Evil Genius has some of the weirdest-named beers you’ll ever have, and while they’re served in tons of bars around the city, the best place to consume them is at their big brewery in Fishtown. Their selection is always changing, but whether you’re drinking a “The Floor Is Lava” or a “Dorothy In The Streets, Blanche In The Streets,” you’ll be impressed. Just keep in mind that almost all of their beers have super high ABVs, so even if you can normally drink six beers and still be a functioning adult, you should probably dial it down a bit here.
