is a delicious winter solstice treat this year, and is a perfect candidate to put in the cellar and enjoy months or years in the future.

ABV: 11.0% // IBU: 48 // OG: 24.1

Delicious Weyermann malts lend the beer a sweet and satisfying malt character, a hefty dose of Belgian Candi Sugar kicks the ABV up to 11.1%, rolled oats add a smooth, creamy dimension, and of course delicious US and German hops for a balancing bitterness. All of this tasty goodness fermented with a classic Belgian Trappist yeast – delectable!

Available by the bottle or case (12 bottles per case).  **Limit two cases per customer**

21:49 BARREL AGED BGS

21:49 BARREL AGED BGS

Taste: Dry, Mellow, Oak

To celebrate the summer solstice in Fairbanks – a day lasting 21 hours and 49 minutes from sunrise to sunset – we filled two freshly emptied French Oak Chardonnay barrels with our Belgian Golden Strong and let it breathe into and out of the wood for two months in our Taproom.  This aging added additional dimensions of spice, vanilla, and wood.

BELGIAN PALE ALE
