Rumor has it that Victory Brewing Company will be distributing a portion of it's line here in Nashville around June 15th! After one frustrating month of job hunting, this puts me in a good mood. If you have not had their beers, you are in for a real treat. I can't even remember how many times I have stopped by their Downington, PA brewery and restaurant while on business.
The three beers we are supposed to be getting is Hop Devil, Prima Pils, and Golden Monkey. Hop Devil is an IPA that was influenced by Sierra Nevada Celebration. Prima Pils is one of my favorite American pilseners. For those that think that Miller Lite is a good pilsener (by the way it's an American light lager and NOT a pilsener), then you might as well stay home. Prima Pils has flavor! Golden Monkey is classified as an Abbey Tripel and comes in at around 9.5% ABV. While some Beglian beer purists may knock it, it's easy to drink and great gateway beer into the style. Be careful with it, too many too fast will hurt you bad. Real bad.
If anyone at Victory is reading this and needs a regional rep- I am not working. I need funds to stock my fridge with your beers! wink wink.
