Grand Opening Tap List:
4 Seasons IPA (Summer 1)
Gran Met
Pilzilla
Voodoo Love Child
White Magick of the Sun
Wynona's Big Brown Ale
Cowbell

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!

Stopped by while visiting some breweries/brewpubs in the Meadville area.

V - Good times. The bar occupies an end unit of a row building. There is a long bar, behind it is an equally long communal table for patrons to sit. In the back of the bar there is also a nook with some bench seating. Next to the nook there is a pickup window for the kitchen. Since the bar is in an end unit there are a ton of windows for light. The decorations are unique. No TVs, which allow you to focus more on your company and the beer.

Q - Great beer and food. While the food options are rotating I highly suggest the Souther Fried Chicken sliders if they are on the menu. Shrimp flat bread and Hummus were also good. Had a beer sampler as well.

Ser - Bartenders were helpful & Knowledgeable. They remained friendly and attentive even as the bar became crowded.

Sel - Twelve beers on tap. The sampler includes: Good Vibes, Wynona's Big Brown ale, White Magic of the Sun, Gran Met, Voodoo Love Child, & Killpillz. Then there are about eleven food options which rotate weekly.

O - Fun place to hang out. The food is great and the beer is delicious. The bar got pretty busy while we were there on a mid Saturday afternoon. Even though there were plenty of patrons it never felt overly crowded which added to the energy/excitement in the room. This place is definitely worth checking out and I look forward to going back.
