Every time I would run into Sly Fox brewer Brian O’Reilly or any of the other higher-ups at Sly Fox Brewing, I would gently (or annoyingly) suggest they put Sly Fox Helles Golden Lager in a can. I’d tell them that the drinkable lager would be the perfect gateway beer into Sly Fox and craft beer. Perfect for after a softball (in my case hockey) game or tailgating, it seemed a natural for Sly Fox’s line of canned beers.
But it wasn’t till today that they actually made it available in 12-ounce cans. And even better, it will be beer’s first 360 End can. A can where you tear off the full top, like a can of soup. In an interview with Don Russell, O’Reilly says the new tear of lid will offer canned beer drinkers the chance to smell the aroma and “better appreciate the beer without pouring it into a glass.”
Helles cans are available at both Sly Fox locations starting today and will be on store shelves in April.

So the biggest news this week was obviously the arrival on the stands of Philadelphia magazine’s 50 Best Pizzas issue. But that wasn’t all we did. No, we were also poking our noses into the kitchens of Philadelphia’s finest restaurants to see who was using Betty Crocker Potato Buds,weighing in on the Amoroso’s strike and subsequent hoagie shortages, giving you the run-down on the just-opened Serafina and figuring out what was happening with American Sardine Bar–which had blown past its opening date like it wasn’t even there.
Here’s some of the other stuff you might’ve missed…
A Sly Fox Beer Dinner at Matyson Scallops, foie gras, pork belly and beer? Sign us up.
A Brunch Menu For Dogs We SO wish this was a joke. Unfortunately, it’s not.
Shola Vs. Blatstein To say that this story of ego, money and the (non)opening of Speck pissed a few people off would be the understatement of the year.
The Great Philadelphia Pizza Quest In which we explain what it was like to eat 1,000 pizzas
The Great Pizza Quest: By The Numbers In which we explain that it was actually more like 1,110 pizzas (and 640,000 calories)
Don’t forget to keep an eye on the Foobooz Facebook page and Twitter feed to stay up-to-date on all the restaurant news in the city. And if you’re also looking for some random thoughts on pizza, tacos, foie gras, pie, chicken wings, zombies, robots and Buckaroo Banzai, you can follow me @Jason_Sheehan.
