Definetly one of my favorite. I went to a victory tap takeover at a bar, 21 different victory beers on tap. Everything was awesome.

I had never had them until I was getting some scuba training in Bethlehem, PA, and the only place I could find to buy beer was a "case store". It was nothing but bmc and mixed cases of Victory. Prima Pils, Hop Devil, and Golden Monkey are all rockin' brews. My only issue was the Headwater pale ale....... That beer is dreadful. Terrible. A beating, even.

But hop devil puts me in a forgiving mood

I enjoy all of there beers, Hop Devil is my favorite by them. I have a friend who takes his Corny there and gets it filled, what a great brewery.

They are in the process of opening a second location which, I believe, will be much closer to Lancaster.

Cool, thanks for the info. Last time I was there, I googled it and it was pretty close to where I was staying. Closer would definitely make it easier.

There's a certain spicyness about Hop Devil that makes me believe there might be a small amount of rye in the grain bill. Just a hunch.

Sad to admit I live about 30 minutes from Victory (outskirts of Lancaster) and have yet to make the trip, but plan on it. I did have some of their brews and impressed so far. Yes, the new location will be in Parksburg which is closer to Lancaster.
