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
The Pikeland Pils is getting a lot of press but all of the Sly Fox canned brews are excellent. Bottles too!
There might be a lot of activity to report on down on Bridge Street but we have a real treasure in Kimberton and Royersford– world class, excellent beer that is being noticed globally.
Also, Anon 4:23, Don't give up on Iron Hill just yet. Their everyday menu beers may be a bit...shall we say...'light in flavor', but they brew some one-off stuff that can curl your hair...
2) Sly Fox brews blow Iron Hill out of the water and their food is much better then Mollys.
If you want a good beer in a relaxed setting go to the Fox. If you want a bunch of hassles and to deal with a bunch of 20 something yuppies, then go to Mollys. Iron Hill is OK but why drive into Phoenixville where they have the whole police force hiding out for cheap DUIs?
It's not that I've given up on Iron Hill. Rather I prefer the beer at Sly Fox AND it is much cheaper. I can get a growler filled at Sly Fox for $9 compared with $15 at Iron Hill. Plus Sly Fox has all the choices of pre-packaged beers in cans and bottles.
