Made in Bret Harte: Triple Voodoo
Before Greg and Renee Kitchen started Triple Voodoo Brewery & Tap Room in Dogpatch ten years ago, they were living in San Francisco working day jobs and homebrewing as a hobby. Once they finally decided to make a business out of it, they worked double duty for a couple years, building the business on evenings and weekends after hours. Two years ago, they moved out of the city to Bret Harte. “We wanted a change of pace from the craziness of SF and we fell in love with the quaint nature of Bret Harte,” said Greg.
Today, having just celebrated its tenth anniversary, Triple Voodoo is a thriving business located on 3rd Street in SF’s Dogpatch, with 16 rotating taps of its craft beers, a 26-foot bar, and a beautiful modern industrial event space.
