Victory’s ‘Monkey Tales’ Contest


What’s Victory Brewing Company’s #1 selling brew?

(What? Monkey got your tongue? Don’t worry. I was stumped, too. Hint: You’re looking right at it.)

THE ANSWER: It’s Victory’s Golden Monkey Belgian Tripel!!!

To celebrate the iconic Golden Monkey, Victory Brewing has created a fun, SOCIAL MEDIA CONTEST focusing on the brew and the diehard fans who have supported, and love, the all-seeing, all-knowing, mystically spirited, metallic simian since its introduction in 1997. All you have to do is tell your ‘Monkey Tale’ through a photo or video for your chance to win.

Strong and sensual, the award winning golden Belgian-Style Tripel glows with goodness and demands respect. Imported malts and Belgian yeast are brewed with whole flower European hops to create a playfully delightful and profoundly satisfying ale abundant with exotic herbal and fruity notes. With an ABV of 9.5%, the Monkey needs to be fully respected for its magical, mystical wisdom.

“My Golden Monkey tale will be different from what others have experienced because I see the monkey through a slightly different lens,” said Founder and Brewmaster, Bill Covaleski. “However, we all have fallen in love with the spirit and the soul of this delicious and powerful ale because it resonates with so many craft beer fans. I can’t wait to see what this contest will bring.”
