Most of the Philadelphians I know love two things a whole lot: baseball and beer. Put them together and it usually results in a couple of cold ones in the parking lots down in South Philly before a game in the summertime. But finding a convenient, easy-drinking, and delicious beer isn't always as simple as you'd hope.

Enter Sly Fox's Helles Golden Lager which for the first time ever will be available in a can which has what they're calling a "360 lid" that actually tears all the way off so it drinks like a glass and lets you get the full and enjoyable bouquet.
Here's what the local Pottstown/Phoenixville brewer has to say about it on their website:
A German-style golden lager brewed with
imported German Pils malt and Saaz and Hallertauer hops. This
light-bodied beer offers a gentle, dry finish. A perennial favorite in
the Sly Fox pubs and our brewer's go-to session beer. Helles Golden
Lager in a can offers wide open flavor and aroma.
Having spent some time in Munich for Oktoberfest drinking giant steins of beer, I came to really enjoy the helles style.
Sly Fox's Prima Pikeland Pils has been a staple in our tailgating rotation. I'm willing to bet Matt P. and co. will be enjoying a few of these new Helles cans down in the lots in Chester this summer.
