Over five years in the making, please help us celebrate the grand opening of our pub this Saturday June 30th. We will be open from 3pm-12am at our brewery located at 215 Arch Street in downtown Meadville, PA.
Grand Opening Tap List:

Wynona's Big Brown Ale
The following will be available in VERY limited amounts, once they're gone, they're gone:
7.7.12- Gran Met aged on fresh dragon fruit, mango, papaya, pomegranate, blood oranges, and canary mellon. this beer was made for a very good friend of the brewery who is getting married on, you guessed it, 7.7.12
Grande Negro Voodoo Papi- Big Black Voodoo Daddy brewed with maple syrup and aged on whole vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, and an assortment of hot chili peppers
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!
