Backroom Beer Pairing at Barons Market Benefits “Second Chance Dog Rescue”- May 22, 2019

Backroom Beer Pairing at Barons Market – May 22, 2019

  • Barons Market and Second Chance Beer Co. to partner for fundraiser to give rescue animals a second chance 
  • Foodies to gather at seven market locations to raise funds for charities throughout 2019


Neighbors of Barons Market’s seven stores will enjoy delectable bites and brews on patios and stockrooms during a springtime-themed Backroom Beer Pairing on May 22. Barons Market employees will serve up delicious favorites like a mushroom and beef flatbread and spicy fish tacos, complimented by hand-selected brews from Second Chance Beer Co. (an Over the Line Lager in this case).



Barons Market transforms its stock rooms and loading docks into a food and brew speakeasy for the night during its quarterly Backroom Beer Pairings. It donates all its ticket revenue to charity—this time it’s to Second Chance Dog Rescue and Animal Friends of the Valleys. Last year, Barons Market donated more than $25,000 to charity from this initiative.



  • Goat Cheese Crostini + Balsamic Onion Jam paired with Mulligan Amber Ale
  • Barons Thai Coconut Curry Soup paired with Clever Hoppy Name Pale Ale
  • Spicy Fish Tacos paired with Seize the IPA
  • Mushroom & Beef Flatbread + Blue Cheese paired with Over the Line Lager



Second Chance Dog Rescue is one of San Diego’s largest organizations dedicated to saving homeless dogs. Animal Friends of the Valleys promotes humane care of animals through proactive animal services programs. Second Chance Beer Co. is a San Diego-based microbrewery focused on seizing each day, and its products are in Barons’ alcohol selection year-round.



“Our store is at its most lively during our Backroom Beer Pairings,” says Rachel Shemirani, senior vice president of Barons Market. “Between the sold-out tickets and the giving spirit of the events, there’s no better way to spend an early summer evening in San Diego. Our team is comprised of dog-people, too, so the fact that we get to partner with two animal rescues this month is icing on the cake.”


“Each time I attend a Backroom Beer Pairing, I meet a new friend,” says Carmen Ring, Barons Market shopper. “Of course I also leave with a new favorite beer and a grocery cart full of food, but that’s just part of the fun. I love how Barons makes giving back to our community so accessible, too.”

25th Annual Alpine Community Church Rummage Sale – May 10 & 11, 2019

Come shop around and find hidden treasures at Alpine Community Church’s 25th Annual RUMMAGE SALE – East County’s Biggest and Best Rummage Sale EVER! Friday, May 10, 2019 & Saturday, May 11, 2019 from 8am to 3pm at Alpine Community Church (2225 W. Victoria Drive) There will be tons of clothing, toys, kitchenware, linens, jewelry, crafts, shoes, furniture, books, videos, CDs, sporting goods, tools, yard equipment, and MORE! All with great low prices! This sale has a reputation for being the cleanest, most organized rummage sale in the county and draws shoppers from the entire San Diego region.

Church members as well as local Alpine residents save their gently used items and donate to the church, which has been collecting items for the last few months. Starting the week of May 6, members volunteer to inspect, sort and clean all items that have been donated.  All electric items are tested to make sure they are in working order.  Alpine Kiwanis Club members come on Thursday morning and install their tents in the parking lot at 2225 W. Victoria, across from the Women’s Club, and church volunteers then move all items out and organize them for the sale that begins at 8am on Friday morning.

Many Alpine residents look forward to this Rummage Sale, because of the bargains that await them.  Organizer Donna Boyer states, “We begin pricing items early in the week.  Prices are set low – the goal is to sell all that we have collected and we set prices so items will sell quickly”.  Trustee Vern Sonksen explains, “The Rummage Sale is our biggest fundraiser of the year.  While the money helps the church budget, we also hope that it will benefit the Alpine community.”

Members of the church are also available to pick up any items that people in the community would like to donate.  The church does not accept used computer equipment, old console televisions, nor do they accept used recliners.  According to Sonksen, “these items don’t sell and are very difficult for us to move around on sale days.”

Donations are welcome! For more information call 619-445-2110 or visit our website at  For pickups, call Tom at 619-885-8063.
