Salinas, CA, August 02, 2017 — The Salinas Valley Chamber of Commerce celebrates its 99th anniversary with a festive new event, “99 Years of ChamBEER on the Wall,” in September 2017. (The calendar even cooperated with us as the event takes places on 9/9.)

Paul Farmer, President and CEO of the Salinas Valley Chamber of Commerce shared, “When we were considering how to celebrate the Chamber’s 99th year, ’99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall’ jumped out from among the other event ideas and said ‘Pick me!’ We immediately recognized an Oktoberfest-themed event as the perfect reason to invite the community out to see the remarkable facilities of our member Alvarado Street Brewery. We’re delighted that our friends at 1st Capital Bank have signed on as our Presenting Sponsor for this event. They will also be the Presenting Sponsor for what we dream up for our 100th anniversary celebration next year.”
