Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, and I think this is going to be my best one yet, at least as a craft beer geek. My wife and I are abandoning the kids and heading out for Downingtown, Pennsylvania for the weekend to visit the Victory Brewing Company.
As many of you know, Victory was one of my favorite brewers before Don and I visited their brewery last May, and that trip only served to solidify my admiration for Bill, Ron and the rest of the crew. That’s because their brew pub shows just what enormous beer geeks these guys are, sporting all sorts of funky selections on tap that you can’t find anywhere else. The food there is also creative and delicious (but not pretentious) and I can’t wait to try the Golden Monkey pork sliders! I’m going to gain five pounds in two days.
It’s rare that my wife and I do anything big for Valentines, but I’m attending a bloggers brunch for their new Headwater Pale Ale on Sunday, so we decided to make a weekend out of it. I’m really excited to spend some quality time with my lady while eating and drinking my way into a mild coma. Good thing they have decent cab service in Downingtown.
Are you doing anything special for Valentine’s Day this year? Are you going to be at Victory this weekend? Either way, let us know below, and happy Valentine’s Day!
