Monk’s Raises $4,000 For Alex’s Lemonade

As mentioned here last week, Philly’s shrine to Belgian beer, Monk’s Cafe got its hands on one of the 20 kegs of Russian River’s ultra-rare Pliny the Younger that it intended to pour today as part of a special Mad Monday event, benefiting Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Along with the $15 glasses of Pliny the Younger sold and generous donations from the local restaurant and beer communities, including a $1,000 donation from Vetri partner Jeff Benjamin, Monk’s raised more than $4,000 today that will be donated to the charity to help its mission of fighting pediatric cancer.
