Atmosphere: This place is nice a roomy without feeling like a dancehall. I have never gone in and felt crowded. The color scheme is nice and the lights and decorations made from copper tuns make a beer enthusiast smile.

Quality: From the beers on tap to the cleanliness of the facility to the well made food, this place can really lighten your day and make you enjoy the time you spend at Victory. I left ready to come by again.

Service: It can get busy at the bar and service is a little slow if this happens, but they are very good and treating the customers well. When I received a wrong order (partially my fault) they brought out the right food at no charge, gave me a beer on the house, and I got to keep the meal they brought me by mistake (which turned out real good anyway). Whatever short comings the duration of service has, it makes up with above average customer service.

Selection: If you drink Victory at home, you know about half of their beers. The beers on tap have that rare instance where they are as good, if not better than by bottle. They also have a wide selection of food.

Food: By far the best part of victory is thier beer and food pairings. These guys know the PERFECT food to go with your beer, and they make the food perfectly. Try their mini-pizzas!

Value: Sure, some of the food lurks into pricy territory, but the food is so amazing that you can forgive the extra dollar or two. The beer is also cheap, but that goes without saying.

They also have a brewery tour, which is pretty great. I went on a weekend when it wasn't in action, but I hear that it's better on weekdays. And even better, it's free!

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!
