I first got wind of Sly Fox Bock Fest about a six months ago, while sitting in a random hotel room and basking in the guilty pleasure that is HDNet. There was that lovable, boozy traveler, Art Mann, wandering the globe and drinking with the best of him. And then… there were goats.
“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 in recent years.”
It’s already obvious that we love a good beer festival over here on I Drunk That. But even more than that, we really love people who break the typical festival model of standing in line to get a tiny cup of beer just to go and stand in line again. Sly Fox Bock Fest shatters that monotony with by pairing pints of Sly Fox german-inspired beers with an oompah band and competative goat racing in the parking lot of a Philadelphia Suburb. Awesome? You Bet! Check out the promo video above or embrace the full experience with a terrible TV grab of Art Mann’s segment (complete with viewer commentary) below. We’ll see you out in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania this May!
