Victory Brewing Company Releases Summer Love Ale

DOWNINGTOWN, PA — Beginning in early May, consumers won’t have to look far to “Find their Summer Love,” as Victory Brewing Company’s crowd-pleasing summer seasonal brew, Summer Love Ale, spreads from the City of Brotherly Love to more shelves across the country.

Originally commissioned in 2010 to capture the essence of Philadelphia, a city rich in history and flavor, Summer Love Ale has come to represent the nostalgia of summer in all 29 states and the District of Columbia that make up Victory’s national distribution footprint. Released nationally in bottles for the second year, beer aficionados should enjoy seeing this refreshing and flavorful golden ale in more locations, including better supermarkets, as the fan-favorite brand will see deeper distribution than ever before in 2013.

At 5.2% alcohol by volume, Summer Love Ale promises the sublime, earthy familiarity of noble European hops backed up by fresh, clean German malts, and a surprising burst of lemony refreshment from fistfuls of American whole flower hops at its finish.

Also returning in May of 2013 is the “Find Your Summer Love” sweepstakes.
