Sly Fox IPA Day 2007

So Friday (12.14.07) was Sly Fox Brewery’s annual IPA Day event. To say it was ridiculous fun would be an understatement.

Sly Fox IPA Day 2007

See the rest of the pictures from this year here,

and the pictures from 2006 here.

This year it was Mike, Robert, Mitchell, and myself that made the journey. We all wound-up with the day off from work so we decided to meet early for breakfast and head on up to Sly Fox in Pheonixville. We met at my house and I decided to kick-it local style and made pork-roll, egg, and cheese on kaiser buns for breakfast, they were banging. We then hit the pike and went we to Sly Fox arriving around 10:30AM. This year Sly Fox had 15 different IPAs available. Last year they sold it as one giant 15 glass sampler, this year they sold it as three 5 glass flights. I liked the impression of the 15 glasser better, but the 5 glass flights really only made sense. We stayed for quite a while have all three flights each, lunch, and a couple additional pints. The day was wacky in the best sense. We got home maybe around 5PM, that’s some serious IPA dedication. I’m already looking forward to next year.

    Dude… Jealous. I spent my day in the car… drinking IPAs sounds much fun.

    Oh wait. This was friday… No, I spent Friday at work. Saturday was spent in the car… as was today. I forgot how long this drive to Atlanta is.

    I’ll bring you home a couple bottles of the 2007 Vintage Ale from Trader Joe’s, if you’re interested.

    Maybe you should have been drinking IPAs on the way to Atlanta, Donna could always drive!?

    Just kidding, but for real though, if you could bring back a bottle of the Trader Joe’s beers again that would be great. Have fun while you’re down there.

    I’ll do what I can on the TJ’s beer – but I may need Donna’s folks to bring it up sometime in the future. Apparently the chain is still trying to get the new beer thru GA’s label board, and as a result all the beer is sitting in warehouses waiting for shipment to stores – but until the GA gov’t approves it, they can’t sell it. Considering this is the end of the year, a holiday season, and government in general moves so friggin slow – I am fully expecting to leave here without it now 🙁

    We may be able to swing thru a TJs when we’re driving through North Carolina and grab some, if the GA thing falls through. Will keep you posted.
