Island Brewing Company has joined an historic wave of over 1,000 craft breweries nationwide to brew a collaboration beer to raise money for people affected by the Camp Fire. All participating breweries will brew Butte County Proud Resilience IPA and donate 100 percent of the sales to the Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief fund.
After the devastation of the Camp Fire near its Chico brewing facility, Sierra Nevada reached out to the craft brewing community for fundraising help. “Although Chico and the Sierra Nevada brewery were spared, the Camp Fire has devastated neighboring communities where many of our friends, families and employees live,” said Sierra Nevada founder and owner Ken Grossman. “This community has supported us for 38 years and we’re going to do everything we can to support them back.”
IBC will release its version of Resilience IPA in early January and will have Resilience IPA T-shirts for sale, also benefitting fire victims.
