Evil Genius Beer Company taps a much needed distraction with the debut of another very serious beer with a very silly (and timely) name. The Philadelphia and Fishtown-based brewer announces the debut of a Tiger King inspired pale ale that pays homage to one of the biggest cultural phenomenons sweeping the nation. Felt Cute, Might Feed My Husband to a Tiger Later IDK is a special edition Pale Ale with 4.2% ABV that is available in growlers through carry-out at the Evil Genius Beer Company Lab at 1727 Front Street.
“Independent breweries, bars, restaurants and small businesses across our city and our nation are facing such tough times right now,” said Evil Genius Partner Trevor Hayward. “So many breweries, like ours, have had to cut staff, make hard decisions and offer take-out only. This time of year we normally would be ready to fly open the gates to our outdoor beer garden and launch several new releases for the spring and summer. The time for those things will come down the road soon enough. While we wait, we wanted to keep our creative juices flowing, do all we can to keep operations intact, keep up with demand, and to serve up a much needed distraction. Our brand-new beer pays homage to The Tiger King. While we don’t know what Carole and Joe Exotic would drink, we know that our new beer pairs perfectly with a night of binge-worthy television.”
Known for very silly names for very serious beers, Evil Genius continues their tradition with Felt Cute, Might Feed My Husband to a Tiger Later IDK. The new pale ale roars to life with 4.2% abv.featuring Bravo, Columbus, Cascade, Simcoe and Apollo hops.

I Know Him! 7.2% holiday saison.
