Fairbanks’ Craft Brewery

HooDoo Brewing Co - Fairbanks Alaska - Craft Beer GrowlersWednesday October 31, 2012 was more than just your typical Halloween for some residents of Fairbanks, Alaska. It was also the day that we opened our doors to the public. We sent the notification of our opening through social media. And through the power of the interwebs…we had local beer lovers through the doors exactly at 3pm.

Those who have been following the brewery progress were some of our biggest supporters through the brewery’s construction. Community support, including the comments, likes, and inquiries on Facebook and twitter, kept us motivated during the most challenging times. While we had been telling people all along that we would be open before the snow flies, a Halloween opening was not too far off from that. Fairbanks got it’s first snowfall around October 16.
