Sly Fox beer launches in open end cans

With the April launch of Helles Golden Lager, its ninth canned beer, Sly Fox Brewing Co. of Pottstown, Pennsylvania becomes the first brewery in North

America to use the 360 End beverage can technology developed by Crown.  ( The entire lid of the can is removable, turning it into a drinking vessel and eliminating the need for separate glassware.

“This technology allows the full flavour and aroma of the beer to hit the drinker’s senses and makes the can an even more appealing package for outdoor activities and situations where you want to be able to move around and sip your beer easily,” says head brewer Brian O’Reilly.

Sly Fox beer with the 360 End will debut at the Craft Brewers Conference in Washington, DC this week where a special one-off brew, 360 IPA, will be available for attendees. 

While Helles is the only style scheduled to use the 360 End as a standard, the brewery’s flagship Pikeland Pils will be offered in the same format exclusively at Citizens Bank Park, the home of the Philadelphia Phillies, this spring and summer.

Helles Golden Lager will be available in cans and on draft year round, along with Sly Fox beers Pikeland Pils, Phoenix Pale Ale and Rt. 113 IPA.  Sly Fox seasonal canned and draft beers include Christmas Ale, Dunkel Lager, Odyssey Imperial IPA, Oktoberfest Lager and Royal Weisse. The brewery also offers four Belgian style beers in 750ml bottles: Black Raspberry Reserve, Ichor (quadruple), Incubus (tripel) and Saison Vos.
