It didn’t take long for award-winning Voodoo Brewery to outgrow its Meadville britches. The brewery’s not abandoning operations out of the small Crawford County seat. Rather, in January of 2015, the owners opened Voodoo Homestead, a satellite pub which sells only Voodoo beer. The pub offers 12 beers on draft, though do check their website for availability. For the uninitiated, we recommend HooDoo. With this IPA, Voodoo promises your taste buds a journey down the seven “Cs.” (That’s seven different hops beginning with the letter C.) From the taste of things, we’re guessing one of those Cs is citra, making this piney brew the perfect summer beverage. As for the location, the chalked menu harks to their Meadville base; the old hoses under the cast-iron stairs hark to the location’s old function: firehouse and municipal building. Add in some ceiling art, including God granting Adam a bottle à la the Sistine Chapel, and you’ve got a space as funky as the suds served inside it. The pub also sells snacks and growlers. 205 E. 9th Ave., Homestead. (CM)
