Chico-based Sierra Nevada created the IPA and is dedicating 100-percent of the beer’s sales to the Camp Fire Relief Fund. The company also publicly released its recipe for the IPA and asked all U.S. brewers to brew Resilience for the fire relief effort. The response has been significant.
“Our hope is to get Resilience IPA in taprooms all over the country to create a solid start for our community’s future,” said Ken Grossman, Sierra Nevada’s founder.
East Brother Beer Co. joined the call. On Tuesday, the brewery at 1001 Canal Blvd. in Richmond brewed Resilience. It was a special brew for East Brother Beer’s taproom manager, Steven Phillips, a graduate of Butte College.
“When released in about 2-3 weeks across the country, we will have this special edition beer on draft in the taproom with 100-percent of the proceeds going to the Butte County Camp Fire Relief,” according to the East Brother Beer Co. Facebook post, adding, “we’re honored to be a part of it.”
