Victory Brewing Company is a brewery founded in 1996 in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA. The main brands are HopDevil, Prima Pils, Headwaters Pale Ale, Golden Monkey, DirtWolf, and Storm King, which are distributed in 34 states and 9 countries. Victory Brewing is located at 420 Acorn Lane Downingtown, Pennsylvania 19335.HistoryFounded in 1996 by Ron Barchet and Bill Covaleski in an old Pepperidge Farm bakery, Victory has grown considerably and evolved well outside the traditional small market of a beer-brewing restaurant. The brewery's first three beers were Victory Festbier, Brandywine Valley Lager (now Victory Lager), and HopDevil Ale. Initially they thought that the malt forward Victory Festbier would become their most popular beer. However, they soon realized that consumers craved very hoppy beers, such as HopDevil Ale, the most.BreweryThe brewery uses an automated, energy recovery, 50 BBL system designed and manufactured by Rolec in Chieming, OberBayern, Germany. Victory also brews using traditional methods where appropriate, such as using the energy intensive decoction process for production of certain German style lager beers. Victory uses whole hops.The restaurant was completely remodeled in spring of 2008 with a new focus on smoked barbecue. A growler filler was installed during the renovation that allows any of 20 draft beers to be routed to the counter-pressure growler filler. This device includes a CO2 evacuation step, increasing the shelf life of the beer compared to direct spigot filling. The growlers are 68 oz., which is approximately.53 gallons or 2 liters. Victory makes their own root beer, which is also served in the restaurant.

  • Great atmosphere, beer, and food. Get the pretzel, fried pickles, wings, or shrimp tacos and you shouldn't be disappointed. Plenty of other good things too.
  • I have been to Victory many times over the years. Their menu is at a high point. Their self produced beer has an extensive selection and has a number of unique offerings. Their non alcoholic root beer is great. The crab chowder was one of the best that I have had. Great prices on growlers and fills. Great, unique ice cream. Fun place and they know their beer.
  • They used to have nice big burgers! Now, they're TINY!! $12.00 for a small burger, no thanks. ...good thing it came with fries, OTW I'd still be hungry. Good beer, good people, nice looking place, though...just don't buy a burger. :)
  • I have no idea about this place, although I do plan on going sometime soon. What I am here to talk to all of you out there is... Victory Headwaters beer is AWESOME!!! I am a craft beer connoisseur (self-proclaimed), but I especially love IPAs. Headwaters has slowly risen to the top of my list as being just The GoTo beer. I love trying new beers and recipes but if you are ever in question of what kind of beer to drink... Headwaters is it. Even if you are an avid domestic beer drinker who has had no luck in trying IPA's you like... trust me... you will like Headwaters. For those experienced, and have not tried it... go for it, you will not regret. Just my 2 cents. Vic
  • get the Korean wings! I love Victory brewing company. The food is always great and the beer is amazing. When buying our current house, I was WAY too excited to be close to this place.
