My wife and I had some time to kill before one of my band’s gigs in Royersford, so we decided to spend some quality time at the Sly Fox brewpub. I had been anxious to visit since I first tried their Rt. 113 IPA on tap at The Marysville Tavern a few weeks before, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity, since we would be in the area.

We arrived at a great time (about 3:30, between lunch and dinner), so it wasn’t very crowded. There were perhaps three other people at the spacious bar that seated perhaps twenty-five, and only one or two tables were occupied. We decided to sit at the bar near the bottle coolers. Overall, this Sly Fox location boasts a nice, comfortable pub seating area with painted red walls, rich woodwork, and a working fireplace. All in all, a very comfy setting.

My wife and I both opted for the sampler, which included five 5-oz. glasses of anything on tap for six bucks. I chose the following: Phoenix Pale Ale, Pikeland Pils, Route 113 IPA, Dunkel Lager, and Pughtown Porter. All of the ABVs were in the 5% range, with the exception of the IPA, which was 7%, according to the beer menu.

The Phoenix was an amber-colored, medium bodied pale ale with soft carbonation and a mild hop aroma and flavor. The Pikeland Pils was light yellow in appearance and had a crisp, hoppy bite with a medium finish. The IPA was orange/rust colored with a creamy head and bold hop flavor. Lots of fine lacing around the glass as I drank it. The Dunkel Lager and Porter were also very good. The Porter had a smooth texture and a smoky finish. I was thoroughly pleased with all of my selections. My wife got almost all different selections (save the Porter), including O’Reily’s Stout, Royal Weisse, Saison Vos and Rauchbier. She liked everything, which is pretty rare.

We only got a snack (the soft Pub Pretzels) since we were going to be having dinner at the gig. But they were very tasty and were served with honey mustard and cheese dipping sauces.

I ended our visit with a 20-oz. Black & Tan, comprised of their Stout and Pale Ale. It displayed a very small tan head and was a well-balanced blend of both aforementioned beers.

Overall, the service was great and the customers were pleasant. We had a nice twenty-minute conversation with another customer about various brewpubs, breweries, etc. For the road, we got a 22-oz. bomber of the IPA and also two bottle-conditioned selections: the Christmas Ale and the Raspberry Reserve. This was a very nice experience and I hope to be back to Sly Fox soon!
