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.
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!
Stop on the way back to DC. Pretty nice space, large and open. Easy lot parking. Large bar area with some tables as well. Service was solid. They well taster flights; you pick five, for like $7 or so, which seems reasonable for the area at least. Really good variety of taps, including all the "100’s" and an eclectic selection of other styles. I stayed German on my visit, mainly cause I have tried much of the other stuff. The beers were solid, but then I know that Victory is solid. Nothing new there. Nice top on any beer journey.

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.
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.
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 better brewpubs of one of the best craftbrewers in the northeast. I highly recommend you visit this place if anywhere in the area...worth a detour too. Along with Dogfish & Smuttynose...probably the best 3 non-Belgium brewers in the northeast. Really fun place to drink & hangout. I just went back here again over the 4th of July weekend. The beer selections were fantastic. I especially loved the Ranch DIPA that can only be found on draft. Also, Storm King & Hop Devil on the hand pump were a joy. The food here is really good too (love the fried pickles!)
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.
2011: One of the largest selection of on site 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 call a taxi from this pub. Seemed we were the first people ever requesting a cab. The waitress drove us home after she finished and cleaned all tables, very nice service.
Came again on 16.3.2016. Still impressive beer selection (30 Victory beers on tap). They now tap Hop Devil with C02, Nitro and from the Hand Pump. Had my first IPA tapped with Nitro. Really like the large flags displaying all their signature beers hanging from the ceiling. Food was good and reasonable priced. World class brewpub!!
Large and open with high ceilings. Place was PACKED when we showed up on a Saturday afternoon. Luckily we were just stopping in for a beer and a growler fill. Due to the vast openness and high ceilings that noise in the place really gets loud. The bartenders were really busy but were also really cool and personable. I wasn’t sure if they’d fill my non-Victory branded growler but it was no problem. My only disappointment was the lack of "pub only" special brews. I expected there to be a couple I’d never heard of. Not a big deal. I had a kolsch that was about as fresh as can be and the alt bier, which was a great beer. I’m very glad I finally got to stop in and would like to make my way back here sooner than later.
