Contributed By:  Chris Bowers (Thanks Chris!)

Victory Brewing Company was founded in 1996 by two childhood friends who met on a school bus in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania.  As the two friends grew in age and subsequently their love for craft beer, they began a friendly challenge of seeing who could make the best home brew.  After training in Germany to learn the art of brewing according to European traditions, the two got back together and started their brewery in the same town that they met as kids, Downingtown, PA

Victory’s slogan is:  “European Tradition….American Ingenuity”. Enjoy this Belgian Tripel tonight as you welcome our second snowstorm of the winter!


Advent Reflection: Think about the child that is coming to us this Advent season.  The prophet Isaiah captures the magnificence of this child so beautifully. 

Isaiah 9:6-7  “6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.
