Raise a pint for the Parkway

June 10, 2016

During June, beer fans can show their support for the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation thanks to Appalachian Mountain Brewery’s Pints for Nonprofits Program. For each pint sold, a charity chip is given out. (Request yours at the bar.) Patrons can place the chips in a box for the Foundation to donate 5 percent of their pint purchase to support the nonprofit’s work on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

“We are so grateful for Appalachian Mountain Brewery’s support,” said Carolyn Ward, CEO of the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation. “Their Pints for Nonprofits Program showcases their true commitment to the surrounding community.”

The brewery is also hosting a party from 5 to 7 p.m., Wednesday, June 15, to congratulate Ray Russell of Ray’s Weather on completing a run of the entire Blue Ridge Parkway. Russell began on May 17 at milepost 0 in Waynesboro, Virginia, and finished the trek on June 9 at milepost 469, near Cherokee, North Carolina. Learn more about his journey at www.relaywithray.com.
