Harry Potter Drinks and Running Event
Evil Genius Beer Company in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is celebrating the opening of Harry Potter: The Exhibition by releasing a beer that’s inspired by the Wizarding World.
Harry Potter: The Exhibition arrived at the Franklin Institute on February 18 (read our report on it here!), and in celebration, the brewery released its special-edition butterbeer.
It’s LeviOSa, Not LevioSA is a vanilla caramel blond ale with a 6% ABV. The beer is made with natural flavors and has a sweet taste thanks to the toasted and caramelized malts used during the brewing process. It will be available exclusively at the brewery, either by draft or growler.
Through March 20, the company will also be offering two Harry Potter–inspired cocktails: the Throwing Snowballs at Voldemort (a butterbeer slushie with vodka), and the Defrosting Broomsticks (a butterbeer-inspired martini).
Evil Genius is also offering a 0.5K charity run on March 12 at 12:30 p.m., which will be hosted by the Hogwarts Running Club. Tickets cost $30 and include a free print and swag bag, bottle openers, and more. Proceeds of this event will go toward the charity Trans Lifeline, which provides emotional and financial support to transgender individuals.
Tickets for the event can be purchased online.
