Beer company to make hand sanitizer

ALPENA, Mich – When you think of beer most would pair it with burgers, pizza, or even peanuts but probably not hand sanitizer. but see how one local beer company is branching out.

Earlier this month Alpena Lions Club applied for a ten-thousand dollar grant through the Lions Club International.

The request was granted allowing the club to work with Austin Brothers Beer Company to produce hand sanitizer.

The sanitizer will be given to healthcare facilities, area EMS units, and other entities who fall within LCI grant guidelines.

Deputy Fire Chief Rob Edmonds of the Alpena Fire Department was presented with the first gallons of hand sanitizer last week.
