Exellent brewpub!

I drove here from New York in search of their excellent Rauchbier. I have tasted it during Extreme Beer Fest 2006, and it left enough of the impression to say one weekend, "Hey, I have nothing to do this weekend, and it's only 3 hours to PA, so why don't I check out Sly Fox?" I did just that - went to PA for the weekend with the goal of stopping by Sly Fox Brewing Co.

Phoenixville location is very spacious. Plenty of tables to the left of the entrance, some more tables on the right, and it appears that they have some seating on the second floor. Long bar is to the right. Brewing equipment and vessels are visible through huge glass windows behind the bar. Stuffed toy foxes are here and there, fox chase scenes on the wall - they really went with their name and theme (extra points in my book). Clean place. I was there between lunch and dinner, so the place had few people; however, whoever was there was cool and the atmosphere was relaxed. There were a few TVs above the bar showing various sports channels.

No complaints about the service. I sat at the bar, and the bartender was attentive and pleasant.

Food was excellent. I have ordered Rib Dinner and ribs were finger licking good. I actually contemplated for some time whether to get another dish - not because I didn't feel full, but because the food was good. I would describe their food menu as upscale pub menu, but you can take a look at it on their website.

Finally, last, but most definitely not least, beer. Of course, with my luck they ran out of Rauchbier morning the day of my visit. I had a pint of Cascade IPA from their IPA Project (10 single hop IPAs throughout the year), and a taste of Abbey Extra (all right), and a 10 oz. goblet of Abbey Dubbel (excellent!). I was thinking of picking up a growler of Abbey Dubbel, but picked up a bottle of Rt. 113 IPA and Saison Vos instead. Their beer menu had about 10-12 choices of various styles. Good selection - something for everyone.

This place is definitely worth a visit, and I plan to return next time I am in the area. One last note to help you find the place - Google Maps and Yahoo! Maps give wrong location of this brewpub (a little to the side of Rt. 113). The brewpub is right on Rt. 113 in Phoenixville. Just look for Pikeland Village Square.
