My new favorite brew spot. We have a few others that I've mentioned here before like the Silver Gulch. But most of their in house brewed stuff is very weak for my taste.
Hoodoo however hits the spot. They seem to focus more on German and Belgium style like beers which I find to be a bit more filling (except their Kolsch), heavier in flavor and just all around leave you feeling warm and fuzzy. I fell in love with this new brewery back in October with their Oktoberfest beer that sold out the first week of October!
Their current lineup (which I've tried all of
German Kölsch (Very clean, refreshing and for me a great starter)
Taste: Crisp, Smooth, Fresh, European
German Malt, German Hops, German brewing process. Using the same
malt, hops, and process as a brewery in Cologne, Germany (where Kölsch
originates), we strived to replicate the style in every way possible.
ABV: 5.1% // IBU: 25 // OG: 11.9
Belgian Saison (Great flavor and the yeasty bit sticks with you between drinks)
Taste: Pepper, Lemon, Fresh
A traditional farmhouse ale, complex in style but easy to drink. Fruity
and spicy in aroma and flavor, with yummy earthy yeast tones. Dry, tart
ABV: 5.9% // IBU: 19 // OG: 13.05
English Mild (I could imagine sitting in an English pub downing one after another, enjoyed the roasted nutty after flavor)
Taste: Nutty, English, Sessionable
The HooDoo Mild is our take on an English-style bitter – a classic UK
session beer. Often called “sessionable” because of the ease of
consuming several in a single setting, ours is made with English Maris
Otter malt, is naturally carbonated, and drinks clean and crisp, with a
subtle complex malt flavor (that just might leave you craving more).
ABV: 4.1% // IBU: 15 // OG: 10.1
American IPA (While very bitter, it doesn't linger too long like some IPAs, very bright beer)
Taste: Floral, Citrus, Balanced
Our IPA has a juicy backbone of Northwest US pale and crystal malts. Big
floral and citrus hop aroma and flavor balance out the delicious malty
ABV: 7.2% // IBU: 73 // OG: 16.5
Belgian Tripel (Wasn't nearly as sweet as I thought it would be, but VERY smooth. Didn't get a "pepper feel from it either, so I think this is one I'd have to try again. I had some of the wife's but not my own)
Taste: Bubblegum, Pepper, Dry
HooDoo Tripel is a strong, effervescent ale brewed in the Belgian tradition. One of the strongest styles of Belgian beer, Tripel is deceiving in its light color, and inviting with its aroma and candy-like sweetness. Made with only the finest European malts, fermentable sugars are also derived from an addition of Belgian Candi Sugar during the boil. Clean, dry finish.
ABV: 8.3% // IBU: 30 // OG: 18.1
HooDoo Stout (I've got a love/hate relationship with Stouts. They either are amazing or crap. This is the former without a doubt! The combination of creamy chocolaty coffee in one is something a lot of stouts go for, but few really pull it off. Distinguishing between the Coffee and Cocoa flavors was very noticeable for me. For me most stouts hit hard on the first drink and then mellow out, this did not. Also by the time stouts warm up I loose interest in finishing them, this was drinkable to the last drop.)
Taste: Creamy, Coffee, Chocolate
A cross between an Oatmeal and Cream stout, this beer is made with
dark roasted barley malts, flaked oats and milk sugar that lend it deep
milk chocolate and creamed coffee aromas and flavors.
ABV: 5.8% // IBU: 45 // OG: 15.5
