9 June 2017. cool place. Meadville is a kind of crappy town and from the outside, the brewery looks like a rundown old building. Inside is pretty neat. Lots of old hardwood. huge bar and huge communal table. Lots of seating upstairs. about 15 taps. decent prices. friendly servers.
One of my favorite places to frequent in the NW PA region. In my opinion, all of their beers are excellent. The selection available changes regularly and there is a firkin every Friday at 5 pm. The menu is small but typically delicious. Occasional live music upstairs in the Voodoo Lounge. Great place overall!
Had a nightcap here and unfortunately kitchen closes at 10 .... ambiance reminds me of a downtown philly bar with a rundown rowhome artsy look .... re-purposed furniture, old fridges converted to taps, old doors hanging overhead .... service was prompt ... selection was lacking variety and was more of a seasonal and one off life with some staple brews ... no stouts .... cheap prices ... i’d love to check out the grub they definitely had a nice hipster menu
Didn’t try the food but the beer was great. The cowbell on nitro took a while to pour which backed up the service. Liked the different styles they had on tap, made it hard to decide what to pick. Great place to visit when passing through the Erie/Great Lakes region.
Visited on 11/10/12.
A: The place has a really cool vibe to it, brick on the exterior walls, random doors hanging from the ceiling, nice long bar, couches, and high tables.
Q: The beers are all decent to really good, especially their 4 Seasons IPA and More Cowbell.
S: Bartenders were attentive and friendly even when busy.
S: 10 different beers on tap, 9 different styles that cover a nice array.
V: Beers were all resonably priced, bombers even more reasonably priced, borderline cheap.
Overall, solid beer, solid bar, solid brewery.
The looks of the place aren’t wonderful but inside I liked it. There is a spacious downstairs and upstairs. The lower being the main room had a huge bar, tables, and sofas. The men’s restroom was interesting. I had to joke with some folks while in there that a guy couldn’t do everything he needed in there. The service was okay. Everyone seemed friendly and did their jobs at a good pace. The tap list was descent with house brews. I would of liked to have seen non house brews. The foods smelled great but I was not hungry. Overall it is a nice place and worth checking out.

My first trip here was for the Voodoo Barrel Room Release. By the time I made it into the brew pub I had a few drinks sharing bottles outside with a bunch of others waiting for the release. I cant say enough about how well everything was handled there. I wish the service would have been a bit faster but I cant wait to make it back here.
Ambiance is cool, good vibe from the music and nice wooden interior. Service was a bit slow, but it was mainly due to it being packed from the release. Selection, specifically for this day was nice with some one offs, but not a gigantic selection. Beers were very cheap for the quality. Overall worth stopping if your driving up or down 79.
My first trip to Voodoo for the bottle release, luckily we got up there early enough to have some dinner and a few beers before it got too crazy.
An interesting little pub in an old building. Lots of wood everywhere, from the tables to the 10 or so old doors hanging from the ceiling. Draft list, as well as the food menu, are written on the wall in chalk. Service was decent once I figured it all out. I didn’t have to wait very long for my beers so all in all it was fine with me. Quality seemed to be high. All the beers in the correct glasses and all of the food was made from scratch, including the spent grain pizza crust. I wasn’t too hungry but I was able to try a few things our party ordered, my favorite being the sausage gravy breakfast pizza, it was quite good. I also noticed the pita’s looked especially tasty, I may get one of those next time I am in town.
Since the release was the next day I was expecting the selection to be solid and it was, to a point. I liked the variety they offered but I wasn’t really trying to drink a bunch of higher ABV beers with the looming all night bottle share fast approaching and they only had one beer on that was under 8%, and it was a stout, even the pils was 8+%. I enjoyed the beers I had but 1-2 more lower ABV beers would have been nice. Overall a really nice brewpub. I look forward to stopping here again when I am in the area.
