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.

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, but is a bit more malt focused, with bready, toasty notes to balance.

ABV: 4.9% // IBU: 21 // 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: 4.8% // IBU: 14 // OG: 10.5

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

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.

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.

BELGIAN PALE ALE

BELGIAN PALE ALE

Taste: Pear, Biscuit, Nutty

Considered an “everyday” beer in the Flemish provinces of Antwerp and Brabant, this sessionable Belgian Ale is focused on biscuity, toasty malt flavors and aromas along with fruit and spicy flavors derived from the yeast. Throw in a subtle, clean bitterness from East Kent Golding hops and you can taste why this smooth and balanced style has been a Belgian staple in Belgium for well over 300 years.

ABV: 5.3% // IBU: 22 // 0G: 13.6 

ENGLISH MILD

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: 6.5% // IBU: 32 // OG: 15.7

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

RAUCHBIER

RAUCHBIER

Taste: Smoke, Toast, Malty

As an homage to one of the brewmaster’s favorite beers, we bring you this delicious smoked lager or, Rauchbier. As with all of our German-style beers, the entire grain bill is brought to Fairbanks from Weyermann Malting in Bamburg, Germany. One third of the malted barley, called “rauchmalt” is kilned over an open beechwood smoke fire, lending a smooth, sweet, smokey character to this clean, drinkable lager.

ABV: 4.9% // IBU: 45 // OG: 11.1

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

OKTOBERFEST LAGER

OKTOBERFEST LAGER

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!!

ABV: 5.7% // IBU: 22 // OG: 13.5

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

Pink Boots Brut IPA

Pink Boots Brut IPA

Taste: Dry, Tropical, Effervescent

This Brut IPA began with two simple ingredients in the mash tun: The finest, lightest pilsner malt sourced from the heart of Germany, along with light and delicate jasmine rice. By mashing with the help of a naturally derived enzyme, we are able to convert all of the starch into fermentable sugar, which a blend of Norwegian Kviek ale yeast strains happily gobbled up, leading to an extremely dry beer. The Pink Boots hop blend was utilized heavily in the kettle, followed by a hefty dry hop after fermentation leading to a heady citrus, herbal aroma and flavor.

ABV: 7.2% // IBU: 32 // OG: 13.1

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

 

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 and El Dorado 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.

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!

ABV: 7.1% // IBU: 67 // OG: 15.6

 

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 from the classic Centennial hop variety balance out the delicious malty base. A true-to-style American IPA

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

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.

2023 3:41 Barrel Aged Imperial Stout

2023 21:49 BELGIAN QUADRUPLE

Taste: Caramel, Vanilla, Black Pepper

To celebrate the summer solstice in Fairbanks – a day lasting 21 hours and 49 minutes from sunrise to sunset – we filled four freshly emptied Texas Sotol barrels with a high-test Belgian Quad and let it breathe into and out of the wood for a few months. Sotol is a wild foraged spirit and can be compared in flavor to tequila.

ABV: 14.1% // IBU: 26 // OG: 25.2

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

2024 Barrel Aged Barleywine

2024 Barrel Aged Barleywine

ANNIVERSARY PUMPKIN ALE

ANNIVERSARY PUMPKIN ALE

Taste: Full-Bodied, Complex, Spiced

“Pumpkin pie in a glass” HooDoo Pumpkin Ale is made with one hundred pounds of locally grown pumpkins and subtly spiced during the boil with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves. Upon first sip, an up-front spice is immediately supported by a creamy, complex, sweetness. The spices give way to rich maltiness before the beer finishes clean, but full-bodied. Cheers to ELEVEN amazing years!

ABV: 7.0% // IBU: 42 // OG: 16.3

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

 

California Common

California Common

Taste: Caramel, Rustic, Toasty

A true American West Coast original.  Full-bodied but very drinkable, this beer has a number of unique qualities that come together in a delicious way.  A variety of caramel malts bring complex, toasty flavors which create a stable base to support the heavy dosing of German Northern Brewer hops in the boil.  These hops contribute a unique minty, woody flavor.  The wort is then fermented into beer with a clean lager yeast, but at ale temperatures.

ABV: 4.9% // IBU: 34 // OG: 11.5

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

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
