Philadelphia, PA - Evil Genius Beer Company has made a name for itself with funny beer names, pop culture references, and a quippy attitude of sheer irreverence. The Philadelphia-based brewery is making waves with a new series of summer fun with drag brunches thanks to their partnership with Summer of Troy Productions.
Hot off the heels (figuratively and literally) of several sold-out Swiftie themed-drag shows in the spring, Evil Genius returns with a full line-up for July, August, and September, including Hoedown Throwdown: A Country Drag Brunch celebrating Pop Country's biggest stars from Jolene to car keyin' Carrie and everything in between at Evil Genius Beer Company on July 24th; Ariana Grande Vs. Mariah Carey: Battle of The Vocal Wobblers Drag Brunch on August 7th, and Brunch (Taylor's Version): A Swifties Drag Brunch Special on August 21st and September 4th. Tickets are all on sale now and selling fast, with starting prices at $20 a person for bar seating, $25 for general seating, and $50 for VIP seating, which includes a seat near the stage, a free pint, a six pack to go and a raffle ticket.
"We started throwing these awesome shows in Pride month of 2021, and they became an overnight sensation," said Trevor Hayward, Co-founder of Evil Genius Beer Company. "The crowd comes out in droves as we've never seen before, and every event has been an instant classic. We've built a great relationship with the cast at Summer of Troy Productions and can't wait to show you what we have in store for the rest of the summer".
Evil Genius has been throwing monthly drag brunches over the past year, and now they are upping the ante by hosting them bi-weekly, each with their unique theme, in their Fishtown taproom dubbed "The Lab." Some of the awesome themes they've worked with in the past range from holiday specials like "It's All Just a Brunch of Hocus Pocus" and "Sleigh My Name, Sleigh My Name" to nostalgic period pieces such as "Totally 80s" and "Battle of the 90s Pop Princesses". The brunches even get the crowd involved, with many shows boasting features such as trivia, costume contests, dance-offs, and raffle prizes to match the theme of the day.
To make this all possible, Evil Genius has partnered with Summer of Troy Productions, one of the top drag queen production companies in the greater Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware area. They boast an all-star cast including Miss Troy, who was recently voted Philadelphia's Best Comedy Queen and one of Delaware's Most Influential People of 2022, Summer St. Cartier, who is a well-known performer and event producer in the drag scene, and Morgan Morgan Morgan a charity champion for many LGBTQIA+ youth organizations.
