  • This is a nice brewery with a broad selection of beer. The flight of beer are the best way to get a feel for the different brews. There were everything from a very light tasting pilsner to a hardy sto...  more »

  • What a great space/idea/atmosphere. The beer is so good (there is a two pint limit because of state law) that you won’t want to leave. The outdoor space is very Alaskan and the fire is perfect on a co...  more »

  • Great brewery and beautiful seating. Good selection and rotation of beers. Outdoor seating area is beautiful and inviting. Love that you can taste the new beers before you decide to purchase. Servers are great and friendly.
  • The beer here is amazing, and food trucks never disappoint! Hoodoo staff is always happy to see you and more than willing to let you taste any beer for free in case you're not sure about one. Plus, it's such a reasonable price.
  • Great place. Nice beer and decent prices. The IPA is good and the pale ale also. Free fast wifi. The also sell nice tshirt and stickers. Friendly staff
  • In town doing some temporary duty with the Air National Guard and wanted to check the place out, and some beer in a relatively quiet setting before the Friday crowd arrived. Nope. Turns out I was 4 minutes early (I'm use to breweries being open much earlier, especially on Fridays) and was somewhat rudely told they weren't open yet (probably shouldn't leave doors OPEN if you don't want people wandering in looking for beer). If you can't handle someone patiently waiting in the taproom, leave the doors closed. Also, there was apparently a line forming at the other entrance on the side of the building – a less obvious main entrance – and when I was told they are now open, there was a herd of people coming in through there. After waiting 5 minutes in front of a open door, I wasn't in the mood to stand in another line for 10-15 more just to try beer that may be mediocre (I had one of there beers before and was not overly impressed). Disclosure: I am a professional brewer that's brewed GABF gold medal winning beer and have been to hundreds of breweries around the world—the bar is pretty high for me. I had hoped to talk with the folks there and check out their setup, but if they were too busy, I had at least planned on sitting down and going over some plans for a new brewhouse with the manufacturer via phone. This doesn't seems to be one of the more quiet taprooms with the crowds and music, so not the best environment for a calm conversation with friends or colleagues over beer—at least not at 3pm on a Friday (more reason to open earlier on busy days). I'd like to give them another shot, but I'm not going to be in town that much longer and this experience kinda left a bad taste in my mouth for them. Will just go to Brown Jug and buy some beer from well-know world-class breweries instead.
  • First experience in a brewery and loved it. The root beer was great and Bob's Weiss was really good
