When 8 Degrees Plato Detroit opened in September 2015, the bartenders developed
a habit of putting their loose change from tips into a bucket, most nights saving a
couple of dollars. After a year and a half, it added up to a decent amount. The idea
was to find a worthy cause and do something with this loose change. The staff, led
by Christian Salcedo, looked for and found much more than just a worthy cause.
8 Degrees Plato has partnered with Batch Brewing Company to turn that loose
change into a collaboration beer with a goal of raising over $8500. The funds will
facilitate testing of nearly 20 rape kits.
8 Degrees Plato will be hosting an event on July 15, and will open their doors at 9:00
a.m. with a Yoga and Beer class, followed by brunch, and their first
ever ‘Plato After Dark’ event, clearing off the floor for live music and staying open
until 2:00 a.m. The Batch Brewing Company collaboration ‘Enough Said’ will be for
sale starting at 9:00 a.m.
