Victory: Something old and something new...

Victory really knows how to take over the taps at a bar near you.  One of my local faves is the Pour House in Haddon Township, NJ.  Victory brought a load of cool stuff including Braumeister Pils, and Smokin' Oats Porter, but I really went for some vintage 2009 Old Horizontal Barleywine.  I was tempted into grabbing a Ranch S Double IPA as well, and was pleasantly surprised by its dual nature: malty and hoppy at the same time.  The aroma of Ranch S is worth investigating all by itself, with a funky, earthy, hoppy goodness that isn't too far off sticking your face into a pile of hops and inhaling deeply.  Put some groovy beers together with an old friend who's about as big a beer geek as you are, and it makes for a pleasant evening of catching up on old times as well as discussing what's new...

So thanks for hanging out with my friend Jesse and me.  We had a wonderful time chillin' with some Victory brews, old and new.  Cheers!
