Another feel good beer story. Stoudt’s Brewing has created “Ex Gratia” benefitting Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF). The foundation began with Alex, a little girl diagnosed with childhood cancer. She created a lemonade stand in her front yard to raise money to give to doctors to help find a cure for children with cancer. One day she made a whopping $2000 dollars. Sadly, Alex lost the fight in 2004 at the age of 8.
The foundation is still active, helping raise money for cancer research. Enter Stoudt’s. Jodi Stoudt teamed up with Osteria in Philadelphia. Osteria provided Lemon marmalade, which Stoudts infused into the brewing of Karnival Kolsch. The result is a light, sweet, lemony beer great for summer, great for the cause.
The kegs will be distributed around Philadelphia. All proceeds be donated to ALSF. A pint will sell for about 8 dollars a glass; each keg raising about $1000 dollars. Check out the video about the beer. Ex Gratia is latin for “Of Favor.” (Love Jodi’s hat she’s wearing in the video BTW.)
