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."

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.
