Beer Review: Victory Jubilee

Jubilee from Victory Brewing Company is described as a Bière Brut when it comes to a beer style. If you are not familiar with that style then think of beer meets champagne, and this ale is the focus of my latest review here which you can see in my YouTube video at the end of this post.

Now I will tell you that I am not always the biggest champagne lover but the beer caught my eye and part of the fun of reviewing beers is trying ones that expand your horizons. This one did not fall short of that, and was able to bring something different with its effervescence and Belgium qualities. Check out my YouTube review to see my thoughts on it, and if you’ve had it then let me know what you thought as well.

Brewer Notes:


Join the Jubilee as we toast to 21 years of Victory! This lush and decadent Biére Brut has been fermented with sparkling wine yeast to marry lively effervescence with rich, fruit-forward flavors of Belgian-style ales. German Blanc hops impart aromas of pear, apple, and white grape while citrus and spice flavors culminate in a crisp, wine-like finish.
