Victory Brewing Company, situated right outside of Philadelphia in Downingtown, PA was the locale for the [much anticipated] Philly Beer meet-up. Involving not only the Twitter #PhillyBeer family, but also a few guests from the East Coast. Amie (@AmieDM17) from Florida was in the area, as well as Lee (@Hoptopia) and Stevie (@BasicallyRed) from NYC.
From my perspective, it was great to finally meet most of the #PhillyBeer group for the first time as well as the three others from out of state. I’m going to fill this article with some photos from the event, courtesy of Stephen, and names/Twitter handles for everyone that showed up. So, first up is the #PhillyBeer group that showed up:

And of course we all showed up from Passion Beer: Shane (@kabaa), Mike (@crashmaster007) and Nick (@typhoon19468). Visiting from Florida was Amie and enduring a painful 5.5 hour drive from NYC was Lee and Stevie. All three of which we were happy to have join us all! There’s really not much more to say in words; it was an amazing time enjoying some craft beer with some craft beer enthusiasts.
Before we get to the pictures, here is a pretty cool video shot by Mike using the Lazy Susan from the Brewer’s table we were sitting at. Take a look. As for the rest, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!
The full set from Stephen can be found at his Picasa gallery. Once again, thanks to everyone who came out, and it was nice to finally meet everyone! We must do this again.
