It’s time to answer all of your most pressing Victory questions! E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and ask us anything! We will respond in a future blog post. Here are the latest questions:
Q: Is Victory attending/competing in the Great American Beer Festival?
A: Yes! We will be in booth C18 serving Prima Pils, Festbier, Summer Love Ale, Headwaters Pale Ale, Ranch Double IPA, Helios Ale, Golden Monkey Tripel and Storm King Stout.
We will also be participating in the Snyder’s of Hanover Beer & Pretzel pairing on Friday, Oct. 12 and Saturday, Oct. 13.
Q: Do you guys ever do anything special for Halloween? Like trick-or-treating for adults?
A: For our local fans, this year we are hosting a Victory-inspired costume contest that we’ve dubbed Get Up and Ghoul. Judged by local beer celebrities, the best-dressed attendees will win beer, swag and more. Get the full details here. Hope to see you there!
If you aren’t within driving distance, we still encourage you to celebrate the spooky holiday with some Victory. We encourage you to trick out your treats! Try our candy pairing suggestions for turning your kids’ treats into adult indulgences.
Q: Do you ever sell unused or busted kegs to homebrewers?
A: At Victory, we refurbish all of our own kegs in order to continue using them for Victory beer and do not have any available to sell for home brewing. More importantly, we encourage all home brewers to consider purchasing actual boiling equipment specifically made for home brewing.
The solid kettles that you can purchase at homebrew stores have flat bottoms specifically made for the evenly-distributed heating required for brewing, whereas our kegs are not flat on the bottom and are less-than-ideal for using as brew kettles.
Q: I recently discovered Victory Lager (it is amazing). But for some reason, I am having a hard time finding it near me, in either MA or NH. Where can I find this delicious brew!?
A: We’re thrilled that you appreciate our intricately balanced Helles-style lager. We are here to help you track it down near you! Try our web-based beerfinder OR download our free mobile app for Android or iPhone. The app will use your phones GPS system to locate our beer near you.
Q: When is Victory going to release an Alt and a Kölsch (because they would be delicious), and let the fierce rivalry play out within the confines of the brew pub?
A: Good news! We do brew both a Kölsch and an Alt, which are available on-draft at certain times during the year. Our Kölsch is released annually, usually in June and our Altbier is typically available in August.
We have never released both simultaneously here in the brewpub, but we’ve compared the customer commentary and sales, and Kölsch wins the popularity contest between the two.
Keep an eye on our on-tap list when you’re visiting us in Downingtown and be sure to try them when they are available.
