Victory re-designed its interior a few years back and at that time went from being a good brew pub to a great one. The inside is huge, clean, almost always bustling w activity, well staffed, and has a massive bar area (which I personally love, as I prefer the bar to a booth).

The beer of course is very high quality and there is always a huge amount of choices on tap as well as multiple offerings on cask. Growler fills are strongly encouraged and they actually have their own custom made growler machine, which cranks out quick perfect fills. That doesn't stop the line for growlers from backing up though, as Victory has really created a growler thirsty community of beer lovers with their inviting approach. Last time I was in I got a growler of Golden Monkey mashed up w Storm King Stout and it cost $10. Awesome. Huge thanks to Victory for keeping craft beer affordable w their growler pricing!

Food is very good with something for everyone, but it is not stupendous. It is not a gastro-pub in other words. I appreciate that though. Victory is a brewery, and the beer should be the center of the universe. If I want a real fancy $20-40 entree I can go elsewhere.

There is nice merch room in the back that sells all sorts of schwag as well as beer by the case and bomber. They do mix and match cases which is very nice, and the beer they sell here seems to always be very freshly capped - frequently within days.

Be sure to check out the cool table in the corner by the bar area made out of an old copper brewery tank. And also take note of the live monitor giving updates on the solar energy being generated by Victory's photovoltaic panels.

Overall this is simply just a great place with great beer. A real treasure for the Philly area.

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
