Philadelphia’s renowned Belgian beer bar Monk’s Café and Santa Rosa’s Russian River Brewing Company are teaming up for an exciting fundraiser on Saturday, October 19 at 11:30am. Benefiting a breast cancer charity providing free screening and treatment to under or uninsured women, the event will feature Russian River’s sought after Framboise for a Cure among other beery treats.
Brewed once a year by adding an enormous amount of fresh raspberries to barrels filled with Temptation, the brewery’s chardonnay barrel-aged sour blonde ale, Framboise for a Cure is made every October to benefit a local Sonoma county breast cancer charity. A half keg will be tapped for draft pours, with 375mL bottles available for both on-site and takeout purchases.
Monk’s will also hold a pair of raffles, one featuring a 3-liter bottle of Framboise for a Cure, and another comprised of rare bottles from owner Tom Peters’ personal cellar. 100 tickets will be sold for each raffle at $10 each. Please note this event is CASH ONLY so come prepared!
The full taplist hasn’t been finalized yet, but if you know Monk’s Café, they hardly ever disappoint – especially when it comes to fundraisers. Plus, this is the only location East of Colorado to receive Framboise for a Cure, so don’t miss out.
Monk’s Café is located at 264 S. 16th Street in Philadelphia.
