It was a soggy day but hundreds of volleyball players and spectators jammed into Memorial Park, Pottstown. The weather tomorrow is supposed to be much better so hopefully it will be a brighter day and no rain! This was the third day of the Rumble. Saturday and Sunday are the two biggest days of competition.
Slyfox’s CANJAM seems to be growing in popularity every year — it’s a twofold event featuring live music in a lush pasture next the brewery and the world’s largest Kan Jam™. competition. The outdoor game for four players is sweeping the nation with weekend warriors voraciously playing pick-up games on suburban lawns, parking lot tailgates and anywhere else they can find room.
Add to that, the brewery’s portfolio of authentic and original beers and a free music festival and you have the fixings for a great outdoor event.
The lineup for the music festival begins at 2 p.m, and features American Babies, Cheerleader, Hoots & Hellmouth, Shrimpboat and the Whiskeyhickon Boys. The bands represent many genres and styles guaranteed to please festival goers of all ages.
Sly Fox has let borough officials in Pottstown know of plans to move the annual spring Bockfest to Pottstown’s Circle of Progress from its traditional location at the brew pub along Route 113.
POTTSTOWN — The bar was bustling during the grand opening of Manatawny Still Works Friday night.
The newest addition to the cluster of businesses on Circle of Progress Drive is the brainchild of John Giannopoulos, the owner of Sly Fox Brewery, Jeff Vaughan, Paul Czachor, Al Matarazzo and Derek Menaldino.
Right now the distillery pumps out vodka, un-aged whiskey and — as of Friday morning — a double distilled rum.
And those three spirits took center stage Friday after the ribbon cutting ceremony.
POTTSTOWN, PA — The parking lot in front of the Sly Fox Brewery and Tasting Room was transformed into a laid-back party scene Saturday during the Taps, Tunes and Trucks event.
The first ever combination event was the brain child of John Giannopoulis, who teamed up with representatives from the ODDyssey Half Marathon, which organized the preceding 5K race.
“(We) wanted to do a race out at the brewery and we were also talking about having a food truck event so we tied the two events together,” he said. “It’s about beer, food, running and music.”
While relaxing after the run, several teams of two lined up to play a larger-than-life version of beer pong that used trash cans painted red instead of cups and soccer balls instead of ping pong balls.
POTTSTOWN, PA — A combination of perfect weather, lively music and Frisbees brought thousands out to the Circle of Progress Saturday for the annual Sly Fox Can Jam.
“The weather is beautiful,” said Mike Geary. “Great music. Great crowd.”
Crowds gathered in the grass lot next to the Pottstown Sly Fox location where a stage was set up for the acts which came through, headlined by Toy Soldiers.
“We’re big music fans and we really wanted to find some good bands that play music you can enjoy beer to,” said Sly Fox Brewmaster Brian O’Reilly.
POTTSTOWN — Fourth of July celebrations in Pottstown get an early start with the 28th Annual Pottstown Patriotic 5K Run, followed by one of the region’s best parades.
Registration for the 5K run starts at 7 a.m. and the 3.2-mile race, which snakes through Pottstown’s streets, starts at 8 a.m.
The race starts and ends at The Hill School, and will be held rain or shine.
The parade begins with an airplane fly-over (weather permitting) at 10:15 a.m. and starts off at the intersection of High and Keim streets and ends at High and Manatawny streets.
POTTSTOWN — As twilight fell, two pairs who’d battled through two full days of Men’s Open play at the Pottstown Rumble battled in an evenly-matched final for $5,000 before a crowd of hundreds.
When it was over, Hudson Bates and Mark Berik, the 2011 Rumble Men’s Open Champions, added the 2013 crown to their resumes.
“Honestly, the Rumble is the best grass tournament in the country, I think,” said Bates, from Richmond, Va. “They stepped it up big-time this year. Great organizers, great sponsors, it’s just a fun, fun tournament. It’s awesome.”
By winning two games 11-6 and 11-9 in the best of three final, Bates and Berik, from Queens, N.Y., beat a pair from Ellicott City, Md., whom the courtside announcer dubbed the “Maryland Marauders,” Aaron Russell and Eric Lucas.
