Review from a few notes taken but also my memory of visiting during the Grand Opening June 30th, 2012.

I arrived at around 7 15 pm...the place opened at 3pm...and the atmosphere was great! There was a buzz around the place and it was largely standing room. I made my way to the bar to have a Voodoo 7-7-12 (an exclusive beer on tap, apparently brewed for a friend's wedding coming up on that date) and any of the others that I would like to have.

A VERY long bar on the left side as you enter, great looking old doors hang overhead and on the right wall is a huge chalkboard with the available selections (including the 7-7-12 and Cowbell along with all of the other standards). deep in the back is the kitchen and just to the right of the kitchen is the "cellar" where the barrels are stored.

One of my first impressions about the place was the heat. Unfortunately there is not yet good ventilation and the sun was beating through large open windows behind the bar. Spoke with owner/operator Matt who indicated that he has blinds on order and that would be a huge improvement as also possibly air conditioning would be as well.

John Lee Hooker playing on the Pandora was a nice touch (played through legit speaker system).

Quality is great. Snifters, specific Pilzilla glasses, pint glasses with Voodoo logos served to customers with great beer inside of them. Staff was helpful and talkative with this out-of-towner looking to support the new brew pub.

Selection...This is the Voodoo Brewing Company pub for Pete's sake...the selection is great!

Food: I had the chicken, spinach and tomato pizza and the homemade hummus and they were both very good. If I had any more room in my belly I would have tried the bratwurst and there was also an interesting salad available.

Value: I had 8 beers, the pizza, the hummus and even bought a t-shirt and before tip it was $42. I think that is inexpensive.

Notes: As soon as they get the place feeling a little less hot then my atmosphere score will increase. A great place to have a beer and a great source of great beer!

This place is magical. Great atmosphere, was full but didn't feel crowded. The staff were very nice and efficient you could tell they enjoyed it there. Prices for the beers were very reasonable. Tried the magherita pizza and it was ok, worked well with the beer. The only problem is this place was too good. Had to get glassware and growlers and bottles to go. Will be back for sure. Only complaint I have is this place isn't close to me in pittsburgh.

A MUST visit whenever I'm in town visiting friends. With the upstairs expansion, I can only imagine it being even better. The atmosphere is unique and ecclectic, the food fresh and unique, and the beers are always top notch.

Up there on the list of my favorite breweries for sure! If you're even remotely close to here when you're traveling, you owe it to yourself to stop in
