We are privileged this year to have as our speaker one of America’s premier entrepreneurs, local business man and brewmaster, Bill Coveleski, Co-founder and President of Victory Brewing which has multiple locations in Chester County. Bill’s story is an example of how ingenuity, determination, and having a vision of what it takes can build a great company. Bill met his future business partner on a school bus in 1973 when they both were fifth graders in the Methacton School District. He earned a degree from Temple University’s Tyler School of Art. Initially he worked as an art director, before securing a brewing apprenticeship under German-trained Dutch brewmaster Theo deGroen. In 1993, Bill earned a degree from the Doemans Institute in Munich, Germany, having completed its International Course in Brewing Studies. Bill and partner Ron Barchet opened the doors of Victory Brewing Company in February of 1996, in a former Pepperidge Farm factory. Victory has won numerous awards, including “World’s Best Pilsner” by the New York Times culinary staff for their Prima Pils. Victory recently opened a brewery in Parkesburg, as well as another brewpub in Kennett Square, Pa.
