I've really been enjoying their beers lately. I've had the Storm King(9.1% stout), Hop Wallop (8.5% DIPA), Hop Devil(6.7% IPA), Golden Monkey(9.5% Belgian Tripel?), V- Twelve(12% Belgian), and for the first time today... the Yakima Twilight(8.7% Strong Ale?).

They are all pretty aggressive and big beers. My local beer store just got the Old Horizontal barleywine. Looking forward to that. I know they make quite a few others that I haven't been able to get my hands on locally. For example, they make a version of the Hop Devil called Wild Devil that's fermented with wild yeast, an 8.5% baltic porter called Baltic Thunder, and a few others.

Anyone else loving Victory beers?

Probably my favorite brewery. I've got a bottle of Wild Devil that I have not tried yet. But Golden Monkey was one of the beers that really got me into beer.

I can only dream of Victory and other greats (Stone, Dogfish head, etc) being available in Louisiana...
It would cost a fortune to ship everything in I wanted to try.

Prima is a fantastic beer. Very very good pils. I mentioned it in another thread about bitters, their cask Uncle Teddy's is my regular beer when I go. Unfortunately I believe you can only get it there.

Had Wild Devil cask, hop devil and Hop wallop is AWSOME on cask. Great beers.

+1 - I lived in Amherst (buffalo) NY for a few years. I lived directly next to the amherst ale house, and victory hop devil was my favorite. Here in North Dakota, getting good beer is tough. STUPID CANOES on tap....leinengkugal is not good

Thus my homebrewing hobby was born....I like hoppy, malty, aggresive beers...I rarely brew anything under 1.060 OG and 40 IBU.....i figure if I am going to invest my time in the brew it had better be great.
