Meet Voodoo Brewery (and forget everything you thought you knew about craft beer)
Who We Are
A band of brothers (and sisters and brothers from other mothers) who obsess about brewing the best damn beer, period.
Who We're NOT
A typical, cookie-cutter franchise filled with greedy corporate suits that won't stop until there's a Voodoo Brewery on every corner.
We Brew for YOU!
Our enigmatic, beer-obsessed Brew Master works tirelessly behind the scenes to deliver our award-winning, highly sought-after beer to your doorstep each week. We do the heavy lifting- you and your crew do the pouring.
Fighting the War on Mediocre Beer Since 2005
Proud defenders of craft beer innovation and destroyers of the status quo, we've shattered the brewery mold with beers you have to taste to believe.
We're Not Normal
We know, we know every company thinks it's unique. The difference is, for us it's actually true. You're not going to find another place like Voodoo Brewery anywhere you go.
Tank Tops and Flip Flops
We've built up enough street cred in our industry (not to mention goodwill from our 40,000+ international social media followers) to be taken seriously without having to put on dorky shirts and ties.
Like our beer? Buy a brewery! Bring award-winning craft beers with a massive cult following to your community by opening a Voodoo brewpub.
Are You Voodoo Enough for Us?
We\re looking for people with these characteristics to join the Voodoo Brewery tribe:
The original Voodoo Brewery opened its doors in Meadville, Pennsylvania in 2005. It instantly gained local success, but really took off in 2009, when military veteran and all-around badass Jake Voelker saw something special in us and used his life savings to purchase an apartment, an engagement ring, and Voodoo Brewery all in the same year!
Jake and the gang thrived from Day One, despite starting a business during one of the darkest times in U.S. financial history. Their instant success allowed them to open several more pubs and expand the brewery site into a 30-barrel production facility, with Jake and his business partners, including CEO Matteo Rachocki, heading the front end of the business and Matteo's brother, award-winning œmad scientist Brew Master Curt Rachocki, behind the scenes.
With sales exceeding expectations, and requests from guests and entrepreneurs pouring in for additional Voodoo Brewery locations, Jake created Voodoo Licensing LLC with the intent to make the coveted Voodoo beers and experience available to self-proclaimed œbeer snobs nationwide. Awarding our first franchise in 2019, Voodoo Brewery is now ready to take its top-rated brews across America!
Training and Support
For new Franchise Owners, training is as much about learning the nuts and bolts of running a Voodoo Brewery as it is about immersing yourself in our rich culture and getting inducted into our tight tribe. Whether you're low on Good Vibes (our top-selling beer) or you could use some actual good vibes to navigate your Grand Opening and beyond, our Corporate Support Team has your back from Day One. Here's what you can expect from us:
