I made my first visit to Victory for a Friday after Christmas lunch. I was disappointed that there was only one other table full and an empty bar at noon, but the bar and half the tables filled up quickly. This is not a pretty place. It is in an old warehouse but it has been recently remodeled and painted and is very clean. The bar is large with great high-backed stools. The dining room is a warehouse-type place with blonde wood furniture. The ceiling is open to the pipes and ductwork. It's a look that works for a brewery.

They had 15 Victory beers on tap. All my favorites plus a number that are not bottled, available only here or in select local establishments. The wife and I tasted five different beers, and they were all excellent. An added attraction was the draft root beer for my son and daughter. They loved it. The service was quick, efficient, and friendly. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the beer and the food.

The food was great with a wide selection of wood-oven baked pizzas, German pretzels, pastas, big salads, sandwiches, and other entrees. We had a Victory pizza (great), a grilled salmon salad, a brat with onions and pepper, and the topper a 1/2 pound Victory burger with roasted pepper, carmelized onions, and cheddar. They also have a Belgian dipping sauce for their excellent fries. This one is worth many a return trip.

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!
