Haze Fix presents a very hazy straw color in the glass, topped by a vigorous, rocky cap of foam. Look for a ton of luscious and inviting fruit notes in the aroma, offering a complex fruit cocktail impression. We picked up tropical notes of pineapple and passion fruit, an amalgam of candied orange, tangerine, and grapefruit citrus, significant peach-like stone fruit notes, and some hints of pear, along with secondary floral tones. All these juicy elements explode across the palate too, joined by a nice dose of hop bitterness that augments the citrus character with a bit of a zesty, resinous bite. We also enjoyed the simple but sturdy malt backbone, which offers the supple feel we look for in hazy IPAs. For pairing options, we’d go with a teriyaki chicken sandwich, Thai pineapple fried rice, spicy mango habanero chicken wings, or grilled meats with a sweet and fruity barbecue sauce alongside grilled asparagus. Cheers!
The Sly Fox story began in 1994 when Pete Giannopoulos left his job in corporate sales to pursue his dream of opening a brewpub. But when he talked to the New Jersey investors who’d been encouraging him, he discovered that talking was the extent of their game. Having lost the investors he thought were on board, things all fell into place with a single suggestion from family patriarch, Dr. Peter H. Giannopoulos: “Why not let us be your partners?” With that, what had been simply a personal business prospect suddenly became a prospective family trade.
After finding a suitable location for their operation, Pete quickly went to work designing the pub, while he and his younger brother John set out to become professional brewers. The whole family pitched in, with Mrs. Giannopoulos helping to decorate and various aunts and uncles helping out. Older brother Harry was put in charge of the books and financial records, while younger siblings Wendy and Glenn signed on to work at the pub. The name “Sly Fox” was chosen to reflect the brewpub’s home in Pennsylvania’s Chester County and the area’s fox-hunting tradition. The Sly Fox Brewhouse & Eatery opened its doors on December 20, 1995 in Phoenixville, PA.
In 2003, Sly Fox was named among the top three brewpubs in the country by Beer Advocate and in 2004, having outgrown their initial location, the brewery moved into a new 20-barrel brewhouse in Royersford, PA. In 2006, Sly Fox became the first Mid-Atlantic brewery to install a canning line, pioneering packaging that has now largely become the default for craft beer. 2012 saw another expansion, this time to their current location, a new 40-barrel brewhouse in Pottstown. In 2021, Sly Fox passed into the next generation as Pete’s son Peter took over as president. Over the years, this highly acclaimed brewery has taken home numerous Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals from the Great American Beer Festival.
