Atmosphere - Victory is kind of in the middle of nowhere. Were it not for Victory's quality beer, this establishment would have gone under long ago due to location. We took the brewery tour, which was very nice. Whoever gave the tour was very knowlegdable and despite his inebriated demeanor could field any question presented. After the tour, we ate in the restaurant which was in the foot of the L-shaped room. The bar is in the shaft of the L and everything else is throughout the rest of the complex. I don't really like the traditional bar and Victory isn't like that at all. The whole place is very well ventilated so one can appreciate their beer and not a smoky haze. The fans also add some noise reduction so you don't have to listen to everyone in the room. All and all a nice atmosphere.

Quality - Victory is known for quality. Every facet presented was of quality.

Service - Mediocre at best. Our waiter didn't know what was available on tap. Our food was long awaited. Nothing was recently updated, so a lot was unavailable that we were led to believe otherwise.

Selection - Good beer selection. A few beers I had never had before. Although (not surprisingly) they only offer Victory beers.

Food - Oddly enough (considering it's Victory) the food was the best part of the trip. I split three different pizzas (Bruschetta, Amalfi and Heartland) with three of my friends. It was cheap and delicious.

Value - The food was very decently priced. I was pleased. The beer though was very expensive. I expected the cases and six packs to be substantially cheaper than what I am used to paying. It was not at all. I can get everything cheaper in Baltimore. The growlers were outrageous as well. Simply ridiculous. A 22 oz of their flagships was $4. Not too bad, but considering that it is all profit to them, a little high. As a bar, it is reasonable. But to buy something for the road (not literally of course) it is a rip off.

HUGE space, great service, great beer (love the separate line for pours away from the bar seating) and really damn good food.

Great selection and food. Bartender filled my growler w the wrong beer. Didn't discover it til I got back to my hotel room.

Great changing menus with a wide selection of Victory favorite beers. Want a treat? Try the ice cream. Get there early for dinners and weekend lunches.
