    I got my first case of Summer Love. I love it. I haven’t ever had a Victory that I didn’t like but this is different. Again you have separated yourselves from the pack with one of a kind brews. I see more awards coming!

    I was disappointed to hear that Victory Sunrise and Moonglo would nor be available in bottles this year, cause attributed to the expansion. Alternately,I decided to purchase a half keg (6-9-12)of Sunrise and bottle myself to preserve this fine product. I was aware the web site listed the ABV down to 5.7 from the typical 6.7, but was more disappointed to find the Sunrise at 5.0. Is this a version of Sunrise Lite??? This brew lacks the character of the fine wheat products that I have been purchasing from Victory since 1997. Is their an anti-wheat conspiracy afoot at Victory?? I would like to know why this product changed so drastically from previous years when the quality rivaled beer produced by Theo DeGroan (Ron’s associate)at Baltimore Brewing years ago. Let’s get the wheat up men! Prost!

      We are as disappointed as you are about our capacity constraints. Thank you for loving Sunrise enough to purchase a 1/2 bbl. We are not sure where you’ve seen Sunrise listed at 6.7% or even 5.7% ABV. The highest ABV we’ve ever achieved with Sunrise was 5.9% last year. That was after it had been 5.4% the previous year. One of the great things about seasonals is that we’re not locked into a completely stringent recipe. The recipes for seasonals can vary slightly year over year.

      Sunrise Lite is certainly not our intention this year, and we are pleased with how the recipe turned out. Definitely no anti-wheat conspiracy as we are still brewing Mad King’s Weiss a-plenty and our new Alla Spina Novello features wheat as well.

      Cheers to you and thanks for your comments and support.

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…
