Paste Magazing: Victory Top 4 Breweries of The Decade

4. Victory Brewing Company
Headquarters: Downington, Pa.
Established: 1996

Our Favorite Beers: Braumeister Pils, Hop Devil

Most craft breweries leave the pilsner style to the big guys who’ve corrupted it.

Congrats to all the Breweries who have made the top 25. These are exciting times for Craft Brewing and beer in America!
