Barchet and Covaleski have combined for five Hall of Fame beers: two from Baltimore Brewing, one from Old Dominion Brewing, and now two from Victory.

My friend Paris Cunningham visited Victory in March 1996...here's what she had to say about the place:

The place is big; it is a converted warehouse. The bar is a light wood as are the bar stools and all tables and chairs. There is no rail on the bar! The stools were hard for me to sit in, not made for women. They use only whole hop flowers. Hops from America, Germany, and Czech Republic. Beer is only sold in 12 oz. ($2.50) and 22 oz. ($3.25) glasses. ($2.50) and 22 oz. ($3.25) glasses. Samples were big, ~3-4 oz. Sample set was $5.00. Samples were big, ~3-4 oz. T-shirts were $8.00, $11.00, and $20.00. Got some beer mats, very few around the bar. No logo on their glasses. I had a 12 oz of the IPA, and one of the Dopplebock.

Alert Pubcrawler sends this November 1996 update:

Just wanted to let you know that Victory has added a foot-rail to their bar (!), the Fest has been made maltier and more authentic in style, they've added Sunrise Weiss (a hefe), Moonglow Weizenbock, an as-yet-unnamed Russian Imperial, and have their winter beer in the tanks, a 10%-ish barleywine called Old Horizontal.


My Opinion Of The Beers That I've Tried:
17.5 points overall
