You can drink beer to help the wildfire relief efforts in Northern California

December 5, 2018

The Camp Fire wildfire that devastated Northern California this month is “considered the deadliest and most destructive in California history,” according to the San Francisco Chronicle, leaving at least 88 people dead and 13,972 homes destroyed. Many volunteers, organizations, and companies have stepped up to help with the relief efforts. Ken Grossman, founder of Chico, Calif.-based brewery Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, posted a letter to the brewery’s website announcing its new “Resilience Butte County Proud IPA.”

We've said it before and we'll say it again: there's nothing quite like the brewing community. Since sending out the bat-signal for joining the Camp Fire relief effort, HUNDREDS of breweries have reached out saying "sign us up." If you are a brewer and would like to join us by brewing Resilience Butte County Proud IPA and donating all sales to the Camp Fire Relief Fund, just follow the link in our profile. We'll get you posters, coasters, tap handles and raw ingredient donations whenever possible. THANK YOU to our wonderful brewing community! And an especially big thank you to our buddies at @resiliencebrewing for letting us use the name - you guys rock. #ResilienceIPA #ButteCountyProud #ButteStrong
