Sly Fox Rt. 113 IPA
I often find canned beers aren't able to pull off the flavor that bottled beers (let alone drafts) bring to the table. However, Royersford, Pennsylvania's Sly Fox must be doing something to preserve their beverages when they fill up the aluminum. Rt. 113 has hoppiness to spare and exceptional flavor!


  1. Canning is fastly becoming the preferred method for craft brewers as it prevents light from skunking the beer, more so than dark/brown bottles. Consider that most cans are being made by Ball (aka Ball Jars) who know something about canning!

  2. Very interesting! I wonder if there is somewhat of a psychological thing going on as well when one drinks a can. In other words, I am so used to drinking from bottle that when I drink from a can it affects how the flavor comes across. I have noticed that Sly Fox's are very good in can. Then, the other day, the wife has a Wittekerke (from very reputable Belgian brewer)and it falls short. So some are good, some not so much.
