Love Beer and the SRT? You Need to Know About These Spring Events

Celebrate the Schuylkill River Trail with a cold one this Earth Day.

How great is it that Earth Day is on a weekend this year? Events celebrating the great outdoors and this lovely planet as a whole keep popping up and we’ve got yet another round of ’em to add to your list: on Saturday April 22nd, Sly Fox Brewing Company will be hosting the launch of this year’s SRT Ale, the exclusive American pale ale benefitting the Schuylkill River Trail.

As you may remember from last year, SRT Spreekend is a weekend-long event honoring the great SRT and inviting fans of beer and the trail (excuse us while we raise our hands) to run, kayak, cycle or get involved in trail clean-ups along it. To bring these celebratory activities to a close, Sly Fox is hosting a shindig at St. Michael’s Park in Mont Clare from 2 to 8 p.m., featuring live jam bands, food trucks and the official debut of this year’s SRT Ale. Below, all the activities on the roster for SRT Spreekendso you don’t miss a single beer-fueled moment of the celebration!
