Culinary Concepts from Blackboard to Bottle & Tap
Victory Brewing Company announces the launch of its Blackboard Series. It’ll include four adventurous and deliciously distinctive beers brewed with fresh ingredients that are a creative craft riff on restaurant blackboard specials which entice patrons to try something new. The annual series includes a new creation every three months alternating between bottle and draft only releases.
“We developed the idea for this series while witnessing the popularity of the daily menu additions in our brewpubs. Using super fresh, seasonal ingredients as the driving force of our Blackboard Series we welcome January and it’s bounty of enticing grapefruits,” said Victory’s President and Brewmaster, Bill Covaleski. “The goal of the Blackboard Series is to be flexible, adaptable and diverse while maintaining our high standard for quality. Much like our talented chefs make menu changes, we followed suit to bring ‘specials’ to our fans from the blackboard to the bottle or tap.”
It’s described as “fresh, crisp and bracing, reminiscent of a ripe, ruby red grapefruit.” Now, you’ve got my attention! Lately, I’ve been drawn to IPAs with a twist and will be looking forward to trying this one from Victory Brewing.
Agave IPA is brewed with four variations of American hops (Citra, Simcoe, Cascade and Centennial) that juxtapose strong and bitter aromas against agave and grapefruit to create a light, citric bite. The sweet agave syrup helps to tame the grapefruit juice tartness.

As part of the series launch, all three Victory Brewpubs – Downingtown, Kennett Square and Parkesburg are fully ‘embracing the blackboard’ with culinary creations perfectly suited to, or using the ingredients found in, Agave IPA with Grapefruit to celebrate the launch of this series.
The second beer of the series is categorized as an American Wild Ale and will certainly excite the craft beer fans like my husband, Derek, who love that funky flavor that comes from brews using Brettanomyces.
Dry-Hopped Brett Pils is a new-mashup using Victory’s tried and true Prima Pils as the base. Sounds interesting. It’ll definitely be worth tracking this down on tap.
