    I just returned from one of my regular (but not as often as I’d like) visits to Victory. A new beer for me was the Headwaters Pale Ale. I really liked it, so nice job! The floral nose was exceptional and this really is a year round drinker.

    as a homebrewer, I’m always interested in what goes into a brew. In this case you have citra hops, which I’m keep to give a try, but what yeast are you using?

    thanks, and keep it up!!!

    Just had one of the few I’ve managed to smuggle back up here in Canada. One of the best I’ve ever tasted, simply delicious!

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…
