The Dogpatch has become a beer haven as of late, with Almanac setting up their offices there, Magnolia's new brewery expected any week now, and, as recently announced, the entry of brewers Triple Voodoo into the neighborhood. Inside Scoop talked to co-founder Greg Kitchen about his plans for the space he recently leased at 3rd and 20th Streets, which he plans to turn into a 2,800-square-foot brewery and taproom, with new head brewer Phil Meeker (who won awards for his work at Iron Springs) at the helm.
Billed as "a destination for beer education," the bar will feature 15 brews from Triple Voodoo and other rotating local breweries on draft, with the brewery bottling the beers that perform best in the taproom environment. There won't be a kitchen, but food trucks will come by, and Kitchen says he'll also be happy to let folks bring in to-go food from nearby restaurants. The capacity of Triple Voodoo will be about a third of what Dave McLean will have at Magnolia's new space, and they're planning on working on a lot of quirky projects, like barrel-aged beers, seasonal releases, and possibly sour beer. The goal is to open by the end of 2013, permits permitting. In the meantime, if you want to meet Kitchen, Meeker, and their team, they'll be popping up at The Willows for a "Meet the Brewer" event next Thursday, August 22.
