Victory Fists of Feury

Formerly brewed at Victory Brewing Company (ABV)
Downingtown, Pennsylvania USA
- English Pale Ale | 6 Ratings | Special Release |
Terence Feury and his brother Patrick, who are both accomplished chefs, have collaborated with their friend Bill Covaleski, owner and brewmaster of Victory Brewing in Downingtown, to create a special beer for this year’s Philly Beer Week. The beer is in honor of the two chef’s father (and Ellen’s 6th grade elementary teacher) who has been an inspiration for both Terence and Patrick. The process of developing the beer began with Terence and Patrick home brewing their recipe. They collaborated with Bill to perfect the recipe which then was created by Bill and his team at Victory. A limited release of 60 kegs can only be enjoyed at Fork, Patrick’s restaurant Nectar in Berwyn or for sale at Victory.
