- Raise $500 and receive a $50 Victory Brewing Company gift certificate
- Raise $1000 and receive a HopDevil or Golden Monkey cycling jersey
Another sunny June Sunday and another world-class bike race. Man, we are fortunate.
It took more work than ever to pull off this year’s TD North Philadelphia International Cycling Championship due to budget constraints, but many pitched in. I am proud to say that we contributed our greatest asset, delicious beer, to become the official beer of the race.
I also got to thank Mayor Nutter, first-hand, for . . .
Aren’t Press Releases great?
We know that Blogs are supposed to be more than just another outlet for traditional ‘push’ media. They’re supposed to be about conversation and transparency, etc. Well, yeah, we believe that to be true, but the problem is that we have this really cool Press Release about Bill and Ron that we had written up and we thought it would be silly not to at least give you the option of reading it So if you’re not too offended by this blatant breach of ‘social media’ etiquette, feel free to read our big news and let us know what you think:
Want to join Bill on Champions Row on Sunday? Hang out near the Winner’s Circle, get a chance to watch the 3rd lap climb on The Wall and enjoy a special VIP buffet and an open Victory beer tap. We have one VIP pass for the person who gives us the best tagline for the brand-new Victory beer blog. Either leave your idea in the comments below or Tweet us @victorybeer before noon (EST) on Saturday, June 6th.
Mention the words “bike race” to anyone in the Philadelphia area and their response is not just any bike race, it is THE bike race. Brightly clad riders spinning by at break-neck speeds or pedaling valiantly up the Manayunk Wall as they traverse the Philadelphia International Championship pro cycling tour course. This is the

Wow, on the same day we learned that the New York Times chose Prima Pils as the best pilsner they could find, we also find ourselves pitted against the upstart Philadelphia Brewing Company in a contest for Philadelphia’s “Golden Local” hosted by NBC Philadelphia. Now, we are confident that our Philly area fans will recognize […]
The Victory Prima Pils, which was our No. 1 pilsner four years ago, again came in on top. It seemed to be alive in the glass, with wonderfully refreshing bitterness to balance the floral and citrus aromas.
According to Eric Asimov’s latest article in the The New York Times, our bat buddies up the Jersey Turnpike have a very serious and immediate problem (besides facing our Phillies). They don’t have . . .
In January the creek was in no mood for intruders. Heavily iced, it hissed its brittle protest as I moved out deeper into the stream, further stirring its peace and fleeting dreams of sanctity. The East Branch of the Brandywine Creek was under siege, but it was not me who was its adversary.
Within my view was the silent site where plans for a 180 room resort hotel taunted and menaced the creek. Seven miles south of me, and much closer to our brewery, plans were moving forward to divert the creek, rip its existing bed open, and strip vegetation from the Ludwigs Run tributary, all to lay a larger gas transmission line in. But under the dark winter sky and these portent circumstances, I managed a smile for the photographer who was covering the article on the Brandywine Valley Association, the creek’s friend and protector. It was a smile born of hope.
