2017 European Vacation

By Philly Beer WeekMonday, September 19th

A raffle for craft beer enthusiasts?  For the past several years, PBW founding member Tom Peters of Monk's Cafe has assembled an incredible opportinuty for such people. He puts together a collaboration with his friends in Europe unlike any other: the American collaborators are chosen randomly. 


Philly Beer Week kicks off its annual European Vacation raffle September 20th. Tickets will be sold online as well as at select events through November 17th when our live raffle is held at City Tap House Logan.


What makes this raffle so very special is that when someone buys a ticket, they pick a local brewer from our ballot with whom they would want to brew. The winning ticket pairs the ticket holder with the brewer and the two are off to Europe to craft our official collaboration beer that is sold during Philly Beer Week in June.


This year we will be brewing with De Struise in southern Belgium. Their small pub in Oostvleteren bosts a mind-boggling beer selection.  Tom puts together an itinerary of behind-the-scenes tours, beer dinners, and cultural highlights that no one else could.
