I live less then 40 minutes away from Downingtown and have never been to visit one of my favorite breweries. Whats wrong with me? I had the day off today and my GF was working so i figured, what the hell. I'll take a drive out.

People have had trouble finding it and i can see why. It is in an industrial center and easily overlooked. Good thing i had my tom tom. I plug the address in and ended up right at the front door.

This place is really big inside and pretty spread out. Service was quick and nice. Lots of room at the bar and lots of tables and booths also.

Food was ok. I had a Jerk chicken grinder that came with all of 5 steak fries for $9. I honestly didnt go there for the food although i was quite hungry. I had two beers. Both cask versions. A style which i had never had. They have a rotating cask lineup of 5 or six beers. This day i had an Uncle Teddy's Bitter and a Hop Wallop. Both were excellent. For my sandwich and 2 beers it was $20.

After paying the bill i visited the giftshop and picked up a Prima Pils goblet and a Golden Monkey Tulip glass and also a bottle opener. Great gift shop!

I would definitely go back as there are many (20 or so taps along with the 5 hand pumps) beers i would like to try fresh.

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!

As good as it gets!!!! Decor, staff and beers are great. Brewery tour was fantastic. Merch shop is tops. They should expand it. They have a Cornucopia of beers. I'm usually not a flight/sampler guy but it is worth it here.
