Only second to Goose Island Clybourn. Here you’ll find oodles of beers, one or two on the hand-pull, and there is always an exciting seasonal or two, or three, available. They also have a retail area for bottled beers and gear, although the gift shop closes rather early on some days. But bottles are always available for take-out. Their pizza is very tasty. Vegetarian is also available. Regardless of the extremely unusual location, I’d drive here from an hour or two away every other day, if I lived within closer proximity to this beer temple. Dirt-cheap growlers, which is always a plus.

Not much to the inside - but who comes to Victory for the Ambiance. Stopped by a few months ago on a Saturday. Came off peak hours (3ish) due to brining my toddler along. Pizzas are good. Beer is the best!

Lunch and beer November 2003. Hard to find the first time; not well-marked and tucked in the corner of an industrial park. Cinderblock walls painted in retro pastels. Surprisingly, only 8 or 10 &quo;normal&quo; beers on tap, non of the cool stuff I really wanted to try. A few sixpacks-to-go available, including ’fest (that wasn’t on draught). Good service at the bar, good wings and pizza, good beers. Overall nice, but nothing special.

Most of their stuff is on-line. The night I was there, there were 3 years of Old Ho, 2001, 2002 & 2003. The Hop Devil wasn’t so good but everything else was. A few pool tables and a decent gift shop.

About the ambiance is all said here before. The food was ok. The Service behind the bar was great, at the tables ok. The selection of their beers on tap is amazing. Very cool place - worst hangover in my entire life after that night - but a great little plastic monkey as a keepsake which came with one of my serveral Golden Monkeys :-)

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!

So-so ambiance. I mean, it’s a warehouse with tables, basically, no real charm or character. Service was rather good, server knew plenty about beer and was prompt. Food was good for me (a pizza), lousy for my wife (fish and chips and the fish had been treated badly by having too much breading and being overcooked). Selection, in the end, is the big thing, and it was just spectacular. Loads of brews on tap here that don’t make it outside the pub, which is tragic, as the world needs to see the mild and the hellerbock. Great ESB too. It’s Victory, and that alone makes it a worthwhile destination.

Victory is a must visit destination! I have had a lot of Victory beers in my time but nothing prepared me for the 10 new beers I would find at the Victory brewpub. I ordered the sampler, 16 5oz samples for $20. It is a great way to try it all. The food is decent and the staff helpful. The beer is the story of course and what a great story it is. We were there for an early Saturday lunch and the place was not overly crowded which definitely helped as far as level of service goes. I can see where this place gets packed and the service level would drop a notch or two.

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!

The brewpub had a very long bar area leading into a cozy dining area. The beer selection is one of the best I’ve ever seen (the full sampler contains 16 six oz. beers!!) The food is very good, reasonably priced, and I’ve always had good service here. As a bonus, they sell their beers in the back room, along with pint glasses, shirts, and some other items. Great place. Update from 5/18/08 visit: This place’s interior looks great now, although it still looks like a smacked ass from outside. The service I had on Sunday absolutely sucked. It’s the first time in 5 years or so that I’ve stiffed a waitress. Service was slower than slow, and the waitress screwed up my wife’s order several times. I place the bulk of the blame on the owners, who really need to hire more waitstaff, and start hiring experienced waitresses rather than Hooters-reject coeds. As for the beer, the selection is top notch. The quality has fallen over the years, but they had about 20 draft offerings. The food was OK, nothing to write home about, with portions seeming to be a lot smaller than they were in the past. Until service improves, I’ll only be going here for growler fills.
