SRT Ale, the Ale for the Trail

Sly Fox Brewery has partnered with Schuylkill River Greenways for the past four years by producing SRT Ale, an ale that benefits the Schuylkill River Trail. SRT Ale will be available after this year’s bike ride at the festival and all cyclists get a FREE beer ticket.

During the 2021 Ride for the River celebration, Sly Fox presented representatives of the Schuylkill River Greenways National Heritage Area with a check of $6,212.89 from the sales of this year’s SRT Ale. To date, Sly Fox has donated a total of about $40,200 from the sale of SRT Ale. The ale is available all year long.
