OVERVIEW

What is IPA? India Pale Ale, in its multiple variations, is one of the most popular beer styles among craft beer drinkers. It’s a brew that has evolved over time since modern pale ale originated in England in the 1600s, though some form of the drink quite likely dates back to the ancient Sumerians.

Burton, on England’s River Trent, is most often considered the birthplace of English Pale Ale – its naturally hard water, high in mineral content, contributed to the beer’s pronounced clarity and bitter character, which later became very popular – yet pale ale wasn’t brewed there until the early 1700s.

It was farther north, in Derbyshire, England, where the coal byproduct coke was first used to make brewing malt in the 1640s. Coke is a relatively smokeless heat source that, unlike wood and other fuels, dries malts without adding color and smoky character to beer. Other towns followed Derby and began brewing pale ales from coke-dried malt.

Bill Covaleski and Ron Barchet met each other as they boarded a bus on their first day of school as fifth graders in 1973, and became fast friends. After college, Covaleski became an accomplished homebrewer, and, with a homebrewing Christmas gift to Barchet, turned his friend on to the practice as well. That was all it took for Barchet, who left his job as a financial analyst to apprentice at the Baltimore Brewing Company (BBC). Within a year he was studying at the Technical University of Munich at Weihenstaphan. Covaleski soon followed, first to BBC, then to Germany’s Doemens Institute. The two looked toward their Pennsylvania roots to establish their own brewery. On Feb. 15, 1996, they opened Victory Brewing Co. in an old Pepperidge Farm factory in Downingtown, Pa., with a 142-seat restaurant, 70-foot-long bar and full-scale brewery.


Today, Victory brews about a dozen year-round beers, including their highly rated, award-winning HopDevil Ale (American IPA) and Hop Wallop (Double/Imperial IPA). Hop Wallop, at 9.5 percent ABV, does indeed pack a wallop of hop character, thanks to the brewers’ painstaking selection of the best hops from the annual harvest. Both Victory IPAs represent the top echelon of the American IPA genre. Other Victory selections include Victory Lager (Munich Helles Lager), Prima Pils (German Pilsner), Golden Monkey (Belgian-style Tripel), Headwaters Pale Ale, Storm King Stout, Donnybrook Stout and V-12 (Belgian-style Quadrupel). Their seasonal beers round out a top-notch list of selections, and the list continues to grow.


Since opening in 1996, Victory has increased its restaurant size, expanded its original brewery and built a second brewery in Parkesburg, Pa., with the goal of increasing overall production to some 500,000 barrels of beer annually. A second Victory brewpub operates in Kennett Square, Pa.
