CHAMBER CHATTER: Barons Market event will raise money for local schools

When and how do beer and back rooms help local students and schools achieve their goals?

Proceeds from the Alpine Barons Market Backroom Beer Paring will benefit local schools.

For the first time 100 percent of the proceeds from an Alpine Barons Market Backroom Beer Pairing will go to Alpine el­ementary schools/PTAs!

The beer pairing is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 30, at the market in the Alpine Creek Town Center at 1347 Tav­ern Road.

Alpine Barons Manager Bob Ring, Vice Chair of the Alpine Chamber of Commerce, said all the proceeds that evening will go to the Alpine Education Foundation, which helps local schools.

The Alpine market typically does four beer pairings a year, turning its outdoor loading dock into a casual bistro for each eve­ning. Proceeds typically go to regional charities.

“This is the first time we’ve been able to donate locally,” Ring said. “If we have a great turnout, this is our opportunity to keep more money in Alpine and show how we’re supporting the local community.”

The fund raiser will feature “big game bites” with Refuge Brewery beer.

Tickets are $15 each and avail­able at
