Resilence IPA

The Camp Fire in Northern California is one of the most devastating in American history and one that came close to the Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. headquarters in Chico.

In addition to helping with immediate relief efforts, Sierra Neva founder Ken Grossman is creating a special IPA named after the county where the fires took place and donating 100 percent of the sales of the beer to the Camp Fire Relief Fund. 

“We will be brewing Resilience Butte County Proud IPA on Giving Tuesday, November 27, and donating 100-percent of the beer sales to the Camp Fire Relief Fund,” said Grossman in a news release. “We are also asking every brewer in America to brew Resilience and do the same.”


As of Dec. 3, 1,200 breweries across the U.S. are joining the cause including 18 Indiana craft breweries using Sierra Nevada’s recipe for Resilience Butte County Proud IPA. Nationwide the beer will be released on Dec. 17 in cans by Sierra Nevada and on tap at participating breweries.
