This was my second trip to Victory, this time just to grab a few brews and a few six packs to go.

Walk in and its a rustic setting, seating on both sides and then the bar in the back with additional seating adjacent. There were some high tops around the bar and being it was busy, my cousin and I ordered at the bar and stood there until some people left at the bar.

The quality of all the beer is impeccable. World class pilsner beers and of course a stellar regular lineup and some mixed bag beers there too, everything being pretty good.

Service was decent. We had a few at the bar and the bartenders were pretty good about checking on us. We even wanted to buy six packs and some of their home made icecream to go after the store closed and they hooked us up.

Selection was good, at least 20 draught options, a solid food menu too with many options.

It may be unfair to grade the food here, as all I had my first trip to Victory was sweet potato fries (very good) and this time the Storm King Crunch ice cream was all I got, and it was easily some of the best ice cream I have ever eaten. Ive never done lunch or dinner there so take that for what it is.

I love Victory beers, and the brewery is just the mecca of such. I am lucky my cousin lives 10 minutes away, next time I'll try more of the food there.

The place that started my craft beer obsession. Always a solid option for dinner and drinks. Food can be hit or miss sometimes especially for my wife but I usually enjoy what i get. The jerk grinder is my go to food option. Staff is friendly and fast. It does get packed and noisy on the weekends but I still love the atmosphere of the building.

Since I grew up just a half an hour from the brewery, I've visited this quaint little facility and have always had great food, great service and an overall enjoyable experience. As far as I know they only keep their beers on tap. And its always well kept as far as cleanliness. When in Downingtown, check it out.

Destination visit in Downington PA. Large bar area with tables in a hallway off to the side. I was there for lunch, so the din was low and attendance was building. Probably 15-20 beers on tap to choose from, with unstructured samplers competitively priced. Growler fills as well. Broad menu, pretty much what you'd expect with good variety. Nicely made sandwiches which feature the various beers in dipping sauces. The server was quite conversant on the beers and was interested in the tasting I was doing. Finish with a visit to the bottle shop and merch.

This place is absolutely the best! Always have a choice of 4 cask conditioned beers, 3 nitros and at least 15 draughts. The food is excellent and the service is top notch! Cask conditioned Hop Devil is truly liquid crack!!!
