The Alpine Goat Brewery Brings Beer, BBQ, and Patriotism Together to Support the Troops for their Fourth of July Release Party

WEYERS CAVE, VIRGINIA — First-time Hops for Heroes participant, The Alpine Goat Brewery, is set to bring Homefront beer to Shenandoah Valley on July 4 for an Independence Day release party. The event will feature an early opening, Fat Boyz BBQ, beer specials, a raffle for limited-edition Hops for Heroes merchandise, and their Homefront brew.

The Alpine Goat is one of over a dozen breweries across the country participating in Solders’ Angels’ annual Hops for Heroes campaign. The full list of breweries and additional details about the campaign can be found at

The brewery will open its doors at 12 pm on Thursday, July 4 with Fat Boyz BBQ joining the party at 4 pm. Beer specials and raffles for Hops for Heroes memorabilia such as a tap handle and the baseball bats used to create the Homefront brew will run from open to close.

The annual Hops for Heroes fundraising campaign invites breweries of all sizes to brew a custom beer, Homefront, and donate the proceeds to the national nonprofit Soldiers’ Angels to support active duty Service Members, Reservists, Guardsmen, Veterans, and their families. The organization supported more than 1.3 million Service Members, Veterans, and their family members in 2023 alone, and over the last 20 years, it has sent more than one million care packages to combat-deployed Service Members.
