Sly Fox holds annual Bock Festival this Sunday

Sly Fox Brewhouse & Eatery's Sixth Annual Bock Festival will be taking place on Sunday, May 6th. The event, which drew over 1800 people last year, begins at 11am and features "...a traditional German menu featuring Bavarian Beef cooked in beer, Wienerschnitzel, Bratwurst, Potato Goulash, and Black Forest Cake" as well as "four of [Sly Fox's] German-style bock beers."

In addition to the food and beer, the event features the now famous Goat Race.

To make the festival as successful as in years past, goats are needed to participate in the popular goat races, held in the parking lot adjacent to the brewhouse. Reid said that quite a few goats have already been signed up to participate in the races this weekend.


Registration of goats will begin at 12:30 p.m., and the goat races are scheduled at 2 p.m.


Owners run with the leashed animals, but may not lead or pull them toward the finish line. They can, however, motivate them with food or other inducements.
The victorious goat earns the reward of having the pub's newly brewed 2007 Maibock named in its honor, and the beer is tapped for the first time after the race.
The winning owner receives a $75 Sly Fox gift card, which is good at either Sly Fox Brewhouse & Eatery in East Pikeland Village or the new Sly Fox Brewery & Restaurant at 312 N. Lewis Road, Royersford. The goat will earn a gold medal to wear proudly afterwards.


"This race is meant to respect that history and have some fun with it," O'Reilly said, "Of course, you take your chances when you commit to naming your beer after somebody else's goat. We've had Maiboks named George, Clover, Ernie, Nelly, Weird Beard, Savannah and Han so far, which are strange names for beers. No matter, it's just a great day for goat and beer fanciers."

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery , was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery: I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail loca
