Victory does 22oz bottles of Prima Pils?

That would seem to be the case based upon this article in today’s New York Times in which Eric Asimov and his crew did one of their regular tastings and Prima Pils came out on top. Click on “Victory” in the Tasting Report box on the left hand side of the page and it indicates they were pouring from a 22oz bottle.

That packaging would be news to me, if accurate.

Prima got three-and-half  stars from the panel, nudging out Penn Brewing Kaiser Pils, poured from a 750ml bottle, which earned the same number. Other locals: Troegs Sunshine Pils earned three stars and was third in the judging, while Sly Fox Pikeland Pils and Stoudt’s Pils were given two-and-a-half stars and finished seventh and eighth respectively.

All the beers but the top two were from 12oz containers and I have to wonder if that made any difference., although there’s certainly no reason for arguing with any of the results. It just crossed my mind because the 220z bottle of Troegenator I had the other night was the best packaged experience I’ve ever had with that particular brew. And the 750s of Penn Kaiser I liberated from the Beer Yard several weeks ago were also especially tasty.

So, if Prima Pils really does come in a 22oz size, I needs to get me some to taste.
