Wow - stopped here with the wife recently while on vacation. The new bar is impressive. The whole place had beautiful hardwood floors and wonderfully done wood paneling and bar. Copper brewkettle/mash tuns had been cut in half and hung as decorative awnings about the bar area. A large collection of beer 'antique' cans and paraphernalia decorate the walls. If anything though, the place was a little too bright and new - but this will change with a little time - at least the 'newness' of it all. The service was decent, but very young, most likely local college students working for the summer. Most of them seemed around 21 and didn't seem to have much beer savvy, but I suppose this is to be expected given their age. (For example, the wife wanted a Sunrise which wasn't available, but Mad King's Weiss would have been a very acceptable substitute, but wasn't suggested by the staff.) Nonetheless, we received prompt enough service. For a brewery/brewpub the selection was fantastic. There were approximately a dozen beers on tap - many varieties I'd never seen from Victory before - as well as four favorites on cask, including Hop Devil and Hop Wallop; both of which were absolutely wonderful. The food was also very good - I highly recommend getting something with the Hop Devil BBQ sauce.

Overall, I was very pleased with this visit to Victory and hope to return in the future. My wife had an old college friend nearby and we can visit anytime she wants if it means being able to stop here again!

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.
