Q: How long have you worked here at Victory?
A: It was 5 years this past August.

Q: What is the best thing about your job? And the worst?
A: The best is getting to interact with the public on a daily basis. There are so many great fans of Victory and they love to let us know about it. The worst is probably dealing with a customer that has had one too many Golden Monkeys. People should know their limits.

Q: What was the worst job you ever had?
A: That’s tough. I’ve enjoyed all of my jobs. I worked at a gas station after high school and that was pretty boring.

Q: Tell me something about yourself that no one would know just by looking at you.
A: I am a total video game nerd.

Q: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Why?
A: A professional ice hockey player.  I grew up playing and still love the sport.

Q: What do you miss most about being a kid?
A: Playing dumb kid games (flashlight tag, kickball) with the neighbors.  I grew up in a great neighborhood with a ton of kids all around my same age and it was great.

Q: If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?
A: A Philadelphia Flyers Stanley Cup win.  I’ve had my heart broken so many times. It would be awesome to see it.

Q: Finish this sentence: Beer is…
A: better with friends.

Q: What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod?
A: Ramble on Rose by the Grateful Dead.

A: I would spend more time with my wife and family.

Q: If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?
A: I’ve always thought that Spiderman was the coolest super hero. I would have his powers.

Q: Which celebrity do people tell you that you resemble?
A: I get Joe Rogan or Dave Matthews.

Q: Who is your celebrity crush?
A: Ryan Gosling

    Nice to “meet” you man! I got to admit, Golden Monkey is probably my favorite beer and don’t see it changing anytime soon! I grew up 45 minutes from “dahntahn” Pittsburgh and LOVE my steel city sports, so… sorry about the Flyers thing. I can let it slide though. I am also a HUGE Dave Matthews fan and I can see the resemblence; Hey you could be called alot worse! It would be killer to be able to visit the Brewhouse, my wife and I have never made it there yet. We still live relatively close to where we grew up(actually close to Youngstown, Ohio now). Anyway, I just wanted to say “hi”, we love a plethora of Victory beers and are loyal drinkers. We usually get ours from our city’s Giant Eagle- they have a very nice selection of beers. Feel free to let me know of any promotions if possible and include me on any mailings or email lists. I am the Ham Manager for the Salem plant for Sugardale foods, so feel free to ask any questions regarding my business as well!
    Thanks again for making world class beers!

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…
