Believe it or not, Men's Journal has really been paying attention to the craft beer scene, and just listed their 25 Best Beers in the World. Local craft can Sly Fox Pikeland Pils has made the list, joining the likes of beer-nerd wet dream icons like Schneider Aventinus, Rochefort 10, Saison DuPont, and Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout. That's a real list if there ever was one.
If you're still not convinced of Pikeland Pils' true greatness, Monk's owner Tom Peters—who single-handedly educated Philly about the world of Belgian beer, and, in some cases, beer in general—is often seen with a can of Pikeland. "It's the local beer I pick when I'm doing session drinking. It's awesome," said Peters.
Philly has been experiencing the excellence that is Pikeland Pils for years, so, we're not really surprised by this selection, and agree completely. But, it feels pretty good that our little beer in the can that could is finally getting the international love it truly deserves.
