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!

Decided to swing down on a free Saturday afternoon to check this place out. I'm glad I did!

It's in a fairly dingy, dying town, not a whole lot around. The place doesn't really even look like much from the outside. Inside, it's rustic, funky, and very woody. Everything appears to be second hand- all reclaimed stuff they used to build their pub. Very cool, and gives it a really cool, rugged look- especially the old refrigerators that now house their taps. The flight handles are made from old bourbon barrel staves, there are old doors lining the ceiling, old bourbon barrels as seats, etc.

Probably about 10 taps or so, 6 year round offerings (Good Vibes, Wynona's Brown, Gran Met, White Magick of the Sun, Pilzilla, Voodoo Love Child) plus some one offs and casks (Hoodoo with Sriracha on cask, CAUTION! CONTAINS REAL PUMPKIN!, Breakfast of Champions, Motueka Single Hop Pale Ale, Irish Harvest Special) I personally got two glasses of the Pumpkin, holy shit, it's amazing. Breakfast of Champions is one of the best low ABV stouts I've had, so much flavor in that ABV, and Good Vibes is one of the best IPAs in the Northeast. Their one-offs/seasonals do seem to be better than their year-round beers, other than Good Vibes.

The food menu is very small, about 8 items total, and it apparently changes a lot. The pepperoni pizza I got was very tasty. You order at the bar, then pick up your order at the kitchen window.

Prices for everything was relatively reasonable. Wouldn't call it cheap, but not expensive either. Caution was $7.25 for a 8oz glass, but then again, that makes sense. Breakfast of Champions was only $4.25 for a 12 oz glass, not bad at all. Pizza was $12.

They have bottles to go, the majority of their year round stuff (except for Good Vibes). They did have Hoodoo in bottles, not on tap, so I took some home, as well as a 22 oz of Pilzilla.

A definite must-stop if you're anywhere near this area. Outstanding beer.

Voodoo is an all around great place to stop if you happen to be in the area. The beers are world class, the food is fantastic, and the staff is great. The atmosphere is comfortable, whether you are sitting at the bar or at the high top tables. An excellent brewery/pub from top to bottom. Highly recommended.

Voodoo Brewery is excellent in all aspects. The atmosphere is innovative with many refurbished and reused objects. The crowd is very low key including young couples, families, and groups of friends. The beer is outstanding. Unfortunately, I had eaten before arriving but the food smelled delicious. The staff was extremely busy but found time to make sure every patron got personal attention. I would visit Voodoo Brewery over and over again.
