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
Taste: Pepper, Honey, Orange
Brewed to celebrate the summer solstice in Fairbanks – a day lasting 21 hours and 49 minutes from sunrise to sunset – HooDoo Belgian Tripel is a beautiful, deep golden color with a pillowy head. 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!
ABV: 11.1% // IBU: 32 // OG: 23.9
Available by the bottle or case (12 bottles per case). **Limit two cases per customer**
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.
ABV: 8.4% // IBU: 30 // OG: 18.4
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.
ABV: 6.3% // IBU: 26 // OG: 15.3
Taste: Dry, Fruity, Effervescent
A complex marriage of fruity, spicy and alcohol flavors over a soft base of pilsner malt, noble hops, and Belgian Candi Sugar. Pale and demure with a beckoning sparkle and aroma, it’s dryness and drinkability is unassuming…and sinister.
ABV: 8.4% // IBU: 30 // OG: 18.4
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: 5.6% // IBU: 22 // 0G: 13.7
Taste: Caramel, Rustic, Toasty
A true American West Coast original. Full-bodied but sessionable, this beer has a number of unique qualities that come together in a delicious way. Toasty flavors create a stable base to support the heavy dosing of German Northern Brewer hops in the boil.
ABV: 4.9% // IBU: 48 // OG: 11.6
Taste: Citrus, Grapefruit, Pine
Ah hops…the spice of beer. Each variety has it’s own flavor, aroma, and bitterness qualities. This sessionable ale has a lightly sweet malt base, supporting the beauty of the Cascade hop variety.
ABV: 5.2% // IBU: 48 // OG: 12.2
Taste: Fruity, Grassy, Refreshing
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 barley lends the beer a complex but simple base that perfectly carries the distinct flavor and aroma of Golding hops. Goldings have been cultivated since the mid-1700s and are revered for their sweet, fruity contributions to English Ales. Cheers!
ABV: 6.9% // IBU: 67 // OG: 16.0
Taste: Refreshing, Orange, Elegant
This style of Belgian beer has been produced for hundreds of years, and it all but died out in the 1950’s – until Pierre Celis revived the style with Hoegaarden Witbier. A three grain ale consisting of barley, wheat, and oats, this light and refreshing beer also has a subtle citrus flavor and aroma, due to a cracked coriander and bitter orange peel steep at the end of the boil.
ABV: 5.0% // IBU: 18 // OG: 11.6
Available to enjoy in the Biergarten, or to go in 5-gallon kegs and growlers.
