Monster Mutant Mashups?

Victory RELUCTANTLY explores the art of mixing beers.

It’s October and that means two things. Phillies post season baseball and Halloween. While we celebrate the Phightins every day, we thought this year we would throw a little treat into our bag of tricksIt’s no secret that ever since Bill and Ron started producing beer there have been Mad Beer Scientists who mix them together to see what happens. Some German trained brewers may scream in horror at the mere idea of mashing together their pure-bred flavors, but we convinced Victory Brewmaster Bill Covaleski to try these mutant beers on camera for the first time and give his real opinion.

For those mad ‘mixologists’ at home, here is a quick guide to the Victory’s Monster Mashups:

  • Silver Back: 1/2 Golden Monkey and 1/2 Storm King Stout
  • DarkDevil: 1/2 HopDevil and 1/2 Storm King Stout
  • Monkey On The Moon: 1/2 Moonglow and 1/2 Golden Monkey
  • Don King: 1/2 Donnybrook Stout and 1/2 Storm King Stout
  • Mad Monkey: 1/2 Golden Monkey and 1/2 Mad King Weiss
  • Victory Half n’ Half: 1/2 Prima Pils and 1/2 HopDevil

Have you created your own Mutants with Victory beers? Are we missing any from this list?

    My choice is the "Black Ho" which is 1/2 Old Horizontal and 1/2 Storm King. I like to think of myself as the unofficial creator, atleast in the south jersey area.

    Fire Water! Scarlet Fire & Headwaters – better than you’d think.

    Never had any of those, but Wopazontal, 1/2 old horizontal and 1/2 hop wallop is really good.

    I always heard it as Dirty Old Ho (Storm King in the Old Horizontal). I first got it well before the expansion, so I’m unsure of whether it’s the original nomenclature.

    The great people at the brewpub made this one, which is delicious. Love-Meister: 1/2 Summer Love and 1/2 Braumeister.

    Monkey Julius! 2/3 Golden Monkey, 1/3 OJ, and a splash of champagne. Perfect “hair of the dog” morning drink.

    Been mixing the storm king and hop devil for years. I called it a Storm Devil. Delicipus!

    Never thought of doing this before seeing this video, but drinking the Victory Half and Half right now, and boy is it good! Should have known my two Victory favorites would be even better together.

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…
