A Mirvish Village institution, the Victory has a street-side patio – usually rammed – where you can catch a beer buzz. Or cozy up to the bar for a pint of stout in the winter (not like we're thinking about Polar Vortex 2.0 right now). It's a relaxed spot for the locally-inclined beer drinker; the Vic pours mighty drinkable brews from Beau's, Spearhead and Neustadt, with two turnover taps dedicated to experimental and small-batch brews from Great Lakes and other badasses of brew. Years operating Over 15 Specialty 15 local taps, plus casks Food Standard pub grub, with veggie options Patio 25 Hours Monday to Friday 3 pm to 2 am, Saturday and Sunday 10 am to 2 am.
