HooDoo Choo Choo Beer Train

Craft beer, fine food by Lavelle’s Bistro, and beautiful scenery, Oct. 18.

For the first time, we’ve partnered with the Alaska Railroad and Lavelle’s Bistro to offer beer enthusiasts an evening of Oktoberfest-style fun aboard the HooDoo Choo Choo beer train. The train will depart at 4 p.m. Oct. 18 for an evening of brew sampling aboard a round trip rail journey to Nenana.

The HooDoo Choo Choo offers passengers the atmosphere of a beer festival in a truly unique setting: traveling through Interior Alaska aboard the Alaska Railroad. The experience is completed with HooDoo Brewing Co. specialty brews, hors d’oeuvres from Lavelle’s Bistro and a fun crowd of beer connoisseurs.

“We’ve wanted to do a special train in Fairbanks for some time, and are excited to make it happen with Lavelle’s and HooDoo,” said Bruce LaLonde, Alaska Railroad director of guest services and passenger marketing. “We’ve had some fun with the name, but guests will find this train is serious about great brews and food.”

The HooDoo Choo Choo departs from the Fairbanks Depot at 4 p.m. and returns at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $169 per person and include round-trip travel to Nenana, light fare and six half-pint beer samples. Additional brews will be available for purchase. You must be 21 or over to purchase a ticket.
