Delicious HooDoo Craft Beers

Delicious Freshly Brewed Beer

When it comes to beer – fresher is better, and nothing is fresher than locally brewed beer.  HooDoo Brewing Company makes beers of the highest quality from the world’s best ingredients.

Our brewery has been designed and built to brew classic English, German, Belgian and American beer styles.  You won’t find quirky names, or labels for our beers. We like to keep it simple – brew quality beers, with the best ingredients money can buy, keeping tradition in mind. While we are probably best known for our Kölsch or our American IPA, we have a variety of seasonal releases that just about please any palate.

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

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!

BELGIAN WITBIER

BELGIAN WITBIER

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.
