Founded by two dudes who went to elementary school together here in Pennsylvania, Victory is currently winning this whole brewing thing (its suds are available in 34 states!), and winning a spot on our list with an American IPA with bold spices and citrusy notes that should convert any IPA nonbeliever. It's best served chilled to bring out flavors of apricot, banana, florals, and pine.
The cranberry sour ale is released every year and has local beer lovers savoring every drop 'til it runs out. The cranberry is low key enough to nullify any dizzying sweetness, while traces of lavender and herbs give it a well-rounded, but complex taste.
