Voodoo Brewing Co. was founded in 2005 in Meadville, PA, with our first taproom opening in 2012. Since that time, our brand has seen explosive growth. After opening a second taproom in Homestead, PA (outside of Pittsburgh) in 2015, followed by another taproom in Erie, PA in 2016, we recognized the need to produce our award-winning beer in larger volume.

Voodoo Brewing Co. opened our Production Facility, a sweeping space that affords us the capability to expand our inventory almost indefinitely, in early 2017. Finally we opened an additional pub in State College, PA in 2019.

Voodoo Brewing Co. has a globally recognized brand, having received accolades from all over the world because of our attention to detail and quality of ingredients. It is because of this attentiveness, product consistency, and beer innovation that we are continually invited to the most prestigious festivals around the world.

Voodoo Brewing Company is also Employee Owned.
