WOW. This was certainly one of the highlights of our Mid-Atlantic Baseball & Beer Tour 2005. We had heard about the "IPA Project" that had been going here and in Royersford since 2004, and were anxious to try some of these single-hop IPA's.

As you enter the place, you notice a good sized bar ahead to your right with several tables in the bar area. There is a much larger eating area on your left and past the stairwell that separates the two areas. The place looked clean and friendly. The restrooms were also very clean. You could tell the owners really took care of this place.

To sample each beer on draft we began with two 5-beer samplers. Everything was delicious and the IPA was excellent. The food was very tasty, and all four of us were happy with what we ordered. A display of their t-shirts was suspended from the ceiling in the bar area, complete with prices.

I'll definitely make the trip west of Philly to visit Sly Fox when I'm in the area again.

My wife and I took the hour drive to Phoenixville yesterday for lunch.

The brewery is located in a strip mall, right off of Route 113. It's not the most scenic of locations, but it's functional enough. The interior is a pretty open and lets in a good amount of light. We sat at the bar, which is a light-colored wood and rather deep. Behind the bar, you have pretty good visibility of the brewing operation.

A major snowstorm was on the way, so at 1 PM on a Friday, the bar was pretty full of people getting growlers filled. There were a few tables having lunch, as well.

There were about 15 beers on-tap, in addition to 3 casks. I had a one-off festbier, as well as their Odyssey IPA and London Porter on cask. I have to say, I was very impressed by their cask conditioning.

Food was good. We had the pierogies (very good) and the French onion soup (excellent). I had the pretzel burger (solid, but overcooked) and my wife has the grilled cheese (very good). Prices are reasonable, totally in-line for solid bar food.
Our bartender was very attentive, without being overbearing.

In addition to growlers, Sly Fox has all of their canned and bottled beers available for takeout. I bought a mixed case of 12 Pikeland Pils and 12 Helles for a pretty reasonably $33.

It was a good time, with good beer and good food. I'd definitely visit again.

Functional space, though somewhat stoic, in a suburban strip mall in PA. It was November so the outdoor seating was closed, but that looked like a nice area for a brew. There were about 15 beers on tap, which you could create your own sampler. The variety was good, though I find the basic stuff (Phoenix Pale, Rte 113, etc) to be at the top of the list. Had a small dinner, good selection to b had, food was pretty good. Overall, worth stopping by and checking out, though not a destination location

I have visited this place a few times -once for the goat races which is an annual event that attracts many based on the German music food and beer theme. I find this place to be a cozy place and a good one to enjoy a draft -They have bottles available like their Saison vos which I shared. The service is decent and atmosphere is pleasant I would recommend stopping in if you havent checked them out -I personally like the saison but they also have a decent pilsner, pale and the MaiBock if on is great this time of year

Pretty average, though the food was better than average. It didn't help that the saison I tried was very overly floral.
