Celebrate American Craft Beer Week at HooDoo!

American Craft Beer Week is here! Join us for fun events, awesome beer releases, great food, and a good, local vibe. All week, we’ll have a different food vendor each day in the Biergarten that will kick off our rotating summer food truck schedule. ACBW is seven-days dedicated to celebrating the ever advancing beer culture here in the U.S. – and Fairbanksans get to participate!

At this celebration, we also feature a local artist for a commemorative poster and t-shirt. This year’s artist is Jennifer Moss. Jennifer is an Fairbanksan who does beautiful art that’s inspired by our natural surroundings. We are excited to showcase her work!

Do Yoga in the Brewery with our Yoga On Tap Series

Bend for your beer and have a post-session pint! Thanks to the wonderful folks at Heart Stream Yoga and TRAX Yoga, we have a fun, 6-session Yoga On Tap series planned so you can get your BeerAsanas on.

Whether you are new to yoga, or are a seasoned yogi practicing in the quiet Taproom while the beer bubbles away offers a different experience. Every second Saturday, a talented local instructor will guide you through a session.

It’s just a $10 drop-in fee. 100% of the money will go to a local charity, and we’ll decide which organization as a group. After class, you can grab a pint if you’d like, and hang out before the Taproom opens to the public at 11am.
