The Philadelphia area has been blessed with great "home-grown" beer places popping up ... there are a number of good ones in the city, like the Yards brewery. However, there are a couple of good ones in the suburbs as well. Victory Brew Pub, located in Downingtown, is a very, very cool place, with lots of REALLY good beer. Some of their "classics" are Hop Devil (as you can guess, very Hoppy), Golden Monkey (a great Belgian effort), Lager (a good lighter beer that the women who like light-beers will enjoy), and the Braumeister Pils (a fantastic German effort).
The beers can be purchased at beer distributer's in the tri-state area ... not sure if they can be purchased anywhere outside of this area (maybe online?). I'd highly recommend you getting your hands on some of these brews (if you love beer, of course).
If you find yourself in Chester County, a trip to the brew pub in Downingtown should be on your list of things to do the burgers, pizza, and wings go very well with the beer.
I've got two words for ya - Sar-casm. If you aren't hip with that, you probably should just click to the next blog. I blog about my daily life, current hot topics, stupid conversations, or just about anything that is on my mind.
