Victory Declaration Nation Ale


Brewed by Victory Brewing Company
Downingtown, Pennsylvania USA
Style: Brown Ale | Ratings: 7 | Alcohol: 6.2%
Featured and brewed in an episode of Esquire Network’s Brew Dogs, starring Scottish beer evangelists (and star brewers at the UK’s Brewdog PLC.) James Watt and Martin Dickie, Victory’s Declaration Nation Ale just might be the most American beer ever made. With a small batch actually brewed atop a float in a Fourth of July parade, this historical ale recipe features traditional ingredients used during the colonial era brewing, including molasses and stone-ground corn, but with a very modern twist. The final ingredient, added as fireworks lit up the Philadelphia sky, is 328 million copies of the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence, to represent all of the people living in USA! Don’t believe us? Watch the trailer here.
