Victory founder Bill Covaleski and Ron Barchet talk 25 years of Victory Beers
After 25 years, Victory Brewing isn't slowing down. They're goal to Brew Forward means they're doubling down on quality, commitment, and community.
As we talk with founder Bill Covaleski and Ron Barchet we discovered what it means to be a successful brewer. Barchet is once again able to homebrew. That's success, growing to a point where you don't have to be on the brew deck all the time and can finally enjoy a homebrew. He's done it up right, too. His barn is designed for brewing, with the drains and all, plus a 1 Hectoliter (around 25 gallons) brewhouse. That's how you do it.
Victory's Brother Love IPA is a tasty brew and we learn more about that beer and its mission. We talk about what it was like 25 years ago, what they think of today's brewing scene, and what they see in their crystal ball for the next 25 years.
We sip some of that Brotherly Love and some Sour Monkey. And Brian brings the heat with a vintage bottle of 2015 Sour Monkey. Good times. #drinkyourcellar
