Reason enough to go to Downingtown...
There's always a minimum of 10 beers on tap here, all Victory's own. Often between 13 and 16, with a couple of cask offerings. A large portion of the choice is seasonal too. The sampler is amazing, they give you a 7 oz.(!) glass of each beer without excluding anything. It alone may be enough for two people to share and call it a day, and particularly good for those just getting into beer, as you'll get a wide variety of styles hit pretty spot-on. Most of their beer is incredible and there's some that are hard or impossible to find anywhere else. They fill up growlers cheap too (most beers are $7, some are a bit more), and sell beautiful 2L German growlers at a great price (it's cheaper to buy one and get it filled there than it is to buy one most places). It's in an old Pepperidge Farm factory and still keeps the warehouse atmosphere, with large grain sacks hanging from the ceiling and huge windows allowing one to see the fermenting tanks. The food was very good, a nice mix of traditional pub fare and more unique dishes. The wings and fries were great, the pizza was good and the salmon-topped caesar salad (daily special, sadly) was amazing. The pulled pork sandwich and burgers are exceptional. Service ranges from amazingly good to slow and apathetic depending on who's working when you're there and how crowded it is. Overall a great place, something to plan a weekend around. Nearby are both Sly Foxes and the Drafting Room Exton. Oh and look for our very own Rotsaruch parked on a barstool right at the turn in the bar, probably enjoying something slow-poured.
