Victory St. Boisterous: Yeah, That’s the Ticket!

Some folks are so competitive, it’s almost pathological.  The minute you see them you know you’re in for an earful of how great they’re doing, how much money they’re making or whatever their latest conquest or acquisition might be.  And don’t bother trying to top them – whatever you’ve achieved, they’ve done better, whether it’s […]

Of the many places Don and I saw while at Victory, the hop freezer made quite an impression.  Victory uses whole flower hops in just about every beer they brew, and they keep a bunch of them in a walk in freezer by the brew kettle so they have hops on hand when it comes […]
