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.
It’s stil the best brewpub that I’ve been to as far as beer selection and quality. And unlike other larger Micro’s (Dogfish Head), they have brewpub-only beers, so you do feel like there’s a reason to go to the brewery.

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.
And since apparently I must be more verbose, I’ll repeat myself.

This was a good experience on the PA trip. The food was pretty standard bar stuff but the beer sampler certainly had some large glasses. The restaurant side seems to be a mix of people hanging out playing pool and people who are there for the beer. I would recommend it.
I am from Colorado and I was very excited to go to Victory, being as I had tried alot of their beers and loved them. I was very disapointed however, as the service was the worst I have ever experienced. It was not busy the night we went but the server acted as if we were inconveniencing her. We ordered some very good Barleywine, but after we finished she didn’t come back! I went to the bartender and tried to order a pitcher and he told me he couldn’t do that. Confused, we paid our bill and left.

I visit PA at least once a year and I’ll come here at the drop of a hat. I’m able to take the commuter train so I don’t have to worry about getting looped. Wide selection of quality brews is the draw. I used to come here expecting specifics but learned that will often disappoint. Now I sample the currents then latch onto what I like best, and almost always at least one pleases me immensely. Food is good, plentiful, and priced right. I’ve often seen the locals in here having a non alcoholic drink with their "feed". Got hit with a serious pine sol smell once while there but I try to visit them in the early/mid afternoon when customers are scarce. Great place.
I’m upping this place a few points, been years since I first rated it. The Prima Pils is one of my all time favs.
This place has a unique atmosphere - it’s a real blue-collar bar, hidden in the back of an industrial complex, serving up a variety of world-class beer. I wonder if the locals even have a clue about what they’re drinking. Their new brewery is large, and they have a large amount of floorspace to expand. The bartenders seemed a bit overworked and flustered while I was there, but that turned into them forgetting to charge me for beer....so no complaints here.
