I thought the place was absolutely great! Definitely my kind of place, and worth the trip.

I found it fairly quickly, but I can see how it may be a problem, so make sure you have good directions. As so many pointed out, the place is big, warehouse-like. It definitely cannot be described as cozy, but it is very casual and sitting there you feel very relaxed. You get a feeling that it is a brewery first, and a pub second. It really is all about the beer!

Victory has a long bar, a couple of pool tables, and a large dining area. Very simple, very casual, a place you can relax in. People working there were very friendly. No complaints there.

The biggest attraction here, of course, is beer! I got a sampler - all Victory beers. Sample glasses are fairly large at 6 oz and there were 16 styles available when I was there. You get your standards like HopDevil, Golden Monkey and Storm King. But you also get Old Horizontal, Braumeister Pils, St. Victorious, Mad King's Weiss, cask conditioned HopDevil, Dark Lager, D-Town Brown Ale and a few others. Quality was outstanding. Even for styles I do not normally enjoy (heife and barley wine) I could feel and appreciate excellent quality.

I didn't eat a lot, but enjoyed whatever I tried. I plan to center a weekend around Victory some time soon.

Very highly recommended!
