I had not been to Victory in years, and when the wife and I arrived there on a sunny, late-summer Saturday evening, the place was the madhouse we expected it to be. Packed, loud and full of babies and children. But we got a spot in the bar area and quickly ordered some beers, followed by dinner at a table after a short wait. Despite the size and the crowds, they seem to manage the spot pretty smartly.

25 beers on tap is a damn fine amount, running the gamut from HopDevil to Storm King, DirtWolf, Golden Monkey, Noble IPA, Wild Devil, Rye IPA, Green House Saison and more. A bit for everyone, all served in full pints at excellent prices (under six dollars for Storm and DirtWolf). Three casks as well, and two bottles (White Monkey and V-12).

The food menu is as massive as the Victory operation itself, and it comes with new additions every day. We had some gnocchi, a small pizza, an eggplant dish and handmade chips. Good stuff overall. Not high-end good, but satisfying and well made. The emphasis on local ingredients is a nice touch.

At around sixty bucks for a bunch of beers and all that food, I didn’t find Victory to be expensive. Will definitely come back!

A lot of fun, but having just come from Troegs, was a little letdown. Vibe was more restaurant than beerhall, but I plan to return with an open mind a clean palate.

Victory beer is available at a lot of places, and the few bar-only, draft-only options aren't that great. That being said, it's really nice to be able to try really fresh versions of their standard offerings, and also try neat variants like having HopDevil Draught side-by-side with HopDevil Nitro, HopDevil Cask, and HopDevil in bottles.

Their food is really good pub food that often incorporates their beer into the recipe.

The RIBS CANNOT BE MISSED
