Victory Brewing celebrated 15 years of brewing on February 15, 2011. For the occasion, Victory has released “Headwaters Pale Ale”. The name Headwaters refers to the Downingtown, Pennsylvania’s most prized asset – Brandywine Creek. The water comes from a branch of the creek 14 miles away. Victory’s blog describes it the best:
Chief among those assets is the pure water we receive from the East Branch of the Brandywine Creek that begins its journey to us just under 14 miles from where we brew with it. We’ll be celebrating this water (insert your lite beer joke here) with our anniversary beer, Headwaters Pale Ale, due to be released February 15, 2011. Now, considering that beer is the product of four simple ingredients and the three other than water rely on water for their existence, we’ve had a fair amount of latitude in paying homage to water in our beer. So, we’ve played all of our cards deftly, bringing the hops, malt and yeast in harmony, with our great local water as the conductor in Headwaters Pale Ale.
