So sure, the Superbowl is coming right up (go Broncos), but for some of you out there, the big game just doesn’t get your juices flowing. What does get you pumped up? Beer. And the good people at Bru and U-Bahn are coming through for you with two events this Sunday, January 31, focusing on rare stouts and sours.
How rare, you ask? Super rare. As in almost never put on draft anywhere. So rare that one of the beers is made from yeast that went to space.
I know what you’re thinking: Drag queens and a beer festival usually don’t go together. Leave it to the folks at Taproom on 19th and U-Bahn to break the rules by throwing two huge drag bashes last week during the annual Philly Beer Week.
Queens took to Taproom on 19th to present “Leading Ladies of Philly Beer Week,” while U-Bahn’s stage was invaded for “The Old Main Drag,” which featured hot male waitstaff and beer reps dressing up for the occasion. You can check out some of the hot moments in the photos below, thanks to Aversa PR and Events.
A new twist on the BRU girls as you've never seen them.
Contestants have their Studio 54 moment after the show.

With the local music scene on a decidedly upward trajectory, it’s a good thing Center City just welcomed two new music venues. Here’s what to expect when you go.
This 2,985-square-foot club in the basement of BRÜ debuted in March. It’s all about small local rock bands and singer-songwriters here, with two to three live shows per week and DJs filling in the gaps. If the band sucks—hey, it happens—check out the arcade. Yes, there’s Ms. Pac-Man. 1320 Chestnut Street, Midtown Village, 215-800-1079.
