On November 8th, the town of Paradise, CA, was greatly affected by one relentless fire. Over a span of only a few hours - thousands of lives, homes, and businesses were devastated.
Hitting close to home, Sierra Nevada reached out to breweries across the nation help raise money for those impacted by Camp Fire. In order to do so, Sierra Nevada created a beer called the Resilience IPA, shared the recipe and invited participating breweries to brew it, and then sell it at their taprooms with 100% of proceeds going directly to those affected by the fire. Malt and hop suppliers were also able to contribute by covering the cost of raw materials for participating breweries. Through combined efforts from businesses and beer drinkers across the the nation, Sierra Nevada is hoping to raise over $15 million for their Camp Fire Relief Fund.
On Friday, December 14th, four breweries of South Lake Tahoe (Sidellis Brewery, Outpost Brewing Company, Cold Water Brewery and Grill, and South Lake Brewing Company) came together to support the Camp Fire Relief Fund and brewed the Resilience IPA. What better reason to create a collaboration brew than for a great cause. Here in Lake Tahoe, we are no strangers to the devastation of wildfires and were more than willing to participate in crafting this cooperative brew.
South Shore’s version of the Resilience IPA will be release at all four locations on Friday, January 4th. Please join us at any of the four breweries and tasting rooms in supporting the Camp Fire victims.
