"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 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".

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 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 too, 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.

Mariah Carey: Battle of the Vocal Wobblers, and Brunch (Taylor's Version): A Swifties Drag Brunch Special.
