Beer Choir helps the less fortunate

RAPID CITY S.D. (KOTA TV) - Keeping the less fortunate warm this winter could be as easy as drinking a beer and singing a song, at least for this group it is.

The Beer Choir held a charity at Hay Camp Brewery, where cash donations and tips were given to the Rapid City Hope Center.

Those who came out also donated coats that will be placed on a rack outside of First Presbyterian church downtown Rapid City, for anyone in need to grab.

While coming together for a good cause people drank, sang beer songs and played games.

"Just trying to make the world a better place, and part of singing together brings a bit of comradery and friendship so that goes along with our values,” said Paul Robinson, Beer Choir chapter leader.

This is the Beer Choir’s first charity, but everyone that entered the brewery was encouraged to grab a song book and join in.

"I think it’s a lot of fun. I love the variety of music they have,” said Kevin Nakajima, Beer Choir participant. “There's some really old songs in there like drunken sailor and they're some really new ones like their theme song."

The Beer Choir will hold their next even on Dec.21 at Hay Camp, called ‘Beer and Carols.’
