Ultimate 6er | Brewers of Sierra Nevada’s Camp Fire Relief IPA

Ultimate 6er | Brewers of Sierra Nevada’s Camp Fire Relief IPA

The devastation of the Camp Fire in Butte County, California has reached unmeasurable levels. The fire is now the deadliest and most destructive in California’s history. The need for support for those who have been left with nothing is essential. In dire times, though, the generosity of the craft beer community is a level of support to be reckoned with and this situation is no different.

Last week prior to Thanksgiving, Sierra Nevada sent out the call to the craft brewing community to help give back to those in need. Sierra Nevada launched a campaign to brew a beer for relief: Resilience Butte County Proud IPA. Sierra Nevada will be donating 100% of the proceeds to the relief effort for the fires that have raged across California to help those who have lost everything. Sierra Nevada sent out an invitation to other brewers to join the cause, and once the beacon for help was sent out to craft breweries across the United States, a movement of grand brewing proportions was created.

As of this week, over 1000 breweries from across the nation have signed on to participate in brewing the West Coast-style IPA and donating profits to supporting fire relief efforts. Malt, hop, and yeast suppliers provided raw ingredient donations to every brewery that participated in the effort and Sierra Nevada provided the recipe. The goal is to get Resilience IPA into every taproom across the country. Sierra Nevada is hoping to release the 6.7% ABV IPA on December 22nd in both cans and kegs.

Below is just a highlight of the massive turnout from our craft beer community. #ResilienceIPA


Resilience Butte County Proud IPA | Sierra Nevada Brewery

The Founders. The Pioneers. Sierra Nevada started a movement of epic proportions and the response has been outstanding. Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. went from living in the midst of the chaos to helping to repair what has been lost. On top of the creation of the Resilience IPA, they have set up the Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief Fund and have placed $100,000 of their own money to get the fund moving. The money from the fund will be distributed to organizations working to rebuild and support the local community. You are an inspiration, Sierra Nevada, and we applaud your good deed for the local community.


Resilience Butte County Proud IPA | Saucy Brew Works

Saucy Brew Works of Cleveland, OH was quick to answer the call for help by Sierra Nevada. Saucy Brew Works is no stranger to giving. They will be pairing up with Bank of England Mortgage for their very first Toy Drive this year. Starting on November 15th, Saucy Brew Works was asking for donations of unwrapped toys to help benefit Breakthrough Schools in Northeast Ohio.


Resilience Butte County Proud IPA | St. Boniface Craft Brewing Co.

St. Boniface Brewing Company of Ephrata, PA will be joining forces with other local Pennsylvania breweries to help collaborate for the cause. Representatives from Funk Brewing, Bube’s Brewing, Twisted Bine, Cox Brewing Co., and over 11 more breweries will be meeting at St. Boniface’s brewery to create their very own batch of Resilience IPA. Approximately 15 31-gallon barrels of the West Coast-style IPA will be brewed.


Resilience Butte County Proud IPA | Wachusett Brewing Co.

Wachusett Brewing is joining forces with other local companies to create their very own Massachusetts version of Resilience IPA. With the help of Stone Path Malt and Four Star Farms, Wachusett will be sourcing local resources to personalize their batch of West Coast-style IPA with a bit of Massachusetts flair.


Resilience Butte County Proud IPA | Wren House Brewing Co.

Wren House Brewing is bringing their Arizona roots to Sierra Nevada’s brewing effort. Voted Best Brewery of Phoenix 2018, Wren House was excited to jump on board to help the effort. In this time of need, breweries like Wren House understand how important it is to give to the effort. In addition to starting the Resilience IPA movement, Sierra Nevada also reopened their doors to offer meals to first responders and members in the community in need of a good meal.


Resilience Butte County Proud IPA | 4 by 4 Brewing Co.

Another collaboration is in the works for the Giving Tuesday brew. Six breweries in Springfield, MO gathered on November 27th at Springfield Brewing Co. to help brew Sierra Nevada’s recipe. Participating brewers include 4 By 4 Brewing, Lost Signal Brewing Co., White River Brewing Co., Tie & Timber Beer Co., and Mother’s Brewing Co. A Springfield-based brewing equipment manufacturer, Paul Mueller Co., will be matching the funds raised for the wildfire victims up to $2,500 and will also donate a MiniPub Serving Tank to distribute the beer.
