Philadelphia, PA - For the past twelve years, the brewers at Evil Genius Beer Company have prided themselves on their “Very Silly Names for Very Serious Beers” often citing citing fan-favorite movie quotes, hilarious memes, and timeless song lyrics. Brews like “Stacy’s Mom," “There’s No Crying In Baseball," and even “I Love Lamp” have become staples in beer fridges across the Northeast. Now, the Philadelphia-based brewers are giving the public a chance to get in on the action and create some nostalgia of their own with a competition to name one of their upcoming releases. The winner will have their name suggestion on an Evil Genius beer and win a $500 gift card to the Evil Genius taproom in Fishtown. The beer will then be released as a can release and be available across the Evil Genius ten state distribution network. 

“Nostalgia is at the very core of what we do,” said Evil Genius Marketing Manager Ryan Keller. “We want to make sure that with every sip you’re not just tasting a damn, good beer; but also, evoking positive memories along with it. Pair those two together and each time you crack open a can it’s a drinking experience unlike any other. We want to give our consumers the chance to make that happen for themselves and get directly involved in the process with this contest." 

This week users can visit any of Evil Genius’ social media accounts to get involved (@evilgeniusbeer on Facebook, Instagram, Tiktok, and X). Simply navigate to their profile and select their recent post about the contest to submit a name suggestion via the comments. There’s no limit to how many names beer lovers can suggest but if a name is suggested more than once only the first user to suggest the name will get credit for doing so. Comment submissions will remain open through Friday, November 3rd at Midnight. 
Once the submissions close they will be reviewed by the Evil Genius team who will select their top five beer names. These names will then go to a public social media poll on Monday, November 6th across their aforementioned accounts. The winner of this poll will be rewarded with bragging rights for life as their name suggestion appears on an Evil Genius beer as well as a $500 gift card to the Evil Genius taproom in Philadelphia.

The beer in question will be a canned release from Evil Genius and will be available across their ten state distribution network. The style is yet to be determined but the beer will be brewed and sent to retailers around June of 2024.
