Yes, we said would be compiling all the Russian River Pliny the Younger coverage in the previous post, and we will, but this event being held at Monk’s Cafe on Monday, March 5th is too big to not give its own post.
Direct from the email:
It’s time for another Monk’s Mad Monday (Monday, March 5th 2012)
This is our annual Russian River Pliny the Younger event
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Fundraiser
Please Bring Plenty of Cash
Once again, we are raising money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Fergie & I are paying for the keg of Younger ($410) and are donating 100% of the sales of Pliney the Younger to this charity. We were lucky enough to get a half keg this year instead of the usual sixth keg. That means instead of having 640 ounces of beer to raise money for this cancer charity, we will have 1984 ounces. We will raise over $3,000 from the keg of Pliney the Younger, but we want more from you.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 &
we need your help to reach that goal
We will be pouring on draft:
1. Russian River Blind Pig
2. Russian River Consecration
3. Russian River Damnation
4. Russian River Pliney the Elder
5. Russian River Pliney the Younger – CASH ONLY!
6. Russian River Supplication
Now back to the fundraising aspect of the event:
We will be pouring 6 ounce glasses of Younger for $10 CASH ONLY -100% of which goes to the charity. We will raise over $3,000 from this beer alone.
We will also donate 10% of our sales of all other Russian River beers. We need your help to reach our goal of $10,000. Please come out to support Alex’s Lemonade Stand and enjoy great beer while doing just that.
One More Treat:
A friend is bringing a keg of New Belgium La Folie as a BYOB and will be pouring from a picinic tap. He is requesting a $10 cash donation for a glass – again 100% of which will go to this charity. CASH ONLY!
4 separate raffles.
