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.

PLACE/PHYSICAL ASSETS: Visited Victory while in town for Thanksgiving. I was immediately surprised by how HUGE this place is - WOW, it's giant. Very long bar (that was incredibly packed to the gills), huge dining hall, and numerous adjacent rooms with food and beer service.

BEER: I always judge breweries on beer offerings available on-site not available elsewhere/to the general public, and Victory did not disappoint. Their D'Town Drafts selection was pretty great, and had something for just about any palate preference. The highlight of the evening was the Earth and Flame bourbon barrel aged scotch ale. Just a really well-balanced beer despite a lofty ABV. Highly recommend this in bottles (as they just released them). They also have a beautiful growler - one of the nicer I've seen.

FOOD: The food was pretty good for a brewery. Definitely perfect for soaking up beer. Had the hummus and the pulled pork sandwich (which was tremendous, actually).

Overall, Victory is definitely worth a stop, and locals certainly were there in great number.
