You won't find unusual flavors at this local Fairbanks brewery. Bobby Milken, born and raised in Fairbanks, started HooDoo Brewing Company to offer beers in classic English, German, Belgian and American styles. The open-concept taproom allows visitors to see the process while enjoying a glass or growler of their favorite brew. The brewery – the first in Alaska to harness solar power for its operation – offers free tours on Saturdays. Known for its Kölsch and American IPA, the brewery also features a variety of seasonal releases on tap.

Locals and visitors alike call this brewery a hidden gem and complimented the outstanding beer, lively atmosphere and rotation of food trucks. Some visitors said that its location is a bit off-the-beaten-path in an industrial area near a railyard, while others noted that the service was fast and friendly even though the brewery is always busy. Most recommended the beer flight in the tasting room. 

Located less than 2 miles northwest of downtown, HooDoo Brewing Company's taproom is open Tuesday to Friday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Free tours are offered every Saturday at 4 p.m. To check the current list of beers on tap or for a map and directions, visit the brewery website.

#1 Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center

The Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center is a great first stop to pick up maps and information on things to do in Fairbanks. In addition to exhibits on the natural history of the region and the cultural history of Alaska natives, the center offers a free film on Alaska's history and nature. What's more, on the first Friday of every month, the center hosts a free reception featuring the work of an Alaskan artist from the interior region. This is also where you'll find the city's famous Antler Arch, a piece constructed with more than 100 moose and caribou antlers collected from all over interior Alaska.

Most recent visitors said this free museum was an ideal first stop for learning about Alaskan life, with a good mix of history and culture. Many found the central downtown location convenient, and families particularly enjoyed the interactive displays for kids. Some visitors were disappointed that the informative movie only runs once per day, but all travelers complimented the friendly and knowledgeable staff.
