Huge industrial complex, second only to Stone, I think, of the brewpubs I’ve visited in the US. Extensive number if beers on tap and available for growlers - a steady atream of growler customers. Came and went all day. Both food and beer were tasty. Worth a visit.

For a brewpub located in a brewery which is located in what looks to be an old factory in the middle of nowhere, this is a pretty cool spot. They have a fairly massive parking lot as well as large dining area. Lots of wood trim and some interesting ww2 era memorobilia decorate the wals. They have 20 different taps plus 2-3 on hand pump that range in all the various styles victory produces plus some beers that are exclusive to the brewpub. The pours were very generous. Even the food on the late night menu was very good. I especially loved the pretzel, though $5 is a bit pricey. The service was outstanding and when the bartender realized the kitchen forgot to put in my pretzel order, they comped me a pint. ("You give a man a fish and he eats for a day. You give a man a beer and he’s your friend for life." Gandhi) The coolest thing was their growler fill machine which seems like something out of a science fiction novel. I could watch that thing do growler fills all night long. Definitely one of the best experiences I’ve ever had at a brewpub. I will definitely go back.

These guys make what are probably the most consistently outstanding line of beers I’ve found anywhere. My 2003 visit here was kinda like going to Mecca. They had a phenomenal array of their beers ready to serve, the food was groovy, and the staff friendly. I can’t wait to get back.

Have spent a few boozy afternoons here, most recently on 25/05/12 and cheeky follow up on the 27th (growler run for BBQ).
Have always arrived mid afternoon and plonked myself at the bar. It tends to fill up after work and can be 2 or 3 deep by 6pm. Service has always been top notch for a bar that can get very busy quickly. Samples freely given.You’d be surprised howmany growlers they knock out here, usually one member of staff sometimes two manning the automated growler machine!
20 beers on tap, 4 on cask, all Victory. The cask beers are always served correctly and topped up for a full pint, unlike certain other US beer establishments. Decent enough bar food. Shop around the corner on the way although nothing too interesting. I’ve found the rarer beers are tap only seasonals so you’re unlikely to pick up anything in the shop that you wouldn’t elsewhere in PA which is a shame! Always a good time in Victory!

Wow! This place kicked ass! Not a beer geek place at all- rather just a really cool place to have lunch/dinner. Tons of families, children, all ages. Bar was stocked with practically every Victory offering plus man tap-only and at-the-brewery-only rarities. Had some beer engines going: Storm King on cask anyone? Awesome food, great lively atmosphere. Loved it.

Located in an industrial park, which I’m used to, but I’m not used to find such a large, expansive restaurant in an industrial park. Large, sprawling restaurant with lots of seating areas and a large bar. There are tons of selections on draft, including two cask selections. The beer is mostly very good. It’s fairly priced and there is beer to go by growler, six pack, case and singles in the larger formats. Very nice counter-pressure filler on the growlers. The parking is OK, but it was pretty crowded with a few spots left at a time when the restaurant was nearly empty. A pretty wide ranging menu that is reasonably priced. The meat pizza (I forget the name) was tasty. My server was very good and she obviously made quite an effort to learn about the beer. The beer list is awesome... a book with a full page for each beer with a ton of information. Definitely a nice touch. There is a gift shop with prices missing on a lot of things, which was mildly annoying. Overall, this is an excellent overall stop. Well worth the visit.

One of the largest selection of home brewed draft beers I have ever seen comprising of all varieties (IPA, Belgium style, lagers,..). Nice bar and huge seating area. Burgers great. You cannot get a taxi from this pub. The waitress drove us home after she finished, vey nice service.

Not too much else I can add about this place. I came for the beers, not for anything else. I indeed got the beers, including some 03 Stormy on Cask!

Big clean place with a big bar. We were seated off the beaten path and the service suffered a bit because of it. Got a sampler of great beer and a few appetizers, the best of which was the pretzel. They had a ton of beers on tap, probably around 20. After wards we went to the gift shop and bought a couple of 750ml’s and 22 oz’ers. Overall a great place and would go out of my way to stop in again.

Went here for lunch one weekend. Tried many new beers with a buddy of mine, including splitting a bottle of V12. Many of the beers were good. Some, I just couldn’t rate them all before palate overload. The food was mediocre, and the service was horrible. Perhaps sitting at the bar is better, but back in the ’dining room’ is bad. Ambiance was nil - like eating in an industry cafeteria. Maybe in the last year they’ve improved, but just go for the beers.
Stopped in recently and got to see the new interior - much nicer than the previous layout!
