Resilience Butte County Proud IPA will be available at Jones Creek Brewing on Friday January 18th for pints and growler fills to go.
Jones Creek Brewing will be joining more than 1,400 breweries around the world to brew their version of Sierra Nevada Brewing, Resilience Butte County Proud IPA.
Resilience IPA is a collaborative fundraising effort for those impacted by Northern California’s Camp Fire. The Camp Fire, which started in the hills above Sierra Nevada’s Chico brewery in November, was the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California history, killing 86 people and displacing more than 14,000 families, including many Sierra Nevada employees. In the days following the fire, Sierra Nevada announced plans to brew Resilience IPA and donate 100% of the sales to the Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief Fund. The company invited every brewery in the country to brew the beer and donate 100% of the sales to the fund. More than 1,400 breweries rallied alongside Sierra Nevada’s call for help. “The brewing community has really come together in this large-scale fundraising effort,” said Sierra Nevada founder and owner Ken Grossman. “Now we’re asking drinkers to come together and help us raise funds by buying the beer. “
”If the beer sells out, the project could raise more than $15 million for direct Camp Fire relief. Jones Creek Brewing along with many other participating breweries across Washington will serve their versions of Resilience IPA in their own taprooms and pubs and donate the beer sales to the relief fund. “We are so grateful to the breweries, the suppliers, the wholesalers and retailers who have so graciously donated their time and resources to make this happen,” said Grossman. “With their help —and the help of the drinkers everywhere — we’ll be able to make a lasting and impactful difference in the lives of those impacted by this terrible tragedy.”
Owners Tim and Mirinda Moriarty went to high school in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California and know many who have lost family members and homes due to the devastating fires. Jones Creek Brewing will donate 100% of Resilience sales to the Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief Fund to help Butte County rebuild its community.
