Q: Will you send me a free t-shirt or stickers or something?
A: If you earn it! If you take Victory around the world with you and send us a photo of our beer or our branded merchandise near a recognizable landmark, we will send you a free Victory t-shirt. You show off your love, and we’ll send you some right back!
Q: I’ve heard that some breweries use corn in their grains for brewing. I was wondering if you use corn in your beer?
A: The only Victory beer that has corn added is our Throwback Lager. This is a pre-prohibition style lager that is only available on draft in the spring at our brewpub. All other Victory beers are made with barley or wheat malt. We do add dextrose, which is corn sugar, to some of our beers (Golden Monkey, Hop Wallop, Sunrise Weissbier, Yakima Glory and Storm King). This sugar shouldn’t impact allergies because its constituents are broken down during fermentation at the brewery, but if you have an allergy we recommend checking with your doctor before drinking the beers we mentioned above.
Q: Eclat Cocoa Lager: Is it coming back? Please say it is.
A: Thanks for your love of Eclat Cocoa Lager. Brewed with cocoa from West Chester-located Eclat Chocolate, it was a specialty one-time brew in celebration of our Sweet 16th birthday. That said, we occasionally do re-release brands that we expected to be one-offs. While we don’t have plans to brew Cocoa Lager this year, you never know if/when we’ll do it again.
Q: I see there are plans to release a batch of Oak Horizontal but are there any plans to brew and bottle the regular Old Horizontal?
A: This year, we had the availability brew up one batch of Old Horizontal, and chose to do so specifically for the Oak Horizontal project. Old Horizontal is the beer that takes us the longest to brew and as we’re operating at capacity, we have to make the hard decisions about what gets priority. Since we’ve been asked for years to barrel-age some Old Horizontal, we decided to answer that plea this year.
Rest assured, your longing for Old Horizontal has been heard, and we hope to be able to give you what you want next year, once our Parkesburg expansion brewery is up and running.
Q: Can I work for Victory?
A: Maybe! We list all employment opportunities on our website under employment. Take a peek. See if you’re a fit for any of our positions. We’re looking for talented, passionate individuals for a number of openings.
Important: Please do not inundate us with phone calls and resumes. Ability to follow directions is considered as we evaluate candidates for employment.
