Paul, Bobby, and Erick after brewing HooDoo's first batch.

We were very excited to have Alaskan beer enthusiast James “Dr. Fermento” Roberts in Fairbanks and at our brewery for the inaugural brew over Labor Day weekend. He’s been keeping tabs on our progress since catching wind of HooDoo happenings last year, so it was great to get him here to see the operation first hand.

Stay Tuned!

He's a Brewer, not Picasso.

Very early sketches of HooDoo.

We’re preparing to update this area regularly with posts about Brewing at HooDoo, Pilot Beers, more Beer and eventually, this will be the most up-to-date place to see what we are brewing and what is on tap here in the taproom.

So stay tuned (and thirsty)!
Lots of great things to come.

HooDoo Update on Dr. Fermento’s Blog

HooDoo Brewing Co. Bobby Wilken - Fairbanks, Alaska2300 miles. 50mph. We made it up the Cassiar Highway and the Alaska Highway in one piece.

Drink Local: A resolution that goes down easy, By Dr. Fermento

HooDoo Brewing Co. Fairbanks Alaska - Local Fresh BeerIn another great article for the Anchorage Press, Dr. Fermento writes about the importance of drinking local beer whenever possible. Here’s a snippet:

Finally, almost without saying, you should be resolved, easily enough, to expose your out-of-state visitors to the most local beer they can tolerate during their stay. Just in Anchorage, with awesome local venues like Glacier Brewhouse, The Snow Goose Restaurant and Sleeping Lady Brewing Company, Midnight Sun Brewing Company’s Loft and the world famous Moose’s Tooth Pub and Pizzeria within easy distance. Watering and dining your visitors and plying them with everything local is a breeze. Run them out to experience Eagle River Alehouse or Pizza Man nearby, or if they have aspirations to experience Talkeetna, Denali Brewing Company and the attached Twister Creek Restaurant, with all of Denali’s fine beers on tap, is easy pickings. Further north, there’s the great pub at Silver Gulch Brewing Company in Fox, and by mid-2012, drag them through what’s perhaps Alaska’s upcoming newest brewing company, HooDoo in Fairbanks.
