Nature of the Brew

The Sly Fox Brewing Company creates a special beer
to benefit the Schuylkill River Trail

Southeastern Pennsylvanians who love nothing more than enjoying a cold, local beer in the great outdoors needn’t look further than Sly Fox Brewing Company of Pottstown to satisfy their thirst. In April, the brewery will release a new craft beer inspired by and benefitting the Schuylkill River Trail.

A portion of the sales of SRT Ale, a “hop-forward American Pale Ale” best for post-activity consumption because of its 4.7 percent alcohol by volume level, will go toward improvement projects on the trail it represents. The Schuylkill River Trail (SRT), which stretches from Pottsville to Philadelphia, is a multi-recreational series of trails along the Schuylkill River. Currently, the Schuylkill River National and State Heritage Area is looking to further expand SRT trail routes in addition to keeping up with regular maintenance. The donations from SRT Ale figure to be a big help.

It's still winter, but let carnitas warm you up

Ah, spring. The promise of sunshine, blooming trees, crunchy new vegetables and the meals that taste the way spring can make us feel: bright, fresh and full of life. While we can’t hasten the arrival of the most hopeful season, we can bring some of that energy into the kitchen with this meal, which makes use of late winter staples, but tastes sunny. Slow-cooked carnitas, scented with smoky cumin, cinnamon and orange, make an easy meal to share with friends. Tucked into tortillas with the colorful crunch of winter vegetables, zippy in a lime vinaigrette and a few drops of salsa—made with dried chilies instead of fresh—and you’ll swear you’re sitting in the sunshine.
