vibe: 5 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.5 | food: 5

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 really enjoy having Victory so close to me. The staff is very nice and knows their stuff. The beer selection is great and the food selection and preparation is very well done.

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.
