Wound down a very long day brewpubbin' here. Standing alone in a shopping center, it's an odd little out-of-place house or something. On entering, there's a dining room to the left, more seating to the right around the bar area and there's a staircase front row center that goes upstairs to an additional dining room. Nice, homey and comfortable as brewpubs go, but it seems quite compact all around. Squoze in at the bar to find a dozen plus taps and drank an IPA, which was nicely hoppy, but the real wonder here was the Black Raspberry Wheat. It was like the Lindeman's Cassis with an alcohol punch in the face. Full and crazy fruity and most unusual. Having done subsequent visits, I've never had a bad beer here.
The bar is "Z" shaped and you can see the brewing equipment through the glass walls behind the bar area. Not a lot of room back there but they get it done some how. Additional seating outside does an "L" around the corner. Perfectly apt for a large crowd of well behaved BA's.

Every time that we pull into the Pikeland Shopping Center, I ready myself for a visit to a hunting lodge. From the moment that I step through the door(s), I feel as though I am up in the hills of North Central PA. The lamps mounted on the walls and hanging from the overhead are all reminiscent of a bygone era. The place is done in various tones of green (forest, flat paste, and dark), as well as darkly-stained wood, especially the exposed beams in the overhead. The motif of the fox and the hunt abounds here, with stuffed, mounted foxes 8=(; brass horns; art prints and the ubiquitous logo in abundance.

The bar is towards the rear of the building and is a serpentine-shaped affair, running about half of the width of the place. The bar area, with requisite tables and chairs, is to the right of the entranceway, with the brewhouse visible behind the bar.

Off to the left of the maitre d' is the restaurant area and I can only encourage you to watch for Pete G.'s (in)famous Greek Bock and Brats, an unusual example of fusion cuisine, in which feta cheese is introduced to standard German fare.

There is a beautifully appointed banquet facility on the second floor, up a stairwell that would seem at home in anyone's house. An ongoing series of beer dinners has recently been announced, to be held in said banquet room, so stay tuned.

An aside for ownership: I miss the old sly fox logo. The current New Age logo is to the species vulpus what the Pens' logo from 1993 to 1998 is to real penguins - a pale analogy.

I would be entirely remiss if I did not mention ownership, management and production here. I have a solid relationship with Pete Giannopolous and his wife, Mary, dating back to a conversation between he and I in early 1999 during a beer fest. I met Mary at the Ortlieb's fest a month or two later and again at the annual State College Brewer's Expo and it has become an annual ritual to meet first at Zeno's after the fest and then to repair to the Corner Room, since we all stay at the Hotel State College. I wrote a Beer Pest column that featured Pete, which he still raves about. Their general manager, Corey, is fantastic behind the bar and always greets me enthusiastically. I was tight with Bill Moore when he was the brewer here and having Brian O'Reilly in place only cements my standing. Kudos to one and all!

Update (transcribed from notes dtd F, 10 Dec 2010): At last, the new and improved Fox! Located behind Citizens Bank in the Maple Lawn Shopping Center, it had a wide windowfront with an outdoor patio. A concave vestibule with Entry (right) and Exit (left) glass doors led to the m.d.s. station slightly to the right with the restaurant area with its standard tables and chairs further right.

I was there for the occasion of their 15th Anniversary celebration, however, so I turned left and headed to a table along the window so that I could eat dinner with my uncle. Three standard tables and chairs ran along the window, followed by a few high tables and chairs, and then the bar began. It was an elongated "U-shape with several hand pumps and numerous taps built into it. A pair of flat-screen monitors overhung the back bar as well as some windows overlooking four SVs.

Food: A massive portion called Chicken Oscar involving cheese, spinach, crab and chicken.

Beer: Two flights - the Hoppy and the Anniversary.

The 3rd stop on an extremely fun and memorable Saturday Beer Tour during a recent trip to NYC. By now we had imbibed at McKenzie’s and Victory, two establishments of serious stature, so I was intrigued to see what the Sly Fox had to offer. At this point Rotsaruch had joined us and traveled from Victory in what was now a three Beermobile convoy.

I have to say that from the outside the Sly Fox immediately drew me, by far the most picturesque of the three establishments we had visited. Whilst it is located in a Strip Mall, it stands out like a sore thumb, almost Little House on the Prairie like. An immaculately white painted exterior is punctuated with dark green painted windows and the whole building looks and feels like you are in the wilds. Indeed, once inside, I felt like I should have brought my Shot-Gun, Duck Whistle and Redneck “I love my Sister” T-Shirt with me; for the whole theme, intended or otherwise, is of a Hunting Lodge.

The entrance is centrally located, and our posse of Davo, FeloniousPhil, Slander, djgonzalez, RokotGirl, non-BA “Mike a.k.a. the Young Michael Jackson” and Rotsaruch entered intent on more beer to slake our dehydration on what turned out to be a very hot afternoon by now.

To our left, a large opened out restaurant type area was full and buzzing with the noise of people eating and chatting, immediately in front of us the bar fronted the large but cramped looking stainless tanks in the Brewery. I think it was Davo who decided that on such a nice day we should sit outside, I love drinking al fresco, so we all opted for the exterior tables.

I just wanted to sample the brews and the two I bought and many others I sampled thanks to the assembled throng all proved to be brews well worthy of the trek. The Scotch and Wit were memorable. Food looked to “Brew Pub-ish”, a decent selection but nothing to write home about. Service was polite and unrushed but prompt, though the waitress had to out up with my wise-ass cracks and deserved a tip for that alone. However, the real reason to come here is simply for the excellent quality and range of styles that the Sly Fox manages to pump out.

The outside drinking area was nice but sort of strange; we were wedged between the side of the Sly Fox and 4’ white brick wall banking with a topping hedge and the Car Lot in front of us. It was like we should all be hidden from the general view of the public for soem reason. Our tables had dark green sun umbrella’s which were great, but the wind felt like it whistled through here making a few of us feel a little chilled. I think it would be better if they had Tables at the front as well, but maybe some f**ked up US law prevents that, especially with this being a Shopping Mall area. Even so, tucked away in the outside corner, we created our own entertainment thanks to Rotsaruch and the “Guess the Country I created by spilling beer on my shirt competition”. Oh how we laughed. I still think that I won by correctly guessing Argentina, but he tells me I wrong and it was Peru or something.

Another High (erm, maybe I mean Low) Five to Davo for providing the transport & driving me and a few others here. Without the Evil ones help I would never have been able to get to the 3rd of Penn. States beer Mecca’s. Cheers Mate!

I think the quality of the beers far outshine the general establishment, and maybe its food, but a trip here for the purpose of sampling the excellent beers is highly welcome and seriously recommended. I so wish I had bought (brought?!) a Growler here, you may want to think about that if you are coming for the first time in the Car, the brews are all well worthy of a trip home!!

Last Visit: Saturday 29th May, 2004.

The Sly Fox 's location in Phoenixville fills a gap in the PA brewpub map very nicely and creates a stretch that runs from McKenzie's to Victory to the Sly Fox and on up to Ortlieb's Bar and Grill at Sunnybrook in Pottstown. They've always taken the beer seriously, and even had the grandfather of PA craftbrewing - Bill Moore - behind the wheel for a while (although he's now up the road at Sunnybrook). Brian O' Reilly, has held the reigns for some time now and has been doing an incredible job. I'm extremely fond of the Amber Fox IPA, but you can't go wrong with any of Brian's beers. He makes a brilliant pilsner, and I always take home a growler of something! The bar is fairly long (although a little high), and the restaurant has a homey feel. It's got some rough edges which, in my opinion, make it a little more comfortable. The bathrooms are always clean, and the relatively new outdoor seating is exceptionally nice during pleasant weather! The service has always been very good, which I can't normally say. The menu covers all the basics, and the food is pretty darn good. I love the smoked mussels, and the Mexican pizza makes a great, cheap snack! It's kid friendly as well, and my daughter enjoys most of the items on their "pup" menu. And that's what I expect from a brewpub - brewpub food! No frog's legs here! Just good food, great beer, and a comfortable atmosphere! A well-run family restaurant with great beers and local wines... one of my favorites!

A short 10-15 minute trip from the King of Prussia Mall and Sly Fox is located in a small shopping area called Pikeland Village Square. The bar is nice and roomy as there are about 20 stools and 4 high tops. Plenty of regular table for dining. The atmosphere would have scored higher if it wasn't for the fact everything is green in color. Outside patio for dining too. Large glass panels lets you look into the fermenter room from the bar.

The food was good as I had a nice fish and chips dish. Other food looked similiarly appetizing. There are about 10 beers on tap, covering most styles which gave me a nice choice - stout, porter, IPA, pale ale, helles, maibock, scotch ale, weisse, etc. The few beers I sampled were all great. The bartender on duty knew his stuff and was very friendly. This is a must trip if you are anywhere near this area of the state. It is worth the trip.

Stopped by here the other day, on my way to an Oktoberfest event.

The brewpub has the appearance of a large size home, that has now been converted into a brewpub. The place has high ceilings, which tends to give it an airy atmosphere. Not a lot of decoration and the furnishing seem a bit stark, but the vibe here is comfortable enough. Naturally, the beers available are all made by Sly Fox, and on this day I think they had around 10 or 12 beers on tap. I believe they also have 6 or 8 of their seasonals and limited release beers in bottle for either take out or consumption on the premises (they have an in house price and a take out price for their beers). Service was quick and efficient, and the bartender was pleasant and friendly. Only had a couple of beers here, but both were fresh and enjoyable.

Another solid place to get good beer in SEPA. What a surprise. :-)

A brewpub with great beer and service.

The place has a nicer vibe since they banned smoking. The bar has about 25 stools and a few high tops with brew tanks visible through the glass behind the bar. The dining room does not have much charm to my eye.

Beer is the highlight here. Always 10-12 on tap, almost all of which are worth a try. House beers are quite good, seasonals range from good to outstanding. You never have to settle.

Service is always pleasant and friendly.

Food is pretty good pub fare. I rarely order wings but the jamaican jerk wings here are excellent.

Stopped in for a couple of samples on the way to Capone's.

This was stop #266 on my quest to visit every quality brewery/brewpub in North America...and beyond.

Suburban Philly in a upscale area. Interior is large with lots of open area. Lengthy bar that winds around the brewing equipment that is visible through windows. Very high ceilings.

I build a 4 oz sampler of Abbey Extra, Route 113 IPA, Panacea Barleywine, Pughtown Porter, and O'Reily's Stout.

The beers were all good, nothing exceptional.

Lots of younger local's hanging at the bar enjoying themselves. Also seems like a family-friendly in the restaurant area.

A couple of people working behind the bar provided excellent service.

Sly Fox Brewhouse & Eatery is a decent place with all you'd expect from Sly Fox brews. Set in an otherwise normal-looking shopping plaza, the atmosphere was a bit generic, with basic decor, and lacking the dim gloominess that gives good bars character. The beer selection was very good, with about 8 or so Sly Fox brews on tap, and additionally a few bottles and rare vintages are available for a price. Growler fills are also available. Food was very good, and the service was good as well. The bar is pretty intimate, so the bartenders are pretty attentive.

2008 Bock Fest and Goat Races.

Atmosphere: The restaurant, at least the first floor, has dining to the left of the entrance and the bar to the right. The atmosphere is nothing exciting, run of the mill brewpub.

Quality: Service, food and drink were all good. The bathroom wasn't in the best shape but there were lots of people coming in and out.

Service: The waitstaff was very friendly and attentive, bring water, apps, beer and food in a very timely manner.

Selection: Today is Bock Fest, so the beer list is limited (if that is the right word) to German offerings: bocks (helles, doppel and mai), lagers (helles and dunkel), eisbocks, rauchbier and weisse. An awe-inspiring list that was pretty damn good. We ended up getting through the rauchbier, both eisbocks and the helles bock.

Food: Food is run of the mill pub grub. The pretzels were quite good and I enjoyed the pretzel melt sandwich. They have a kids menu as well, which is a plus.

Sly Fox is a nice brewpub in the philly burb of Phoenixville. The atmosphere is not the best, as this place is located in a small strip-mall in the middle of nowhere. The inside has a very "new" feel to it, almost like it used to be a bank or something, but the hunting motif is kind of cool and reminiscent of the Arrow and Loon in Ottawa, ON. Erica did not like the stuffed fox though. Anyway, the selection of brews was near perfect as their were 10 house brews on tap during our visist, and for $6 you can get a sampler (4 or 5oz glasses) of 5 of their creations. So between Erica and myself we got to sample all 10 of the house brews for only $12. Service was very fast, and very friendly. Good stuff. And, the food was quite nice. $8 for a BIG plate of nachos and extra sour cream for free :-) Better than the $14 nachos at Iron Hill anyday! A great place to come. Perhaps not the best atmosphere, or food *selection* for vegetarians, but come here for some of the best beers in the states, fast, friendly service, and a high standard of beer quality!

Went here with a few friends for lunch and some beers. It's kind of plain looking family style restaurant/brewpub with a dull bare decor but the brewing tanks are visible behind the bar which is a plus. Lots of seating at the bar and plenty of tables for dining.

The food and service were decent but nothing out of the ordinary. They have standard pub food, burgers, apps, sandwiches, etc. Our server was friendly and knew waht beers were on tap but not a lot about them.

They have a pretty good selection with a wide range of styles, many if which I haven't seen outside of the brewpub. I didn't see any guest taps but they had their 750ml corked and caged bottles for sale and a few different t shirts.

Overall this place isn't spectacular but Sly Fox makes great beer so it's definitely worth a visit.

If ya want to check out SLY FOX, go for the Goat Race or another of the inventive events that they have or just go anytime and enjoy. SLY FOX is a neat & clean brew pub, located in a shopping center, but in a way that it doesn't matter at all. This has a "welcome home" feel. It passes the "Mom could enjoy a beer here" test. Well kept atmosphere. The day that I stopped in, it rained. A gal wiped up rain water from the floor that I tracked in the minute I hit inside.

There seems to be a solid nine to twelve different style selection on tap. Bock, Weisse, IPA, Double-Bock, Porter, Stoudt, the list goes on...BA brownie points for selection. Only offering lacking was my fave Barley-Wine: Thus the 4.5/5 The brewskies are quite tasty all around. A gal next to me declared that she likes "BUD flavored beers" and was able to flip in appreciation for a Helles. That is a good wide range. Kudos to Brian O'Reilly.

The folks behind the bar are beer-pros. They know the stuff!!!

Tried a German pork and Spazel dish. Awesome! This is a 100% stop-in for the BA fan. I only wish it were closer. Took home a SLY FOX growler of Styrian IPA. It was delectable.

Beer is good. Happy local, brewpub beering!

One of the nicest surprises on Pennsylvania: there's something to be said for a suburban place for which you have no lofty expectations. In a parking lot shared with other fairly-new construction establishments, but not part of a mall, Sly Fox has succeeded in making the interior of their building feel woodsy, homey and bright. Better yet, it feels like a brewpub, not a patched together restaurant.

Terrific selection through a full range of abv's, bitternesses and colors. Saison! Grassy, flowery saison in the middle of winter in suburban PA. Who woulda thunk it? A good malty scottish. A really non-subtle, hoppy pale. And better-than-average bar food. Terrific nachos. A dedicated, efficient server completes one of the all high notes, no low notes brewpub experiences in the region.

The Sly Fox brewpub is a pretty decent hang despite the somewhat generic sports bar kind of feel it has. I would think this is actually a pretty cool place to watch the game if you're a craft beer fan. There's a relaxed vibe in the room and while it may not be beer geek territory it certainly is beer fan territory.

The bartenders are friendly and well informed about what they're serving. There's a lot of Sly Fox beers on tap at any one time; I believe there was at least 12 during my visit, including at least one each on cask and nitro tap. The quality of the brews ranged from very good to below average, with most being pretty tasty and drinkable. The focus is mainly on traditional German and Belgian styles and not anything too over the top or experimental.

The clientele seemed to be a nice mix of middle aged guys at the bar relaxing after work; many came in with growlers and engaged in beer talk; some families eating standard looking pub grub; and some younger folks hanging out on the periphery. This is not what you'd call a hip or trendy establishment; its very suburban and a little corporate in feel.

Kudos for make your own flights and for bartender's throwing around samples of everything quite freely!

Visited the brewpub on a Wednesday afternoon at 4:45PM. The dining room was almost empty at the time. The waitress arrived in a timely manner with our menus and took our drink order. The drinks were served in an appropriate time frame and our food order was taken. The food arrived in an acceptable time frame and was served at the proper temperature. All of the meals we ordered were excellent, as were the beers. The waitress was attentive and was knowlegeable about the beers available for take-out. No one had any complaints about the food or service. If this brewpub was closer to my home I'm sure it would be a regular stop.

When I first walked into the brewpub, before my eyes could focus and figure out the layout of the building, my ears picked up Pink Floyd’s “Time” playing in the background, so I guess you could say I fell for Sly Fox the moment I walked through the door.

After I got my bearings, I noticed we were in what seemed to be an old hunting lodge with a steep pointed roof that had a few sky lights cut into it. The left side of the building had a loft built into it, whose stairs invitingly point towards the front door. Off to the right was a beautiful wooden bar that ran along the back wall, wrapping around the protruding glassed off room that proudly displayed Sly Fox’s brewing tanks. On the front side of the building were a few booths and free standing taller tables. I was immediately drawn to this side of the building, but our hostess guided us towards the left under the loft. This side had a quaint family dining feel to it. The over all décor consisted of lighter greens and darker reds with plenty of visible hard wood. Appropriately enough, the theme was the British fox chase, with stuffed (plush and mounted) foxes, paintings and photographs of foxes, etc. I knew they were serious about this when I noticed a fox chase depiction as a wall paper border around the walls in the latrine. The lighting consisted of lamps along the walls and a few chandeliers, all of which were made of green glass and brass. Over all, I got an inviting warm feeling from this place.

The food here was exceptionally good. Each of our four member party was surprised by the quality of the food. We ordered sandwiches and the Greek chicken wrap, buffalo chicken sandwich, gyro and tuna steak sandwich are all wonderful. There’s also a menu for entrées, which are a little more expensive and a little more elaborate. I appreciate the range of prices so that anyone can afford a meal here.

The service was a bit crummy. Our server managed to screw up the first drink order and when we tried to order a t-shirt when we left, he had no clue as to what the procedure was. Granted he didn’t spill boiling soup on anyone, but his obvious novice status was the only damper on the evening. On to the beer!

I was very impressed with the beers here. Between the four of us, we tried everything they had to offer. I was exceptionally impressed with the variety of different sizes of glasses available for each beer. I took the smallest size so I could sample as many as possible in a reasonably timed visit and rather enjoyed the 10 and 12 ounce glasses. The barley wine I had even came in a stout goblet that I enjoyed drinking out of. The highlights of the night came from the rauchbier and the dubble. I thought that these were exemplary offerings for their styles. My girlfriend, who was with, used to live in Bamberg, and she too like the rauch, so that’s got to count for something. The dubble was dark and sweet with a nice Belgian spice to it that was wonderfully drinkable.

I must say that I was greatly impressed with Sly Fox. The food, as my brother says, is “destination dining” as opposed to some food you eat just because there is good beer around and you happen to be hungry. I’d come back here again even in they didn’t have the beer! Fortunately, the beer’s here to stay and it’s delicious across the board. Not a looser in the bunch. I’m currently contemplating when’s the next time I can reasonably make it back for another dinner. If you haven’t made it to Sly Fox, you’re really missing out.

-Edit- I've been back several times and the service was way better. Can't let one crummy night ruin things.

As mentioned by other reviewers, the decor isn't spectacular, but the layout is simple and tidy. There's a large board in the dining room outlining current beers and food specials. The bar area is quite large and has more of a sports/hunting theme to it and the brewing equipment is in plain sight behind the bar. A few TVs are suspended throughout, mostly showing live sports. The atmosphere is very family friendly - in fact, most of the tables in the dining room had at least one child in attendance. There was a good selection of beer during my visit, with a nice combination of lagers, ales, a weisse, a belgian-inspired ale, and a couple of Irish selections meant for St. Patty's day. The IPA was exceptional and the helles and pils were both very well done. The Irish stout was a great experience as well. There really wasn't a weak beer in their lineup during my visit. A sample platter of 5 beers for $6 was available, as were growlers and cans of selected beers (I picked up a six of their pale ale). Kegs of various sizes are also available. The food was above average and appropriate for a pub atmosphere - no complaints here.

But even with solid beer and food, it was the service that really stood out. So I was in town on business and didn't have a car. So I took a taxi to the brewpub and let my server know that I'd need another one once I was finished. Seemed simple enough until several taxi companies decided they didn't want to pick me up. They kept calling around until they found someone, and in the meantime the manager gave me a pint to pass the time, even though it was obviously not their fault.

If you're in the area, I highly recommend stopping by.

This was my second stop on a beer trip of SE PA. We rolled in around 4:30 on a Friday afternoon and grabbed seats at the bar.
The bar is a long S shape and has about 25 stools in all. Several TVs on the walls, booths and tables are spread around as well. Also available are tables outside the pub. The list of beers on tap is written on a dry erase board and is located in several spots around the bar. Fermenters are in plain view behind the bar. OUr bartender was very knowledgeable about the beers and how they were made. She was able to answer all of my questions and was very friendly too.
I ordered a black raspberry wheat to start off and also tried the peerless pale ale. I will enter reviews shortly. Also had an appetizer sampler. Wasnt impressed with this aspect. The chicken terriyaki strips were just chicken tenders with terriyaki dipping sauce. Wings were just casually hit with sauce and were not completely covered. Oh well. The beers were tasty and they fill growlers for $8-$20 depending on the beer you choose.
Overall a nice spot that I would go to again. It got a little crowded but was a good time.

Our first stop on the 5th annual Philly BA gathering. Sly Fox was a last minute addition to our tour due to some uncontrollable circumstances. Let me say that they really pulled it out for us with such short notice. Thanks, Sly Fox! They had a small assortment of complimentary appetizers for us to enjoy which were all very tasty. There was about 12 or so beers on-tap including the Dude de Garde brewed by the Dude, himself, Scott Morrison. They also had their bottled offerings such as Ichor, Odyssey, and Raspberry Reserve available. I liked the fact that you could get a sampler of 5 glasses of any of the beers they had on-tap. I know some places won't let you get the higher ABV or limited release beers in the samplers. The dining area was separated from the bar area by the huge staircase in the middle right in front of the door. There is also some seating upstairs. Very attentive and fast service. Good beer, good company, good time.
