Our thanks to the bartender at Iron Hill in West Chester for giving us perfect directions to the Victory Brewery. It may have been a struggle finding it if he was not so precise (even down to describing the big rock on the side of the road where we make a turn).
Upon arriving in their parking lot, you realize it's nestled in the corner of an industrial area. It does not seem like the place for a restaurant. As we enter the establishment, we're greated by a long bar with several patrons sitting enjoying a pint, or sampling several beers. The restaurant is around the corner on the far end of the bar, with a receptionist waiting to seat you.
We started out with their beer sampler. There must have been 10 beers in all. We tried everything on tap including Storm King, HopDevil, and Golden Monkey, Uncle Teddy's Bitter). We were hoping for a seasonal double IPA or something that resembled Hop Wallop, but that didn't happen. Oh well. The bartender was knowledable and enthusiastic about their beers, and even mixed a few beers as additional samplers. I think one mixture he gave us was an Uncle Teddy's Bitter with the Golden Monkey Tripel. It was vey good.
They had a collection of some good cigars for sale (Ashton, CAO, etc.), which made the stop all the more enjoyable. Our only disappointment was that we didn't have more time to spend here, as we were on our way to the Sly Fox Brewery in Phoenixville for dinner.

Food is awesome, beer is awesome! They need an outdoor patio! The tour was really cool and you could bring your beer along. The also have a store with apparel and other Victory items that is good to check out. I got growler of Hop Wallop to go. My favorite brewery by far
