 Behind the Barrel!

 A new series where we bring you the Barrel's Brewers!


Behind every great barrel is a great brewer. As the year rolls on, we here at the Barrel House will be inviting our favorite breweries to come to our restaurant for a little shindig. As our love of craft beer continues to grow we want to learn more about the process of brewing and the folks behind them. We wanna meet the brewers behind the passion we pour! The kind of folks who share our love of beer will truly enjoy this series. True master brewers spend their time learning about different hops, different malts, different grains and how they interact with one another. We are hosting this series because we believe it is important to know where your beer comes from! If you've ever wanted to get close to the brewers this series will be your chance. #BEHINDTHEBARREL

~~~~We love craft beer. We drink craft beer. And now, we make craft beer. 

In 2008, our founders Luke Bowen and Trevor Hayward met in an accounting class at Villanova University. Realizing that their job prospects were grim due to the recession, they decided to follow their passion and start their own brewery. 

Their journey took them first to South Bend, Indiana, then to Cooperstown, New York, and finally to Hartford, Connecticut. This exhaustive search landed them a partner who cared as much about craft beer as Luke and Trevor. Today the amazing team at Thomas Hooker Brewing Company works with our founders to craft the highest quality beers possible. 

The next step for Evil Genius is to build their own brewery. Right now, Luke and Trevor are searching for locations around Philadelphia. As Evil Genius turns 3 in September, we have you, our customers to thank for helping make this dream a reality 


The Evil Genius Team!

On Thurdsay April 23 join Evil Genius as we host them for our next installment of the Behind the Barrel Series! Starting at 7pm join us for a "meet, greet n' drink" with founder Trevor Hayward, his genius crew and maybe his randall! He'll be in house to pour joy in a glass, infuse qiuck tastiness, and dicuss his gypsy brewery and how it differs from conventional brewing! We'll be pouring a handful of their suds including something special from their randall. They're evil geniuses who are definitely onto something huge as they continue to cook up specialties in their laboratory.  We just wonder how it compares to Dexter's laboratory? Come find out for yourselves and dont worry we'll be sure no one named Dee-Dee comes by to ruin the Lab.

Because it only comes around once a year. Join us for some beers that will have you wondering if they're truly legal. We are celebrating this "holiday" with some serious hoppy sticky icky! Dont worry about music either as we'll have a play list that will fit right in! Just remember that smoking in restaurants is illegal so take care of that sh*t at home. And you'll feel like you never left home after catching some of the heady aromas coming off these beers! 

On  tap will be heady hops like:
