As you might have expected, Geekadelphia’s inaugural Philly Geek Awards was a thoroughly nerdy affair. There were pocket protecters and slide rules as far as the eye could see. There was even a dude dressed as Severus Snape from the Harry Potter series of movies. But one guy who appeared to be clearly out of his element at the celebration of geekiness, was the always cool-as-can-be Tom Kehoe, the founder and brewmaster of Yards Brewing Co. He was there to accept the ‘Best Geek Themed Noms & Beverages’ award, which he was given for coming up with E=MC Beered, a specialty one-off brew that was made for last spring’s Philadelphia Science Festival.
