Sly Fox Bock Fest and Goat Race, Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
The history of the Sly Fox Bock Fest and Goat Race
The Sly Fox Bock Festival & Goat Race is held on the first Sunday of May every year, rain or shine. It has become one of the Philadelphia region's favorite beer-focused celebrations, drawing crowds estimated in the 2,500 to 3,000 range to the Sly Fox Brewhouse & Eatery in Phoenixville for over a decade, before relocating to the Sly Fox production brewery grounds in Pottstown for 2015.


BOCK FEST: Goat Races,
German Food
& Fun!
A German menu is offered to complement what might be the largest offering of bock-style beers by any brewery in the United States at one time. Brewmaster Brian O’Reilly and his crew produce a mouth-watering lineup: Slacker Bock, Helles Bock, Instigator Doppelbock, two Eisbocks (usually Slacker and Instigator) and a Maibock. The day marks the release of the Maibock which is tapped immediately after the race and named in honor of the winner.

For the first time in Bock Fest history, this year's festival will take place at the Sly Fox Brewery in Pottstown. A wide open, grassy field neighboring the 30,000 square foot facility will be the new site for the running of the ruminants and plenty of festival fun. Live German Oompah music will be playing from a stage and coverage of the Goat Races will be playing live on a jumbotron. Afterwards, some of the goats and their owners mingle with the crowd, delighting the many children in attendance with their families.
