    Of course, the beer is delicious (Storm King is my favorite), but even the food here is good! If you aren't sure which beer to get, they offer small portions at a reasonable price.

    If you want great beer and great American food - this is your place. During the evenings it can get loud but the energy is awesome. Its a great place after the game! Don't forget your growler! Read more

    Fantastic selection of brews, and good food to go with them. I highly recommend the soft pretzel with a cold beer or two.

    The service is outstanding and the vegetarian options are all very tasty. Ask to be seated in Dave Graham's section - he's awesome!! Hubby loves their beer! 🍻

    Taco to Meet You on every single Monday is to die for. Get a large beer and all your tacos are half off. Get the pork with sour cream on the side!

    I'm pushing for legislation that would cut taxes for small breweries. The Small BREW Act would help small breweries like Victory Brewing by cutting the excise tax that small breweries pay. Read more

    So many choices...can't go wrong with Golden Monkey (higher alcohol %), Uncle Teddy's Bitters (an English style pub ale akin to a Boddingtons), or their regular lager.
  • Lynelle H.

    Their pizzas are excellent, and the selection of beers continues to grow. Since they've renovated, there is a lot more seating. Very kid friendly eating, too.

    Flights are well designed, cheap pub grub, and generous pours of excellent beer. Fantastic variety and quality of beers.

    The tour of the brewery is short and not really exciting. I'd recommend spending time at the bar and tasting the beers.

    Come hungry and thirsty. Leave happy. But not before filling up a Growler first! It's the perfect way to enjoy draft-only brands, limited releases, or any of your Victory favorites.

    Celebrate Christmas in July every year on July 25, when Victory cracks open several vintages of their Old Horizontal barleywine. Beware, though: "horizontal" is how you might end up at 11% ABV.

    A serious beer drinker living too close to Victory Brewing Company’s bar is like David Duchovny living down the street from a whorehouse: fun, sure, but it’s not going to lead to anything good.

    Try whatever they have on hand pumped cask! It is less carbonated, cellar temp, and super smooth.. much different than the same brew on tap

    Go on the free tour on Saturdays at noon, bring a beer with you. It's short and sweet with a lot of information on how the company got started. Then get the wings and a whirlwind!! :)

    Great beer. Horrible service, save for a few awesome bartenders. They say they seat in the dining room until 9:45, serve until 10. But get there before 9:30, otherwise they won't.
