One word can describe this place...MASSIVE!

One of the bigger brew-pubs I have been in. You can enter directly into the dining area or down the "hall" near the arcade (yeah...they have an arcade) and the hallway the leads to the gift shop.

You walk through the main dining area to get to the huge bar...long, straight and wide opened. There were three bartenders working on a Tuesday after work. You can walk past the bar area into another room...not sure what it is used for, but it looks like a traditional "beer garten" type place; lots of long wooden tables.

They had pretty much all of their regular line-up on tap. The bartenders were all knowledgeable and able to answer any questions I had about some of their lesser known (read non-bottled) beer.

The gift shop down the hall has a ton of Victory merchandise including cases and sixers to go.

Every brewery should have a set up like Victory does...top class everywhere.

I had not been to Victory in years, and when the wife and I arrived there on a sunny, late-summer Saturday evening, the place was the madhouse we expected it to be. Packed, loud and full of babies and children. But we got a spot in the bar area and quickly ordered some beers, followed by dinner at a table after a short wait. Despite the size and the crowds, they seem to manage the spot pretty smartly.

25 beers on tap is a damn fine amount, running the gamut from HopDevil to Storm King, DirtWolf, Golden Monkey, Noble IPA, Wild Devil, Rye IPA, Green House Saison and more. A bit for everyone, all served in full pints at excellent prices (under six dollars for Storm and DirtWolf). Three casks as well, and two bottles (White Monkey and V-12).

The food menu is as massive as the Victory operation itself, and it comes with new additions every day. We had some gnocchi, a small pizza, an eggplant dish and handmade chips. Good stuff overall. Not high-end good, but satisfying and well made. The emphasis on local ingredients is a nice touch.

At around sixty bucks for a bunch of beers and all that food, I didn’t find Victory to be expensive. Will definitely come back!

As good as it gets!!!! Decor, staff and beers are great. Brewery tour was fantastic. Merch shop is tops. They should expand it. They have a Cornucopia of beers. I'm usually not a flight/sampler guy but it is worth it here.
