I have tried this place a few times, and I leave every time with the distinct feeling that this is a brewery first, restaurant second. The atmosphere is average, and not very welcoming. I can't blame them for using the spacec as they did, they squeezed it into the corner, but designed the space quite oddly. The quality is of course good, butI have never had good service there. 6 bartenders, and 6 walk right past you, have been unattentive and uninterested, seemingly. Of course the selection they have on and rotating and great. Can't beat Sorm King on tap.

great food and fun vibe at this local brewery. went to high school a few minutes away and loved getting food there with my family. large selection of beers with a few nitros at all time. sell all beers in the brewery store with a nice selection of t-shirts and other merchandise. run limited release beers every little while only available at the brewery which are definitely worth attending. if your nearby this is one place i would recommend visiting if your a fan of good beers and good food.

i was so stoked to finally get to check this place out. hop devil is one of the beers that got me into craft in the first place way back when, and this felt like somewhat of a pilgrimage to go to the original victory brewery. the place is huge inside, despite not being much of a looker from the outside, its enormous. they have a big dining room right when you walk in with a very long bar and bar area in the back, made to feel cozy with dark wood and copper accents around the place, and it was absolutely packed. we got a table right away though, and recognized almost all the beers on the list. i was a little disappointed to not see more tap room only or one off beers, but we found a few. of course every beer we had here was great, its victory after all, but i was really pleased with the doppelbock, which i had not had before. the place was swarming with kids, maybe a little too family friendly, but they have an arcade area in the back for them, so that helps a little bit. service was good, especially for how busy they were, and the food was pretty solid. i had a nice mac and cheese, but it was served less than fully hot, which is of course a turn off, but it tasted great. i like a bustling veer hall vibe, a tall glass off quality brew, and feeling like i am part of something cool, and thats exactly what you get in here. i know they have several spots now and have moved a decent amount of the brewing out of here, but it was a wonderful experience to check out where it all began. really enjoyed our brief time in here!

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.
