IPA Day at HooDoo Brewing Co.

IPA Day at HooDoo Brewing Co.

Celebrate National IPA Day at HooDoo Brewing Co. in Fairbanks, Alaska!

To celebrate national IPA Day in the HooDoo taproom, $1 of every pint or growler fill of IPA will be donated to the Bread Line & Stone Soup Cafe.  This is a great opportunity for our community to combine forces by drinking one of craft beer’s most iconic styles, while doing a little something good for an important local charity. Drink and give, baby!

Also, Bobby Wilken, Head Brewmaster, will hold a special Brewmaster’s Appreciation Class: All About Hops & IPAs. Students will get schooled on the history of IPA, and the many variations. There will also be an in-depth discussion on hop varieties with plenty of time for Q&A.  The class will be held at 5:30pm, Thursday Aug 1.  $15 includes a pint of IPA and the glass it came in. Sign up by calling the brewery at 459-BEER or by inquiring in the taproom. The class will be capped at 20 people.

PROST! And let’s raise a glass to IPA!


About HooDoo Brewing Co.: HooDoo Brewing Company is the realization of a decade long dream.  Born and raised in Fairbanks, Bobby Wilken first discovered the goodness that is beer while home brewing during college at University of Montana (2002).

After Bobby’s first homebrew batch was bottled up, there was no turning back.  He finished his business degree and went on to the Siebel Institute of Brewing in Chicago and Munich, Germany.  While in Europe, Bobby toured breweries in England, Belgium, and Germany for a closer look at how the world’s best breweries make their delicious beverages. Upon returning to Alaska, he joined the crew at industry pioneer Alaskan Brewing Company in Juneau.  After a couple of years brewing Alaskan’s award winning beers Bobby moved into the laboratory to focus on quality control and recipe development.

HooDoo Brewing Company is the culmination of a journey into the world of beer, and the brews available will be a reflection of this journey.  Fresh, well made, craft beer – brewed in the heart of Alaska.
