After hitting the de Young we hit TV and nearby Smokehouse @ Magnolia before heading home. In the Dogpatch area which is an "up and coming" area with boutique foodie places-French Butcher anyone? Located a long walk from A&T Park the interior is most def' chic industrial with a long bar and pretty nice metal chairs. Brewing equipment is to the right when you walk in. There were about 1/2 dozen folks on a rainy Saturday at 1pmish. We tried a sampler of 6 4 oz tasters. Really enjoyed the brews for the most part-the ones we didn't was because the styles aren't our favorite to begin with. The hits for us were the Oatmeal pale Ale, the Rye IPA, Sour Project #1, and Triple IPA. Service was solid and the bar keeper friendly. Would most certainly return to TV next time we are in the area.

this was a fun little stop on our ambitious self guided greater san francisco brewery tour. never heard of these guys before this, but i liked the beers we had in here. its a cool space, laid back and mellow, even on a saturday afternoon, and it wasnt particularly busy, so a nice place to post up at the bar and relax with a few pints. its small and comfortable, and they have a pretty food selection of beers, leaning belgian but covering a wide range. i love the pils and the coffee king leopold belgian stout, both were excellent. the others they had on were also intriguing, but we didnt have a ton of time. the service was just okay for me, i dont need to be welcomed in any special way, treated overly kind or anything, but the dude behind the bar was short with us and totally disinterested in what he was doing it seemed, and thats always a turn off for me. i mean, he poured the beers and answered a few questions, but was not much of an asset to this place on this day. its a good thing the beers were so tasty and the vibe here was so relaxed, it was an easy place to have a quiet conversation and sip great beer. im not sure how distinct this is from what anyone else is doing in the area, but i liked it here and would return if i ever had more than a day or two in the city. check it out if you are in the area, they are making some really solid beers!

I visited Triple Voodoo while in San Francisco for work last week. It's got kind of an industrial vibe, with a metal bar and kind of a modernist build-out. They had 7 taps available, with a reasonable mix of styles. The beers themselves ranged from not-bad to quite good; I highly recommend the Mocha Shake coffee chocolate porter. Service was pretty good, although when I was there it was very slow so the server's attention wasn't especially divided. It's worth coming here just for that porter.

It was my last day on vacation visiting my sister in the Bay area. We took in the Anchor Brewing Tour at one thirty and then stumbled into Magnolia Smokestack for lunch in Dogpatch and then found this cool little place up the street. San Francsco is awesome. Chill little place on a weekday afternoon was only sparsely populated but we had a good time. I had a pils and bought a shirt for my wife. Recommend.

Relatively mellow vibe at what we thought would be peak time on a Friday night. Good quality across a broad range. Service was fine, walking up to the bar. Broad selection including Belgian styles, English, and Pils. Enjoyed the experience overall.

Triple Voodoo tap room on 3rd street is one of many great new places to pop out seemingly out of no where in the up and coming Dogpatch neighborhood. The taproom itself is nothing special, just a darkly painted small area with a bar and few tables to try Triple Voodoos classic veers and latest creations. My personal favorite is the 8 tentacles which is a great belgian ale/west coast IPA hybrid. The layout of the taproom is actually pretty awkward, you can tell that the space was renovated from a parking garage or something similar, so I don't see myself hanging out here on a regular basis. However, the beer is great and you can get food delivered from a stellar pizza place next door, or bring in your own. Overall, definitely put this tap room on your list if visiting SF or just happen to be walking down the street in the Dogpatch.

I'm Belgian, I live in Dogpatch, and I'm a homebrewer / beer nerd. How excited was I that Triple Voodoo, a brewery that focuses on Belgian style ale, was going to open a brewery and tap room in my neighborhood? Pretty freakin' excited. I got even more excited when I heard that Phil Meeker, formerly of Iron Springs Brewery in Fairfax, would be their new head brewer. I've gone to the Iron Springs brew pub and enjoyed their beers. Heck, I was so excited that I found myself checking local food and beer blogs and sites on a weekly basis for many months, tracking their progress and waiting for the place to open. I was expecting this place to become my new local watering hole.

Unfortunately, Triple Voodoo has failed to deliver. It's not the beer, it's the service.

First visit: I head over there on their second day. They only have 3 beers on offer, but they are decent enough, and the staff is pleasant. Only a handful of customers in the place, as it is a soft opening. So far so good.

Second visit: Thursday February 20th - I get there at 6:30 PM with a buddy, and wait 15 minutes at the bar. It is not that busy, but there is only 1 bartender, and she seems frazzled. We're unable to get her attention so head to Dogpatch Saloon instead. I write a short note about my visit on Triple Voodoo's Facebook page, to let them know about my experience. They respond with "we're so sorry about that. we just opened for a week and are still short-staffed; however we're staffing up as fast as we possibly could and next time your experience should be much better. thank you so much for coming and your feedback!". That's cool. They received my feedback and acknowledged it! I decide to give them another try in the near future.

Third visit - today 3/8. around 3 PM. The place is pretty busy, but I can still get a seat at the bar (so it is not THAT busy) - there are now 2 people working the bar - bearded beer geek in Russian River shirt, and woman bartender. The problem is that, while there are many customers waiting to be served, the two tenders have ZERO sense of urgency. They just don't seem bothered that customers are waiting to be helped. Once again, I wait patiently for 20 minutes seated at the bar. My presence is never acknowledged, and after 20 minutes, I get up and leave.

When you go to a busy bar it is not unusual to have to wait 5 or 10 minutes to get a beer, but at most places you can tell that the bartenders are busting their asses, working hard to get as many customers served as quickly as possible. The bartenders at Triple Voodoo work veeeerrryyyy sloooowwwwlllly and simply don't seem to care that you're waiting.

So yeah, I might try going again in a few months when the novelty of the place has worn off. But my time is too previous to wait around, hoping to get lucky enough to be served a Triple Voodoo beer.
