For the month of October, the fine folks over at Barrel of Monks Brewing in Boca Raton are supporting a charity the breast way they can: brewing up a beer.
The Belgian-inspired brewery have created a Belgian Wit with Raspberries and Beets, which ends up coloring it pink, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month. The beer is, aptly put, called 'Witty in Pink'.
Teaming up with local charity Go Pink!, the brewery will be releasing a limited number of bottles of Witty in Pink, 250 of them I'm told, with 100% of the proceeds from the sales donated to Go Pink Challenge, and a percentage of the draft sales through the tasting room in the month of October will be donated as well. It's all to benefit the Boca Raton Regional Hospital Christine E Lynn Women’s Health and Wellness Institute.
“Breast Cancer is something that has affected many of us, and it is important to us to work alongside a local charity to do our best to help our local community in Boca Raton, and South Florida. We are honored to be working with Go Pink!” said Phil Palmisano, Marketing and Branding Manager for Barrel of Monks.
Beyond the bottle release, other events are being scheduled for the month as a way to bring more awareness and dollars to the cause. Those events will likely come up on a week by week basis, so keep an eye on their social media (especially their Facebook page) to keep up with the brewery.
Barrel of Monks Brewing is located at 1141 S Rogers Cir #5, Boca Raton. Call 561-510-1253, or visit barrelofmonks.com.
