Evil Genius Beer Company always has something brewing, whether it’s beer, or even more spirited activities.
During the months of July, August and September, the brand will host a wide variety drag brunches thanks to their partnership with Summer of Troy Productions, and every occasion has a theme to match.
“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, in a statement. “The crowd comes out in droves like 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.”
As a release states, 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 own unique theme in their Fishtown taproom dubbed “The Lab”. Some of the unique 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 typically get the crowd involved too, with many shows boasting features such as trivia, costume contests, dance offs, and raffle prizes to match the theme of the day.
The series of summer brunches first kicks off this weekend with ‘Hoedown Throwdown: A Country Drag Brunch Special,’ on July 24, and it will be followed by ‘Ariana Grande Vs. Mariah Carey: Battle of The Vocal Wobblers Drag Brunch’ on Aug. 7. There will then be two dates for ‘Brunch (Taylor’s Version): A Swifties Drag Brunch Special’—one on Aug. 21 and the other on Sept. 4.
