This microbrewery is in my town....I guess my review isn't completely unbiased. We moved to Downingtown in 1997. Victory Brewing wasn't quite as famous then as it is now. In fact, it took us a while to "discover" it. They didn't even have a brew pub when I first found out about it. Just two beer lovers who made a good beer (Prima Pils), won awards, and....the rest is history.

Over the last few years, we've been going to the brew pub. It's nice to have a place with a lot of local flavor which doesn't close until late. Most places in Downingtown are quiet after 10:00 pm but not Victory's brew pub. Always has a lot of people. Families. Couples. Young professionals. College kids. A good mix.

The service is decent and the food is excellent. We are vegetarian and we always find something here that pleases the whole family including the kids. The best part of course is the selection of Victory's beers. The beers are fresh and taste a little better than what's sold in bottles at the store. Plus the brewery usually has something on tap that they're not selling in bottles. You can also try their sampler -- I've loved it in the past, although I know my tastes better now and stick to mostly the tried and tested or --- if the description is really attractive --- might try something new once in a rare while.

A *must* visit on your beer tour...and try the Prima Pils here -- it's fresh and compare it to how you remember it from a bottle.

I'm fortunate enough to live nearby to the brewpub (and new brewery location as well!) and have seen it undergo several transformations over the years. However, regardless the look, the quality is a constant. Although the Downingtown location is a bit tricky to find and the parking can be a nightmare (it shares the location with several companies), it's well worth visiting!

Always a great taplist with brewpub only treats, and the growler filling system is pressurized and second to none! From the food perspective, you can never go wrong with the following:
Taco Mondays, trice fries, the wings, fish and chips, the jerk grinder, or the Heartland pizza (assumes they'll stay on the menu, always take a peek though!)

What more can I say? You should probably visit here when you're in the area...
