Once you find Sly Fox's production brewery and taproom off the highway, down the railroad tracks, across the creek, and on the backside of a business park at the end of the local municipal airport in Pottstown, you'll find it difficult to leave. Quite a few good things about their hidden location. One is that after hours during the week and all weekend long, they have the business park pretty much to themselves (and neighboring Manatawny Still Works across the street).
Things have gone well for the nearly 25 year old Sly Fox and its befitting that they reside on Circle of Progress Drive in the business park. Another fortuitous piece of the puzzle is the adjacent grassy piece of land that hosts their oversized outdoor annual events -- Bock Festival/Goat Races; Taps, Tunes, & Trucks; Cyclocross; and Can Jam Festival.
Inside, there's excellent pizza and sandwiches to pair up with a brewery tour, a few beers from a wide-ranging lineup, and a relaxing visit. On a nice day, sitting outside and watching planes take off and land at the airport adds to the atmosphere. They always have a lot going on, a decent amount of it Irish- and German-inspired (like this featured Pils), and growth on the horizon with planned satellite operations on the drawing board for nearby Malvern, Wyomissing (in Berks County), and across state in Pittsburgh.

If you're just jumping in during the middle of this and want to know what this is all about, link back here to see the Flagship February overview as well as an ongoing list of all beers I'm featuring during the month of February.
Disclosure: For this project, I solely created the list of 28 beers featured here on The Brew Lounge. I was in contact with each brewery and neither required nor requested complimentary samples. I purchased today's Sly Fox beer at retail.
