Q: Even though your flagship brews are absolutely awesome, do you have to fight the urge to want to tweak the recipes every now and then? I am sure you get to exercise your creative side with all the other great beers Victory makes, but does anyone ever contemplate such ideas as “x will make HopDevil even better?”
A: You’re absolutely right. We can’t resist that urge you’re talking about. The best example of what you are suggesting may have been WildDevil, our HopDevil brewed the same as always, but fermented with brettanomyces yeast. That first experiment lead us to try barrel aging to see how the character of both the wood and the previous product might positively effect the beer’s flavor. Dark Intrigue, Red Thunder and soon enough, Oak Horizontal and White Monkey – these are the ways we prefer to experiment with great, established recipes.

Q: Will St. Boisterous be available in bottles this year? Or do I have to subject people with a grown man hissy fit again?
A: Well, looks like you better put on your adult diaper, grab your blankie and prepare your fists of rage for another hissy fit. Unfortunately, St. Boisterous will only be available in draft form this year. That said, we have some old favorites making their return along with some new recipes in the works that we are sure will calm all of your fits.

Q: When will you start shipping to KY?
A: Once we are up-and-running in Parkesburg, we will be able to consider expanding distribution into new markets. Let us know if you think there is a demand for Victory in your state.

Q: When will you start making gluten-free beer??
A: We’ve heard this questions many times. The truth is, we have yet to taste one we like, but we have not given up on the idea. We are always searching for ways to create a gluten-free beer worthy of the Victory name.

Q: How’s the quest for a “light” beer coming?
A: We have many light beers in our repertoire. Some are light in color, and others are light in body. As far as calories go, we have those beers listed below. Enjoy!
Victory Lager: 145 calories
Summer Love: 160 calories
Prima Pils: 165 calories

    I tried your Prima Pils draft. It tasted like canned Schhitz or Schaefer.

    So sad to hear that St. Boisterous will not, once again return for the coming year. There is serious lack of Bocks, and particularly Maibocks available in 12oz bottles in the US. I was always good for a case each year.

    Damnit I want my 2009 Victory lineup back!!!

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…
