Victory has a lot of great beers on tap that do not make it out of their brewpub. Plus you can find old favorites and new ones on the Hand Pump. Not to mention the food is outstanding with new additions to their menu everyday!
One of the best tasting experiences I have ever had. Got multiple samplers because they had 22 beers on tap, and then several free beer samples because they were house "blends" of beer. They were delicious and the bartender went out of his way to make sure we tried everything and had a good time. He was also genuinely interested in what we thought of each beer. Worth noting- they have a beautiful automatic growler-fill machine... wish I lived closer!
A wonderful tour (if you can have Matt lead it, he will amuse you greatly!) followed by a great meal. Everyone here is friendly, from the waitstaff to the gift shop guys. The prices are astoundingly reasonable for top quality food. Here in suburban NY, you really have to suffer with average beer more often than not if you want great food, at Victory, you get it all. The most expensive entree was $21, but more than half of what they sold went for ten bucks or less. The onion rings are a definite winner!
This may not be the place for you if you are kid-averse, it seemed like every fourth visitor brought along a tyke. But it wouldn’t surprise me if this were the very best restaurant in Downingtown, and with the prices and the kid-friendly atmosphere (kid menus, arcade, and toddler hi-chairs) I don’t blame families for coming here for a getaway from the ordinary.
The only thing i really look forward to when i come back to PA is victory beers

From the outside this place looks similar to an broken down warehouse. It was the old Pepperidge Farms building. Inside, I was told they had just remodeled. Contemporary hardwood floors and dark red/brown hardwood bar, ...nice look. Excellent place!! I was in the area, and Ginny’s nephew Doug treated us to lunch and brews!!! Thanks Doug, it was fun talking about beers!! Excellent selection of beers. Five hand pumps and 16 drafts, and you cannot go wrong with these brews. Excellent food, nice selection on the menu. My only complaint, and I hope Victory will make a change, is that you can but cases and 6 packs. I wish they sold individual bottles of mix and match (I understand pricey and rotation of beers), but many people I’ve talked with would have bout 16 or so different beers if there was a mix and match. That’s the only reason I am deducting 2 points, otherwise, a great place to visit!!
This is one of my favorite breweries so far. The bar is huge and the overall look of the restaurant is open and clean. They don’t skimp out on the beer servings. 16-20oz glasses for even their imperial stout and ipa. The food was good and they had some excellent lunch specials. Bartenders were very friendly and had no issues giving me samples of beers I hadn’t tried. I will definately be back next time I’m in town.
Pretty much the coolest place to go in PA. They have like 10-14 beers on tap at once, with an engine. Plus, they have samples that you can buy individually, based on ABV. I had 11 while there. The place is funny because it’s built basically in a warehouse, the ceiling is 20ft high, at least, with concrete floors. Interestingly enough, the food is quite good. And the beer is pure victory. Awesome place.
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.
