NEWS RELEASE: Sly Fox Brewing Company


Pottstown, PA -July 17, 2013 –Sly Fox Brewing Company of Pottstown, PA announced today that it would begin selling its beer in the Maryland market immediately and that the move would be marked at a celebratory party at Frisco Taphouse & Brewery in Columbia tonight.  A brewery representative will be on hand and there will be 16 Sly Fox beers on tap and two cask-conditioned firkins on the bar.  A similar event is planned for Max's Taphouse in Baltimore for next Thursday, July 25th.

"We are delighted to announce our partnership with Bond Distributing Company in Baltimore," said Director of Sales Patrick Mullin, "and equally pleased that we can finally satisfy the demand for Sly Fox beers in the state of Maryland.  We were very impressed with Bond's commitment to the craft beer category and their execution with their present portfolio.  We're really looking forward to working with them.

"Bond will be handling our products in Baltimore, Howard, Carroll, Harford and Cecil counties as well as in Baltimore City.  Other parts of Maryland will be added to our distribution footprint in the near future.  We are sending our entire portfolio of year-round and seasonal beers in cans, 750ml bottles and on draft to Maryland starting today.

"We are thrilled and honored to add Sly Fox into our Bond Craft portfolio," said Matt Crow, Director of Craft & Import Sales.  "Sly Fox fits perfectly into our strategy of Maryland/Regional Craft offerings as well as select National Craft Brands." Sly Fox joins Bond's Craft portfolio which includes Boston Beer, New Belgium, Shiner, Harpoon, Boulevard, Terrapin, Yards, and Maryland breweries Flying Dog, DuClaw, The Brewers Art, and Peabody Heights.

In addition to expanding farther into Maryland, Sly Fox plans to open the Virginia and Washington, DC markets as well by the end of the year, Mullin added. "When we built our new brewery in Pottstown, we committed to growing our distribution area," he said, "and the clear demand for our award-winning beers in this exciting regional market was a major factor in the decision to increase our production."
When this latest expansion is complete, Sly Fox beers will be available in six states and the District of Columbia.

Sly Fox Brewing Co. was originally founded as a brewpub in Phoenixville, PA in December 1995 by the Giannopoulos family and is the oldest still-operating brewpub in the Delaware Valley. Demand for the brewery's award winning creations led to the opening of a production facility in 2004 and greater distribution of the Sly Fox portfolio of beers. A canning line was soon added as Sly Fox became the first brewery in the Mid-Atlantic region to embrace what has become one of the most popular trends in craft brewing.  Continued growth fueled the opening in March 2012 of a state-of-the-art new production brewery in Pottstown, PA , with Sly Fox now being distributed in 5 states throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
