Evil Genius Beer Company wants to remind fans to ‘trust the process’ as the 76ers go into their second round of the playoffs this Saturday. The Fishtown brewery has released a special Sixers inspired beer called "Trust the Process" in celebration of the team's recent win in the first round.
Brewed with oat malts and dry hopped with Amarillo hops, co-Founder Trevor Hayward describes the beer as having "bold notes of guava, lemon, pineapple, clementines," including, "delicious victory."
The Sixers, the no. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference, face off against the no. 2 seed, Toronto Raptors, this coming Saturday in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Sixers won their first round series against the Brooklyn Nets 4-1, beating the Nets 122-100 in Game 5.
"Trust the Process" is currently available in a four-pack or a 24 case of 16 ounce cans. (The four-pack costs $20 a pop.) It will also be available on draft at the Evil Genius Lab and Brewery and outside at their beer garden.
Hayward, a huge sports fan, discusses the company's excitement to release a beer inspired by the Sixers. He says, “Trusting the process is something we went through as we have experienced so much growth in the last two years - and especially in building the brewery and then in launching the beer garden. We think people are going to enjoy it – maybe we can remind Sixers fans that sometimes patience pays off!"
"Trust the Process" will only be available for a limited time during the playoffs. Evil Genius will host a special watch party for the game this Saturday, April 27, at 8 p.m.
Evil Genius Lab and Brewery is located in Fishtown at 1727 N. Front St.
