In this round of the #OdessaBrewbracket, Yards and Evil Genius are going head-to-head in a conflict of traditional versus inventive and experimental beer.

Yards has ties to British inspired ales, striving to achieve balance and subtlety through careful selection of ingredients and an unwavering commitment to artisanal production practices. Fan favorites include the Love Stout and Thomas Jefferson's Tavern Ale. They reach for inspiration from the olden British times, which directly clashes with Evil Genius' beer philosophy. Evil Genius is all about craft beer and experimentation--founded by two local Villanova grads who needed a better job prospect after the recession. Evil Genius brews unusual beers, where favorites include Ma! The Meatloaf! and similarly hilariously titled names. Both beers are about quality even if their beer philosophies are directly contrary of old versus new.
