What an awesome place. Bustling (for a Sunday afternoon) with families and non families alike. Plenty of seating but still had a short wait for a table (not complaining, just pointing out the popularity). Seated by a friendly server and immediately informed of what was rolling off the tap line. Brought my son with me so I just had a sample of something that I'd get a growler fill of. Food was excellent, everything was enjoyable. If you are passing through or in the area, please take the time to drop in. If you are doing a brewery tour of eastern PA, this place has got to be on your list.

Made a stop here on a Friday afternoon/evening after hitting Troegs and Stoudts.

A nice bar and a good selection of Victory beers, but I got the feel more of a chain restaurant that happens to carry exclusively Victory beers than a brewery with a bar/restaurant attached. It felt a lot like the satellite Dogfish brewpubs. The bar service was good, but nothing great. A lot like any bar on a Friday evening. Beers are good and you'll get more Victory than you'll normally find in most places obviously. Nothing in the place led you to believe you were at the brewery and the gift shop was pretty small. Enjoyed it, but wouldn't go out of the way to get back.

I had an incredible afternoon and evening at Victory. Very busy, but the staff is very attentive and helpful. The tap selection is incredibly diverse with firstrate beer, and offers something for everyone's taste.
I enjoyed the food I was served (Fish and Chips), and ogled what others at the bar ordered. It all looked and smelled delicious.
A large, spacious old building, well converted to new use for the brewery and pub. A very pleasant atmosphere. A small store space, but well stocked.
I can't wait to go back again soon. Victory does it right.

Pros-

Since moving to the area, this has been a go-to place for me and my family. The atmosphere is perfect, especially for those with young ones looking to have a night out without the worry of bothering the table next/across from you. The food is great but, the beer is better.

Cons-

Attempting to go on a Saturday evening can result in quite the crowded and long wait for a table. The bar will certainly be crowded and can be difficult to order a beer for your wait. The parking lot also reaches its maximum capacity fairly quickly. Although these are inconveniences, I do like that the business is doing well.

stopping by on a Saturday afternoon might not be a best idea to do. found seats at the beer. waiting a while to get served

Atmosphere- was good but being that busy they need more staff. a few wet floors from spill beer.
quality was also good

service could of been better. They need one bartender to pour drinks for the dinning area so they would not ignore the people sitting at the bar.

Selection was great. 20 or more beers on Tap. not sure if all were available

Food was your Average bar pub food Had better food else where

Value was reasonable.

I would like to try to get back here , but not on a Saturday Afternoon.
