Longtime craft brewery Sierra Nevada announced that it will be brewing a new beer, Resilience Butte County IPA, with 100 percent of sales going to the Camp Fire Relief Fund. That fund will distribute money to the many organizations that are rebuilding Northern California communities affected by the recent Camp Fire.
Sierra Nevada isn’t limiting the beer to itself, though. Founder Ken Grossman is inviting brewers across the country to brew Resilience, with Sierra Nevada donating the supplies and local breweries donating the proceeds. As of 2 p.m. PT on November 28, over 1,000 breweries had already signed up to brew Resilience, including at least 17 Chicagoland breweries. That list includes Dovetail Brewery, who took to Twitter to explain why they went back on their “No IPA” stance.
Sierra Nevada says that the beer will be available in late December, but I’d encourage you to check in with your local brewery to see when they’ll be tapping! See a constantly updating list here.
