Framboise For A Cure Breast Cancer Event

Saturday - October 19, 2013 @ 11:30AM / Ends: Saturday - October 19, 2013 @ 11:30PM
Charity Beer Event
Monk's Café, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
(215) 545-7005
Russian River Brewing Company’s Framboise For A Cure

SATURDAY, October 19th beginning at 11:30AM.

CASH ONLY!

We’re raising money for a Breast Cancer Charity which provides free screening and treatment to impoverished women. This is a great cause, so we’ve put together a special event and we will be donating 100% of the sales to this Charity.

Vinnie crafts this once-a-year beer by using RRBC Temptation as a base to which he adds a ton of fresh raspberries. It is a tad different each time and I can’t wait to taste this year’s version. The variation comes from both the wild yeasts and each year’s raspberry harvest.

Monk’s Café is the only place East of the Rockies to have this beer. So we’ll have a half keg, plus a few cases of bottles to offer this year. And YES, you may take a bottle to-go.

Natalie and Vinnie also sending along a 3 liter bottle of Framboise For A Cure which we will raffle off. We will sell 100 tickets at $10 each with the winner walking away with this über rare bottle.

We will also have another raffle featuring several very rare beers from Tom’s cellar. I haven’t put that together yet, but be assured, you will want to win this prize, too. We will sell 100 tickets at $10 each. The raffle winner walks away with these personally cellared rarities.

This is a CASH only event with 100% of that cash going directly to the Charity. All featured beers and raffles will be CASH ONLY!

We raised $12,000.00 for this Charity during our Cantillon Zwanze Day in September & we want to raise at least another $8,000.00 with this event. Please come out and support this very worth Charity. And bring lots of CASH with you. We’ll also be accepting additional donations.
