New Specialty Beer on Tap: Victory Lager

As the last leaves fall from the trees and thoughts start turning toward winter, the craft-beer drinker may still be craving autumn’s Octoberfest-style lagers with an eye on winter’s richer ales. Time for our latest specialty beer on tap: Victory Lager.

It gets its name from the Victory malts used in the brewing process. Victory malt gives this beer its toasty, biscuit-like flavor with a low hop bitterness. It is a Vienna-style lager, characterized by baked-bread like aromas and a mild sweetness.

Pair this beer with any of our grilled menu items such as 5 Spice Ginger-Teriyaki Ribs or our famous One-Mile Farm Burgers, and let the rich, malty flavors of this crisp cold-weather lager shine through.
