“Good beer, poor setup.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

If you're a beer snob that doesn't mind standing in line for 20 minutes for a glass of beer, this is a place for you. This place is run like a coffee stand instead of a bar. I won't be back until they figure it out.

“Excellent New Craft Brewery Addition to Fairbanks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

Technically this is Fairbanks first craft brewery, and joins the northern most United States brewery in Fox (Silver Gulch) to serve Fairbanks and the northern interior.

The brewer at HooDoo comes from Alaskan Brewing in Juneau and he learned well. This is a small family operation, and you will often see the brewer with his family here.

Alaska has really non-craft brewery friendly tasting/tap room rules and regulations. However, the HooDoo does the best to work within these restrictive rules to create a great environment.

The beers are fantastic. The flight that we had was great! All of them.

This place is also super busy. Plan to get here early and wait in line if you come late. But it is worth the wait. The brewery also has growlers to go.
