Get a Taste of Victory at The Beer Junction

unnamedVictory Brewing was founded in 1996 in Downington, Pennsylvania by Ron Barchet and Bill Covaleski (they met on a school bus in 1973 when they were in the fifth grade), and they opened the brewery in an old Pepperidge Farm Bakery. Victory is one of only a few breweries in the country that uses whole flower hops in its beer. Almost all breweries used pelletized hops instead. Whole flower hops are a purer form, and the brewers at Victory believe they impart better flavor and aroma to beer. In 2010, Victory brewed 58,850 barrels of beer (approximately 19,520,545 12-ounce servings) and their 2013 annual production was 102,973 barrels (approximately 34,156,144 12-ounce servings)! On Thursday, 10/9 (5-8PM) at The Beer Junction, you will have the opportunity to meet Melissa Twist from the brewery, try some of their beers, and see for yourself why they are so popular. And with their recent Great American Beer Festival win, we can only expect more exceptional beers from them in the future! Our tasting event with them will feature the beers listed below.
