The popular blog Stouts and Stilettos that focuses on covering craft beer created by and for women has published an in-depth review of the latest Victory Brewing Company family member, located in Parkesburg.
The review includes the full experience, starting with the taproom of the pub and ending inside the brewery and is full of praise for this latest addition to the pub and brewing landscape.
The taproom can seat 400 guests who can quell their thirst with some of the 30 different Victory brew selections from the 90 taps located throughout the building, an enviable number for any brewpub location.
“Once inside the spacious, two-story taproom, I stopped dead in my tracks to take it all in, the polished concrete floors, table tops made from reclaimed white oak wood from a Chester County barn, cinder block exterior walls, exposed duct work, steel, glass and various architectural elements painted in primary shades of yellow, red and blue. Just from seeing all this I was grinning from ear to ear,” writes Chelsie Markel describing her first impression.
She also describes the menu, saying that meat lovers are going to be thrilled as “there’s lots and lot o’meat. Three custom grill/smokers are used to create authentic, great-tasting barbeque. It’s all wood-fired and is the shining star of the menu.” She also praises the food for its variety, and points out that there are several options on offer for vegetarians. A self-guided, after dinner tour, earned the brewery additional praise.
“The tour at this facility is one of the best of its kind with lots of interactive displays, video screens, fun facts, bold graphics and peak-a-boo windows to look down into much of the brewery. You get a real live look at the equipment and ingredients that are used to produce Victory beer.”
A more detailed tour and a discussion with her hosts brought to the forefront the emphasis on efficiency and environmental friendliness, as well as on consistency and high-quality resulting in her giving the pub and brewery a solid two thumbs up.
