New name, new master brewer – same passion for creating the extraordinary. Triple Voodoo Brewing, the San Francisco craft brewery that made it’s public debut serving Inception Belgian Style Ale under the name Cherry Voodoo at the San Francisco Beer Week Opening Gala in 2011, is celebrating the start of it’s second year with three new brews and an anniversary celebration, one of SF Beer Week 2012’s featured events.
It was February 15th 2011 that the Bay Area beer makers now known as Triple Voodoo Brewing introduced their limited edition Filth Pig Oak Aged Imperial IPA, Angel Honey Pale Ale, and Inception Belgian Style Ale, at Church Key Bar. This year Triple Voodoo Brewing celebrated the start of their second year at that same spot.
When asked about how it all began, co-founder, Greg Kitchen recounts: “We were all friends who shared a passion for craft beer. One of us started homebrewing, and as we shared it with enthusiastic friends, we decided to go into business so that we could share these creations with other craft beer lovers.”
A new addition to Triple Voodoo this year is master brewer Devin Stephens, a 15 year brewer, Devin’s passion began amid the flourishing craft brew scene taking root in Fort Collins, Colorado in 1996. he later moved to Northern California where he began creating beers to push the envelope in terms of both quality and creativity. Devin likes to reflect upon his personal journey: “I started brewing beer after purchasing a home brewing starter kit with a small cash bonus I earned at work and, like all of my other hobbies, it spiraled out of control. I don’t remember what i brewed first, but I remember that it wasn’t very good- and that’s what motivated me to learn and improve.”
Triple Voodoo Brewing has a lot planned for year two. Stay tuned and see what we will be brewing up next!
