Monkeys Will Cause Damage
Ben Erickson

 I fell in love with Victory's beers at the Market Cross Pub in Carlisle, PA while attending Dickinson College. After college I moved to Fort Collins, CO in 2001, and while the available beer selection was amazing, I really missed Victory beers. Every time I traveled back east I would carry a case of Victory beers in my backpack on the plane trip home. When my friends' band relocated from Carlisle to Fort Collins in 2003 they brought me out a case of Hop Devil and a case of Golden Monkey. Earlier that summer I had done a quick trip back east for the end of Phish summer tour. In between two shows in Camden, NJ we made a trip to Six Flags, and for some reason I held onto my ticket with the warning about the safari, "monkeys will cause damage". The Victory beers that were delivered to my housemate and I were the perfect beers to enjoy before we went out on the town. We flew through the case of Hop Devil, but the Golden Monkey went a little bit slower. We noticed if the night started out with too many Golden Monkeys we would be on a path to a crazy adventure, so we adopted the "monkeys will cause damage" slogan, and the ticket stub went on the fridge to remind us, "Seriously...Respect the Monkey". Now Victory's beers are available here in Colorado, so I can get my hands on them whenever I want, but when ever I see Golden Monkey, I automatically think of the summer of "monkeys will cause damage", I definitely respect the Golden Monkey.
