DOWNINGTOWN, PA, June 24, 2014 –Victory Brewing Company® (Victory), the popular Philadelphia-area craft brewer has a new take on the pint with the launch of Victory Ice Cream. Pints, which will retail for $6.49, include Hopped Up Devil, Triple Monkey and Storm Drop. They will roll out in the Greater Philadelphia region and be available for purchase at Kimberton Whole Foods and the Victory retail outlet in Downingtown by the end of June. Additional retail outlets are expected to be added as production capacity permits.
Victory ice cream is made with wort, the flavorful, non-alcoholic liquid that results from the brewing of malted barley and fresh Brandywine water, which is the base of some of Victory’s most popular beverages. Because of this, the ice cream provides a combination of flavors reminiscent of Victory beer within a rich and creamy gourmet ice cream base.
- Hopped Up Devil, based on HopDevil IPA wort, marries cinnamon, organic coffee, cayenne and luscious chocolate flakes to create a cold, sweet, velvety treat with a kick.
- Storm Drop, featuring Storm King Imperial Stout wort, blends deep chocolate drops against a creamy chocolatey-stout base reminiscent of malted milk balls.
- Triple Monkey, which uses Victory’s popular Golden Monkey wort, combines full-flavored banana and a delicious pecan swirl to satisfy all your taste buds.
“We’ve been making ice cream with beer wort in our brewpub for years and have had such great feedback from our fans that we wanted to introduce the Victory experience to a larger audience.” said Victory’s President and Brewmaster, Bill Covaleski. “The fans who are familiar with Victory beer will recognize the subtle tastes of some of their favorite brews in these delicious desserts. It is great to be able to share the flavors that our fans have come to love with those younger and older than 21. This is exactly what we are able to do now with the deep richness of Victory ice cream.”
