Sly Fox Brewhouse & Eatery opened in Phoenixville (Pikeland Village Square) in 1995, and expanded to a larger 2nd location in Royersford (312 Lewis Road) in 2004. The original Phoenixville location later moved across Route 113 into the new Maple Lawn Shopping Center, and still has a small brewing system. As of late 2011 the main brewery, bottling and canning lines, are still operating in Royersford, but the owners have already sold the location (now called Lucky Lab Tavern), and soon intend to relocate the brewery to a new location (rumored to be in Pottstown). Sly Fox's standard offering includes Blonde, Helles Golden Lager, "Phoenix" Pale Ale, bitter-hopped "Pikeland" Pils, aromatic-hopped "Route 113" IPA, crisp Royal Weisse, spicy "Saison Vos" Belgian Farmhouse Ale, tasty Dunkel Lager, and dark creamy O'Reilly's Stout. The Phoenixville brewpub is mid-sized with table dining, an 18-chair bar, and outdoor patio. Fermenting vessels are visible through windows behind the bar. I was very impressed at the great variety of their beers, and tasted 16 beers in their full sampler. In addition to the standard offering, their limited brews included ESB, Dunkel Weisse, a second Farmhouse Ale, two cask-conditioned ales (Bitter and Porter), and a truly delicious Coffee Porter.

Love Sly Fox beer. Some of my favorites. First Friday of the month they have Incubus Tripel on tap. Really great stuff (10.5%). Also love the standards, 113 IPA, Phoenix Pale Ale and Pikeland Pilsner. The standard brews are sold in cans too, which is cool. They always have a nice rotation of seasonals and special brews.

Atmosphere is nothing special, nice enough place. Gets crowded on weekend evenings sometimes. Service is usually good at the bar, don't usually sit at a table but it's been good there too. The food is hit or miss. Wings are good and bar food is OK but mostly everything else is below par. Visit for the beer though, some of the best.

I've been drinking Sly Fox in cans for a while and it was nice to get to their brewpub and have some of the beer on tap.

I had an Abbey Dubbel, which was very tasty, and an Irish Red which was very good for the style.

Food was okay, not quite as good as I'd want it to be for a place like this. The Crab Fries were quite tasty, but my sandwich (a pretzel melt) wasn't the best thing I've had. They do dollar tacos all Sunday long, but I don't think they're worth the dollar.

Lots of beers on tap, good selection to buy cans and bottles to go, as well.

Family friendly place to visit, too, if you're traveling or visiting with young ones. Our service left some to be desired as our waitress didn't know anything about the beer on tap, or anything about the menu, but she was new and it was a Sunday afternoon, which is probably a dead time for them.

Sly Fox is one of my favorite brew pubs. Their beers are really unique. They experiment a lot, but their experiments are based on really good flavor and ingredient combinations. They have a half dozen or so house beers, a few seasonals, and maybe a cask on tap. Their food is very pub oriented. Good prices and tasty! The movie "The Blob" was shot in Phoenixville and the town has a festival every year. Sly Fox brews an Imperial Red Ale called The Blob which is just amazing. If you get a chance to try this beer, don't miss it. Their German Pilsner won 1st at the GABF last year! South Eastern PA has some of the best German Style Pilsners you'll find anywhere... Victory Prima Pils, Sly Fox Pikeland Pils, Stoudts Pils, Iron Hill West Chester German Pilsner... All really good, and German Pilsner is not my favorite style! Anyway, I don't get to Sly Fox too often, but every time I get a chance, I still get excited to go!

Ok, I moved to the U.S ten years ago. I have travelled to many places far and wide here in the U.S and throughout the world.... but i can tell you without hesitation that the sly fox 113 IPA is the best beer in the world. Lots of hops, deep taste and fully rounded. This beer is not for the weak, it is 7.5 ABV. The pub produces many of its beers in cans, bottles and take out jars. The food is adequate, but why worry about food when the beer is this good! one of the few pubs with outside seating so we frequent this spot far too often!
