New Belgium Brewery Luncheon   Tuesday, September 01, 2015     Noon     $75

Please join us as Philadelphia welcomes New Belgium Brewery. Brewmaster Peter Bouckaert will be on hand to discuss his barrel aging program, yeast management & the team of sensory analysts, which blend the beers.

   We have been hosting all of our events in the Back Room so they are both intimate and informative. It's all about the educational component for us.  This event is held in the back room, tickets are limited to 25 inquisitive guests.

I just got the list of beers NBB is sending for our event. It is unbelievable.

Cantillon Zwanze Day   Saturday, September 19, 2015     11:30AM     CASH BAR

Each year, Jean Van Roy of Cantillon, brews a special, one-off lambic to share with friends. He calls it his Zwanze. A very limited number of kegs make to North American – last year it was less than 25 kegs for the entire continent. 

We are honored to be included with this select group of the world’s greatest beer bars/restaurants to be pour this extremely rare beer.  As always, we use this event to raise money for charity. Once again we will be raising money for the Fair Food stand at the Reading Terminal Market. We raised nearly $5,000 last year and I have set a goal of $10,000 for this year's donation. C'mon Philly, help us reach our goal.

We will have a kick ass selection of draft beer for this event with 100% of the draft sales going directly to the Charity. We will aslo donate 100% of the Zwanze tshirt sales - again, CASH ONLY! I don't have a final cost for the tshirts, but expect to pay $20-$25 with all of it going to charity.  Accordingly, this will be a CASH ONLY event. All beer sales will be CASH ONLY.  We don’t want to pay the credit card/debit card fees on top of our charitable donation. Seems fair to me. I’ll post the draft list soon.  I'm also putting together a rare beer raffle or two for this event (100% of the ticket sales go to the charity). The draft beer starts flowing at 11:30AM, except for the Zwanze which will be tapped at 3PM. It's sort of a world wide simultap. Remember this is CASH ONLY!

POPE-POURRI   Sunday, September 27, 2015     All Day     Cash Bar

Join us for a miraculous line-up of Saintly beer to celebrate that Guy In The Funny Hat’s stay in Philly.  That’s right…we’re talking about the Pope. We are going to honor the Papal visit the Monk’s way-by serving 14 religious themed beers on tap.

Monk’s Café will be serving these beers on both Saturday and Sunday. We’ll have only one keg of each of the rarities, so the earlier your visit, the better chance you have for “Mass” consumption. And you don’t have to kiss anyone’s ring.
