Victory Brewing river clean-up cancelled

Participants at last year's event made the Brandywine cleaner during a day of paddling and fun.

Victory Brewing Company’s celebration and fundraiser, “Victory for the Headwaters,” scheduled for Sept. 12, has been cancelled due to low water levels in the Brandywine River.

The lack of rain, combined with soaring temperatures, has made portions of the river impassable by canoe, impeding the cleanup efforts.

The Brandywine River cleanup will take place in the spring as part of a local celebration.

Victory’s 5K, “Run for the Headwaters” on Sept. 20 at the Downingtown Brewpub (420 Acorn Lane, Downingtown) is proceeding as scheduled.
