Older Bud No Weiser – A 1996 Craft Brewer’s Reunion

1996 was a seminal year in craft brewing. It nailed the high water mark for craft brewery openings and that class of 1996 included such luminaries as DogFish Head Craft Brewery, Stone Brewing and Victory Brewing. Locally, you can add Flying Fish Brewing, Yards Brewing, and brewpub powerhouse Iron Hi

ll Brewery to that class of ’96. And if you put all six of these breweries and their founders in a room, what do you get?

         Don’t miss thie historic get together. Buy tickets today!

Expect side splitting stories of perseverance and perversion as Sam Calagione (DogFish Head), Bill Covaleski (Victory), Gene Muller (Flying Fish), Tom Kehoe (Yards) are ‘moderated’ by Greg Koch (Stone) while they sit down, sip, and tell tales as part of “Older Bud No Weiser” on June 10, 2010. Hosted by World Café Live for 200 lucky guests, this two hour trip down brewery lane will feature a d.i.y. video that the lads put together featuring themselves as failed brewers, washed up in 2010… Of course their failure never happened and the great beer continues to flow because you, the thirsty craft beer fan, supported their foamy efforts. Thank you. Thank yourself! If you are not up for dropping another well-spent $25 bucks to get with these guys and five of their beers, you can glimpse the video trailer above.

Older, Bud No Weiser, indeed.

    Your 1996 reunion event is a great idea—but you’re missing one of the class of 1996—-The Bullfrog Brewery in Williamsport, PA. The Koch family started The Bullfrog in August of 1996—I was there then, and I’ve been there (maybe too often!) ever since. Terry is one of the most prolific and creative brewmasters on the east coast, and the beer and food always continue to amaze us. The Frog is packed every day of the week all year round, and they have more live music than any brewpub I’ve ever seen! I’m sure it’s too late to include them now, but please consider the Bullfrog for your next celebration! By the way, the Victory Hop Devil is my alltime favorite beer. Jim Maule, Williamsport, PA

    Guys…this is freakin’ awesome! I wish I could make it out there but I just won’t be able to.

    Thanks guys. Thanks for helping to show the world that yes, America does indeed have it’s share of seriously passionate brewers, that make some seriously amazing beers. That we’re not just a country of fizzy pee colored water. 😉

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…
