Hundreds of Breweries Tell Sierra Nevada “We’re In” on Wildfire Relief Beer

" . . . Sierra Nevada is creating a beer, Resilience IPA, in which every dime from its sales will go back to the people impacted by the Camp Fire. Brewery founder Ken Grossman wrote a letter, asking every brewery in the U.S. to do the same.

'On November 8, the Camp Fire broke out near the town of Paradise, California, and within minutes raged through the community, obliterating a football field per second of everything in its path, destroying nearly 10,000 homes, killing many residents and leveling the town of 27,000 people,' Grossman wrote in his letter. 'Although Chico and the Sierra Nevada brewery were spared, the Camp Fire has devastated neighboring communities where many of our employees lived.'

Sierra will provide the recipe (and more) to breweries who sign on to help.

As of Tuesday morning, about 400 breweries of all sizes have pledged their support. Malt and hop suppliers are also working with Sierra Nevada to help provide some of the raw materials for Resilience IPA. . . "
