PHOTOS: Philly Beer Week Brings Out Loads of Drag Queens

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.

They’re contentious– what even is a great bagel, and does it really matter if it is about to be toasted and topped? (Serious Eats recently addressed the matter).
