Wanna know why the Ravens won last Sunday?

My beer.

Normally, I toast the Ravens with a Baltimore brew -- usually something by Clipper City.

But last weekend, another brand caught my eye: Victory Lager (pictured). It's made by the Pennsylvania-based Victory Brewing Company, whose slogan is "Taste Victory."

What could be a better game time brew than Victory Lager? So I bought a six pack, and ended up drinking two or three bottles of the smooth and tasty suds Sunday afternoon.

Needless to say, the Ravens won. Barely. But still -- they won. They ... tasted victory. We both tasted victory.

You know what I call that? Karma, baby.

You're welcome, Brian Billick.

Little Havana has 2 Victory's on tap: Prima Pils and Hop Devil. Both are good! I first came across Victory 18 months ago when I visited a taphouse off of South St. in the city of Brotherly Love. One of my favorite micro's on the East Coast- Definitely better than the "other Micro" PA is popular for.

"What could be a better game time brew than Victory Lager?"
Miller Chill......

What few people realize is the "M" in JM Giordano stands for "Miller."
