Well it was my b-day yesterday so my wife and I decided to make a trip. We have already tried the other Slyfox so why not this one.

Looks to be an old supermarket which was taken over by Slyfox the Limerick nuclear power plant looming large in the background. A nice little patio area but it is way to could for that. We were very impressed with the size of the place.As you walk through the doors A nice dining area to your immediate left and goes through to the back. The bar is straight ahead with a couple of private booth areas around the back part of the bar.

Service was very good. Looks like a few locals in there after work on a Friday for a few.Since we sat to have an early dinner we really didn't chat to the bartender to give us insight on slyfox news.

As there other place there selection is great. I had sampler of the oatmeal stout , ESB , Oddyessey , and three others that I have forgotten.

Food is fantastic some of the best pretzels I have ever had with that great slyfox mustard. Proportions of food are very impressive. I had a big plate of blackend chicken penne for 8.95 the lighter portion and it was very filling.

A fun place to visit but is a little out of the way for us. A great gift on my b-day though.

Sly Fox has two locations. The old brewery / restaurant in Phoenixville and the new production brewery and brew pub in Pottstown. Well TG got a living social deal where you get 2 shirts and 2 brewery tours at the Pottstown brewery. Unfortunately they don’t do tours on Fridays but we did get out T-shirts. The new place is real nice. We were going to eat lunch there but the food menu is limited (just pizza’s and some finger pub foods). When I say limited I don’t mean that as a bad thing. The pizza’s they had looked awesome and some of the other stuff looked good, we just wanted a full lunch menu and decided to eat at the restaurant in Phoenixville. The bar was long and there were about 9 wooden tables with benches inside as well as an outdoor patio area to hang out as well. Great looking place but the only problem is its in the back of an industrial park and unless you have the address and know what your looking for your probably not going to randomly stop by this place and just happen to come across it.

I took a break from the Reading WWII Weekend on Friday, 03JUN11 for lunch at the Royersford Sly Fox.

This pub is easily found once getting off the highway in Royersford, and is located at the right-hand end of a nondescript building in a small strip-mall. Upon entering, there's a hostess station to the left, beyond which is a dining room. Straight ahead is a small dining area/lounge, with the bar at the rear of the room, running right to left with a short "ell" back to the rear. The decor is an odd mix of garish, red walls with lots of old, polished dark-wood furniture, as found in many a London pub. Further back, beyond the left of the bar, is a display case with glassware and clothing, another dining room, and a game room with pool tables, pin-ball, etc. Decent rock music filled the air.

I parked at the bar and perused the bier menu, which had 12 different options to choose from. They had a varied assortment, from 2 different maibocks to an IPA, a rauchbier to a tripel, and so on. I tried the 2 maibocks, the rauch and the tripel. All were solid and tasty. For my meal I went with a Buffalo Chicken Sammich, which was quite satisfying and filling. My bartender did a solid, albeit unspectacular, job. Had hoped to snag a bier to go, but they were out of my intended choice, their DIPA. Still, it was well worth the side-trip from Reading, and I'd surely swing by again if possible. Prosit!!

My first impression of this place is not a great one. The building's exterior is nondescipt and unappealing and the decor inside is rather dated. The vibe feels more like a mid-'90's chain restaraunt than a brewpub. Where is all the brewing equipment? Somewhere in the back of the building I suppose. The beer, however, was a bright spot. Not a huge selection but quite a few belgians and germans on-tap. The food is standard pub fare and the prices are reasonable. Overall, this is a great place to stop in for a pint if your in the area but isn't really a destination spot.

Went here this past saturday with the lady and a group of friends. We took the brew tour and got lunch. It was pretty cool that they let you bring a beer with you on the tour as other places I've been to don't.

The atmosphere is a little old and plain for that of a resturant but they do have a great game room that I had to bump the score up for. The walls are a bland maroon color, not many pictures, the tables look like they have some years of wear and tear on them. The game room though was sweet. We played shuffelboard, air hockey, some offroad racing game, and of course BIG GAME HUNTER!! The service I had was interesting, I think every time I went up to the bar there was a different bar tender. The waitress was ok, she didn't seem to know much on the selection and I've never had Slyfox prior to this, but we had a large group and she did well.

The selection is obvious because you're in their brewery/resturant for cryin out loud, but their beer is good! I tried the Royal Weise, the Saison, and the Rt. 113 IPA. I also bought a 750 bottle of the Ichor and Incubus home to try. They do have a liquor license so you can get mixed drinks or shots if that pleases you.

The food was pretty good actually, nothing outstanding but everyone was pleased. I got a Reuben that was delicious, and my girl got a ham pretzel melt that I helped her finish that was damn tasty also. All in all food and beer was priced very reasonable, nothing out of the ordinary.
