Victory Hop Wallop was put on hiatus back in 2013 in order to bring Dirtwolf IPA into the spotlight. For quite a few people, Hop Wallop was king. Over the next three months, Victory will bring back a couple of throwbacks from the retired lineup.
Victory Hop Wallop, an imperial IPA,in on tap now through November.
Additionally, Victory Yakima Valley hits taps in December, followed by Victory Ten Years Alt in January. Ten Years Alt marked a decade milestone for the Pennsylvania brewery, dopplesticke style beer.
“Introducing new brands is very exciting to us and we love the artistic process which is one of the greatest joys of my job,” said Victory’s President and Brewmaster, Bill Covaleski. “On the flip side, the least favorite part of my job is choosing which established brand will have to pass the baton to make room for the new, young gun. I hope our fans will be as delighted as I am to see some of their cherished brands make a comeback and take a walk down memory lane through drinking some really great craft beer.”
Each of the brands limited engagements will be draft only.

Burial Bolo Coconut Brown cans have returned to the brewery’s tap room as of today, November 9th. The Asheville, North Carolina’s brown ale breed with coconut has been a much sought after release this past summer.
Instead of the popular porter or stout choice as a style when brewing with coconut, Burial Bolo Coconut Brown‘s base is (as redundant as this writing is sounding), a brown ale.
The cleaver’s blade is strong enough and sharp enough to crack the toughest of coconuts. Easy drinking without lacking flavor, the addition of coconut is the perfect compliment to the subtle sweetness and nutty undertones present from the specialty malts.
Burial Bolo Coconut Brown is a 16 ounce can offering. On sale in the tap room today, with limited North Carolina distribution coming this week.
5.6% ABV, 30 IBUs
