My family members have a house about ten minutes away from here, so I stop by whenever I'm in the area. It would be a regular stop for me if I wasn't over an hour away, as I can't really get my beloved HopDevil Ale any fresher than this!

Atmosphere: Well, it's kind of weird. There are two doors that you can go into: a main door that leads to the restaurant/bar part, and a side door the leads to the beer store. However, the beer store door is confusing at first visit; you suddenly find yourself dumped into the back of the dining section and next to a small arcade. You then have to follow an annoyingly narrow hallway for twenty feet or so, and then the beer store is the last doorway on the left. It's a small store with clothes racks clogging up the center of the floor. They really need more space for the beer store. However, when you walk through the dining area and into the main hall, it really opens up. Also, the bar is pretty freaking big.

Quality: You can't get Victory brews much fresher than this; this is where the beer is created and awaits thirsty patrons by the case in the beer store, or by the growler full.

Service: I didn't eat there, so I can't say about the waiting staff or bar staff, but the guys at the register in the store were nice, and obviously knowledgeable, as they were having a conversation about how long one should allow an IPA to sit before it loses its freshness.

Selection: They have cases of their most popular brews in the beer store; other than that, I'm not sure, as I haven't eaten or drank there.

Value: The prices for cases are average, but their glasses in the beer store are crazy cheap. I believe it was about three bucks for a nice Victory pint glass, and seven bucks for a goblet.

Overall: A place that you need to stop at if you're in the area and like Victory brews. You can't get much fresher!

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.
