Back in 1978, Bill and Ron attended their very first concert together at Philadelphia’s premier concert venue: the Spectrum. As they rocked out to Ted Nugent, Bill and Ron became part of Philadelphia’s entertainment history. Little did they know, 33 years later the Spectrum would be just a memory. And they certainly had no idea that 34 years later they would have the opportunity to put their own stamp on Philadelphia’s social scene.
Philadelphia is an incredible, thirsty, beer-loving city with craft beer enthusiasts who demand variety and quality. In two weeks, when Victory Beer Hall opens, those discerning beer-lovers will be treated to a variety of Victorys, including many of the specialty beers we serve in Downingtown.
It is our hope, that by partnering with XFINITY Live! Philadelphia to open Victory Beer Hall, we can share our Locally Brewed, Locally Loved philosophy with a larger audience than we can reach in Downingtown. And it’s not just about us. Visitors to Victory Beer Hall will find our Philadelphia-area craft beer friends on tap too.
We are thrilled to be able to make our beer more readily available in Philadelphia through this venue. But we want our fans to know that Victory Beer Hall is not another Victory Brewing Company. In fact, the beer hall is a joint venture between Victory, Comcast-Spectacor and Entertainment Consulting International. That’s the legalese to tell you that what you will experience in South Philadelphia will be a wholly different atmosphere than what you get from us in Chester County.
Victory Brewing Company operates and manages the restaurant in Downingtown. It is the very-best spot to drink the freshest Victory beer. While the brewery is a travel destination for many beer aficionados, the atmosphere at the Victory Brewpub feels familiar, like a neighborhood bar.
Victory Beer Hall is operated by XFINITY Live! Philadelphia and will be a Philadelphia craft beer destination and social experience. Victory Beer Hall allows Philadelphians to enjoy an eclectic mix of beer styles in a high-energy, party atmosphere. Guests will sit at elongated beer hall-style tables, enjoy live music and share toasts with one another.
What’s the Same?
Both the restaurant at Victory Brewing Company and Victory Beer Hall are dedicated to the beer. The VBC mission is instilled in every employee at both venues. In fact, Victory is directly involved in the training and education of Victory Beer Hall employees to ensure a similar first-class experience to the one that visitors now find at Victory Brewing Company’s brewpub in Downingtown. No matter what differences exist in the atmosphere, both venues were built to showcase and celebrate craft beer.
We have an incredible amount of pride when it comes to our beers and our city. We couldn’t be more excited to have the opportunity to share that local beer and local love in a venue so near and dear to us. Who knows, maybe we’ll even convince Mr. Ted Nugent to make an appearance on the Victory Beer Hall Stage, right where the Spectrum once stood.
