Our restaurant general manager, Matt Krueger, conceived of this event as a way to bring people together for an exciting and unique event to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. More than 600 runners signed up to run through treacherous terrain. Along the way, they were surprised by natural hazards and a few staged challenges as well (like a man wielding a chainsaw).

We heard from many racers that this course was one of the most challenging they’d ever faced. We’re pretty proud of that.

Luckily for the runners, after completing the crazy course, they were greeted by our restaurant staff and our Brewpub on Wheels, serving BBQ and cold beer. No matter what place the competitors finished, they were served a Victory!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for this inaugural race. Because of your participation, we were able to make a significant contribution to LLS and aid in their quest to find a Victory Over Cancer.

    There’s some good spin, buddy 🙂 Tough course and start time, but good times and good cause.

    Thanks, you thirsty fleet feet, for the participation and comments! We are trying to get the course designer, who ran it like 7 times, to be more sympathetic for 2013 run. It may take us that long to convince him, BUT, we have beer…

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…
