Introducing the all new Yakima Twilight

Featuring four hops from America’s heartland of hop-growing, the Yakima Valley of Washington State, our new Yakima Twilight serves as a celebration of American hops. “I thought of hop farmers as I formulated this beer. I wanted to create a malty platform to showcase the intense flavors and aromas that these dedicated hop-farmers have developed in their wonderful hops.” stated Ron Barchet, CEO and co-brewmaster of Victory.

Dark malts are also featured in Yakima Twilight making for a challenging beer to brew as achieving balance between the strong flavors of fresh, whole flower hops and deeply roasted malts is no easy feat. The brewmasters and brewers are confident that they have struck that balance in this unique, strong ale that weighs in at 8.7% a.b.v.

“We strive to keep an exciting array of beers in development for our audience to eventually enjoy. To some extent, our restaurant serves as a great focus group, allowing our customers to tell us which newly developed beers that they really enjoy. It makes obvious sense to us to take their suggestions and continue producing beers that they find appealing.” said Bill Covaleski, president and co-brewmaster of Victory Brewing Company.

Look for Yakima Twilight in 12 oz. bottles and on draft in most territories served by Victory from November 1 through January 2010. And, if you are in the Philadelphia region, you’ll not want to miss the culinary premiere of Yakima Twilight as The Next Iron Chef competitor, Chef Jose Garces, has paired dishes to Victory beers, including Yakima Twilight, for an exciting event at his Chifa restaurant located at 707 Chestnut Street in Philadelphia, on November 5, 2009.

    Fantastic news! I really enjoyed it when I stopped by the brewery a few months back. I see the short window of availability…will this be a limited time or recurring seasonal variety?

    In response to above question on availability, we do intend to release Yakima Twilight annually, each November. Of course, this depends on our audience enjoying this new product! – Bill C. @ VBC

    I was very happy to see Yakima in bottles yesterday when I was at Victory to get my weekly mixed case. What a nice surprise. Now I don’t have to worry if I forgot my growler and Yak is on tap. It is my favorite new Victory beer, last time it was on tap it was so popular we could not get growler fills.

    Oooh I can’t wait to try it! Last time I went to Victory, they were all out of it!

    I just tired this last night. The look thourgh the bottle and the description alone made me as anxious as a little kid to get home and try it. Well, it was indeed what it claimed to be, a Malty Hope farm. Beautifull blend of bitter and floral hops and rich malts. For a Malt lover like me who misses that rich bavarian style malting, this was just perfect.
    Man I hope this is available year round. What a complex boquet ale. The type you expect to see come in a 22 ounce bottle in a six pack. Couldn’t be better.

The Victory Brewing Story

The story of Victory Brewing Company starts on a school bus in 1973 when fifth-graders Ron Barchet and Bill Covaleski stepped aboard, on their way to a new school. The two became fast friends and remained so, even as they grew up and went to college on opposite coasts. Just months out of college, Bill’s appreciation of good beer and access to his father’s home brewing equipment inspired him to explore the hobby. That same year (1985), Bill gave Ron a home brewing kit as a Christmas gift. With that, both Bill and Ron developed their love of the craft…
