Victory Headwaters Grant

Thursday, September 17, 2015 | Environment, Sustainable, Victory


From the good folks at Victory:
Victory Brewing Company’s commitment to the environment runs deep. It was the nearly pristine water that led owners, Bill and Ron, to establish the first brewery in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. This water source, the East Branch of the Brandywine Creek, is a large part of the great flavor of Victory beer that their fans have come to love. When the time came to open a second brewery, it was a simple decision to keep it on the same water source, which is why the state-of-the-art Parkesburg, Pennsylvania brewery is located just 17 miles away and receives its water from the West Branch of the Brandywine Creek. In order to continue delivering consistently delicious, flavorful beer, it is critical that we keep the water clean, not just in our local Chester County, but across the country.

Five years ago, Bill and Ron established the Headwaters Grant, named for the beer which pays homage to the importance of clean water. For every bottle of Headwaters purchased, a portion has been donated to the Grant. Victory has been able to donate nearly $35,000 to local water advocacy groups and make a great difference:

“The Headwaters grant has enabled the Guardians of the Brandywine to pursue their mission to protect and preserve the Upper East Branch of the Brandywine Creek. With Victory’s Headwaters funds, we have established a stream monitoring program at four sites along the Upper East Branch, have restored riparian buffers with tree plantings and have established a Headwaters scholarship for college students studying our watershed.” - Guardians of the Brandywine

Association As of September 1, 2015, Victory will donate a portion of all Headwaters sales nationally. Our local wholesale partners, Gretz Beer Company and Penn Beer Company are showing their support of this important cause by generously donating a portion of every case equivalent of Headwaters Ale sold. With your help, we can make an even larger impact.

This Sunday, September 20, marks the first Victory Run for the Headwaters 5K.  It will begin at 11:00am at Victory in Downingtown.  The race (run or walk) will raise money for the Headwaters Grant, which funds water advocacy groups that work towards keeping the Brandywine River clean.  Please join us as a runner, walker, or volunteer and help make a change!  With your participation, you will receive a free beer (or root beer) and item from Victory’s Brew Pub on Wheels.

To participate as a runner or walker, please register here.

Goose Island Oktoberfest and Autumn Ale

Thursday, September 17, 2015 | Featured Beer, Goose Island


Goose Island brings you two distinctive fall beers this season, an Autumn Ale and their version of an Oktoberfest.

The Autumn Ale is a great, heartier choice for hop-lovers. This is an amber ale with a piney aroma and spicy hop flavor–courtesy of Elk Mountain Farms-grown hops–that still maintains of brown-sugary backbone to keep it grounded. 6.7% ABV

Their Oktoberfest is a great example of the style, and perhaps not as heavy as some others, making it very drinkable. It’s full of sweet, candied aromas and flavors like toffee, burnt sugar and dried apricot, finished by the earthy bitterness of Hallertau hops. 6.4% ABV
