For beer lovers, nothing may taste sweeter than victory. Its brewmasters having trained in Germany, Victory Brewing Company makes European-style craft beers. The company's colorfully named brands -- among them HopDevil, Hop Wallop, Golden Monkey, St. Boisterous, and Old Horizontal -- are also sold in taverns and retail outlets in its home state, Pennsylvania, as well as in about a dozen other states. It also operates an onsite brewpub that serves up sandwiches, salads, pizza -- and Victory's beers. Boyhood friends Bill Covaleski and Ron Barchet founded the company in 1996.
