Evil Genius Beer Co. invites you to their Nostalgia Fest Block Party, a day of throwbacks, live music, and retro fun.
Remember the good old days when your favorite tunes played on a loop, and retro video games were your go-to source of entertainment? Evil Genius Beer Co. is here to take you on a nostalgic trip down memory lane with their much-anticipated “Nostalgia Fest Block Party.” This all-ages, family-friendly event celebrating Evil Genius Beer Co.’s remarkable 12-year journey promises to be a day filled with everything you hold dear from the past.
On Saturday, September 9th, from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm, the 1700 block of N. Front Street in Fishtown, just outside their taproom at 1727 N. Front Street, will transform into a haven of nostalgia. And the best part? It’s free and family-friendly, so gather your crew, including your furry friends, and join the fun.
Evil Genius Beer Co. began its journey in 2011 when two best friends, Trevor Hayward and Luke Bowen, decided to turn their passion for great beer and unforgettable memories into a business. Known for their clever beer names inspired by fan-favorite movie quotes, memes, and timeless song lyrics, Evil Genius quickly made a name for itself. Their slogan, “Very Silly Names For Very Serious Beers,” perfectly captures their spirit.
Over the last twelve years, Evil Genius Beer Company has become a household name in Philadelphia and beyond. Their beers now grace fridges in ten states across the Northeast and Midwest. But what truly sets Evil Genius apart is their dedication to evoking positive memories with every sip.
“We want to evoke a positive memory with every sip of our beer,” says Evil Genius Co-Founder Trevor Hayward. “Nostalgia has always been at the core of what we do, and we wanted to throw a day to celebrate all things throwback for our 12-year anniversary.”
The Nostalgia Fest Block Party promises a day packed with retro-themed delights. You can explore vintage-style Philly-themed shirts and hats from Shibe Vintage Sports, discover high-quality thrift finds from Eternal Trend NJ, and relive the magic of retro games and accessories thanks to Zac from Styrofoamdrone.
Amelie’s Bark Shop will be on-site in their VW van for dog lovers, offering fresh homemade dog treats and toys. New & Wesley Images will also showcase unique vintage photograph prints.
Throughout the day, enjoy the rocking tunes of The Lenahan Band, a local rock trio performing 90s hits from 2 pm to 5 pm. And take advantage of the chance to get your face painted for free, courtesy of IFacepaint215.
Feeling hungry? Philly’s Finest Sambonis, the Samboni Boys, will serve mouthwatering sandwiches to keep you fueled for all the festivities. Of course, Evil Genius will be right there, too, manning their outdoor bar and serving up their exceptional brews.
