My homebrew club scheduled a trip and tour of Victory yesterday and we were able to sit at the brewmaster's table right next to the bar afterward - good times for sure -here is my review.

The place is one I am familar with as I had been to the pub several times before the big remodel. The entry is open and the dining area is spacious - beautiful light wood floors and seating arrangements provide plenty of places to sit, stand and with the bar toward the back of the house gives you a chance to look around on your way in at things like the Weyerman malt paddle, beer brand tapestires that include Storm king, Hop Wallop, Golden Monkey and huge Hopdevil sign as well as the original copper brewkettles adorning the bar and brewmaster's table shined up bright.

the first thing we noticed was the service which is both friendly and prompt - we had beers in hand minutes after entering. We got a chance to check out the beer board and bar and our waitress was friendly and helped with beer descriptions. I should have asked about serving sizes though since I only had 3 beers as a result of getting the large every time -(not rquesting a smaller size).

The selection runs the gamut of draft -10 beers, cask -4 and bottles -3 - killer! they had all of the flagships and seasonal selections plus a few new beers on like Strangeways golden and Bottum's up brown. The Braumeister pils was fresh and delicious, the Esb and Bitter both tasty, the only thing I missed was Yakima Twilight which was past its season evidently.

The food was served in big portions and was fresh - I had the Cajun tuna wrap. I found it to be good but not outstanding. I will have to try the Brisket or brewmaster selection hearth baked pizza. I love the pizza options and the have bison grinders and my brother enjoyed duck so there are plenty of choices including options for vegetarians and the onion soup was delicious!

The best part was the pricing which was very reasonable - I had the wrap 10bucks, soup 5 and 3 beers 13.5, plus the growler I took home was only 7.50- excellent. I was pleased with the experience...almost everyone in the group didn't want to leave, the tour was pretty standard, but it was nice to check out the upgrades to the brewing equipment and they were brewing while we were there which was cool.
Definitely one of the best brewpub experiences I think I have had- must check out Victory if you haven't been.
