Background: Victory Brewing Company 2010

October 21, 2010
Oktoberfest Social / Brewery Tour


Join us in Victory! (Stay to watch the Phillies after our event)

Join us on Thursday, October 21, at 5 PM, for our 4th annual premier fall social event, Oktoberfest ’10!  This year, the Delaware Valley Section once again returns to Victory Brewing Company, manufacturer of highly acclaimed, award winning beer. Take this opportunity to network with members of the Wilmington Section, which again joins us as a co-host of this year’s event. This event continues to be highly popular… Don’t delay; reserve your spot, now!

Based on positive feedback from past participants, this event features:

  • The always fresh and entertaining tour of the brewing process
  • Networking opportunities
  • Socializing
  • Casual, relaxed atmosphere
  • Open buffet of tasty food
  • Insanely delicious beer

Victory is, first and foremost, a state-of-the-art brewing plant. It is unlike most trendy brew pubs and microbreweries, whose very limited manufacturing capability is secondary to the restaurant and bar operation. Adding 8 new fermentation vessels in August, Victory’s brewery expanded its annual capacity to over 100,000 barrels of beer. Their highly desirable, award-winning beers are marketed in at least 23 states and are known around the world. Sample Victory’s award-winning beers, including Victory’s Festbier, recently featured on TV’s “Cooking with Emeril” and in Imbibe Magazine’s Sept/Oct cover story, 50 Best Seasonal Beers.  Their Prima Pils has been named one of eight great pilsners of the world by Gourmet Magazine.

We’ve watched their facility expand (toured their new brew house, met in their new beer hall of the renovated restaurant). There’s always something new to check out, be it a state-of-the-art Austrian growler-filler, a centrifuge, or the recently installed German-built fermentors and supporting solar array.

Another highlight… Our Victory hosts are always informative and entertaining. Who can forget 2008 when our animated host, Matt, busted open a bottle of Golden Monkey with a machete? More beer ended up on him than in the “Drunken Mussels” recipe he was demonstrating!

If you haven’t been, come see what everyone is talking about. Bring a friend, co-worker, or spouse. Plan to beat the traffic by arriving early. Even if you can’t make the (optional, but recommended) tour, please join us for the complimentary beer tasting, food, and socializing that follows.
