Red Wednesday: a Recap Poem

Twas the morn’ before Thanksgiving and all through the lot
many drinkers were stirring, as early as 6 o’clock!
The cases were stacked in retail with care.
Quantity was limited; the brew was quite rare.

Customers were lined up all ready to buy.
Doors opened at eight, beer began to fly.
Bartenders were ready; the kegs had been tapped.
Upon the first sip of Red Thunder, guests squealed and they clapped.

When out in the parking lot there arose such a clatter.
The first purchase of Red Thunder stirred up some chatter.
Into the brewpub, they flew with a flash
to buy up the beer to add to their stash.

Devin MacNeill and friend were the first in line and the first to claim Victory with their case of Red Thunder.

The sun on the tanks was a glorious sight.
Casting the luster of morning and dazzling light.
When what to our wondering eyes should appear,
But a slew of Victory regulars for breakfast and beer.

Serving numerous samples and many full pours
Red Thunder on-draft was available no more.
Two kegs had been kicked in three-hours time!
So bottles were served with the breakfast sublime.

Red Wednesday time-lapse at the bar. 8:00a.m.-midnight.

Serving french toast, sticky buns and yum-tastic quiche
with Prima Mosas and more, our breakfast was delish!
The crowds kept on coming through lunch until close.
Red Thunder sold out; we said adios.

Watch as Red Thunder cases disappear from retail.

All day long, we filled growlers with glorious libations.
Giving patrons a treat for their holiday celebrations.
As we closed down the restaurant, we shouted, “oh boy!”
Red Wednesday was over, “cheers and enjoy!”

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…
