Evil Genius Beer Co.
Evil Genius Beer Company was started by two Villanova graduates back in 2008. After years of working out of a borrowed facility, they finally found a space of their own. In April, 2017, the Evil Genius Beer Company opened their new 6,000-square-foot tasting room - dubbed “The Lab” - in Fishtown.
The Lab is located in an old abandoned 19th-century carriage factory at 1727 N Front Street. This new tasting room is located near two other Philly favorites, The Fillmore and the new Philadelphia Distilling Company. Evil Genius Beer Company is also open for tours of their 15-barrel brewing system.
The concrete bar, exposed brick, and salvaged roof wood benches and tables gives a very distinctive grimy feel reminiscent of a corny movie super-villian lair. Further indoors you'll also find a ’90s-style “basement” area with a rec room motif. There is also a seasonal side yard that will be open in the warmer months as a beer garden and can seat up to 150 people.
