Sly Fox Brewery to be featured at January What’s for Dinner local food event
Camphill Village Kimberton Hills is pleased to announce it will be featuring Sly Fox Beer at our next What’s for Dinner fundraising event, set for January 31, 2015. We will be serving Helles Golden Lager and Phoenix Pale Ale.
Helles Golden Lager is a German style lager brewed with imported German Pils malt and Saaz and Hallertauer hops. Golden in color and light-bodied with a gentle, dry finish.
Phoenix Pale Ale is a bold American Pale Ale brewed with imported Pale and Crystal malts and hopped with Centennial and Cascade hops from the Pacific Northwest. Copper in color, medium-bodied and spicy.
Sly Fox Brewing Company is headquartered in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. The brewery opened in January 2012 and Sly Fox beers are currently available in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC.
The company was founded in December 1995 by the Giannopoulos family when Peter Giannopoulos opened the Sly Fox Brewhouse & Eatery in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. After brewmaster Brian O’Reilly arrived in the Spring of 2002, he developed an off-premise sales program to gain Sly Fox beers a place on the taps at some of Philadelphia’s best bars and taverns, greatly expanding the customer base.
When off-premise sales increased beyond the Phoenixville location’s ability to keep up, Sly Fox opened a 20-barrel production brewery and accompanying restaurant in nearby Royersford, in November 2004. John Giannopoulos joined the company at that point to manage the brewery side of the business. After seven years, demand once again made greater production capability a necessity and the restaurant was sold to former employees in 2011.
Sly Fox’s success has been due not only the award-winning quality of its beers but also to solid judgment and forward-looking business decisions. The company was an early adopter of the craft-beer-in-a-can revolution and became the first brewery in the Mid-Atlantic region to put in a canning line in 2006, at Royersford. The awarding of a Gold Medal to Sly Fox Pikeland Pilsner at the 2007 Great American Beer Festival in Denver marked the first time a GABF medal of any sort had been given to a canned craft beer.
Sly Fox is celebrating 20 years of business in 2015. The Tastin’ Room is open in Pottstown:
They offer free tours of the brewery on Saturdays and Sundays, 2pm and 4pm for both days. Reservations for tours can be made over the phone: (484) 300-4644.
