Karl Strauss to Release 2 IPAs to Support Wildfire Relief Efforts

SAN DIEGO— Karl Strauss Brewing Company is supporting those affected by the California wildfires currently devastating the brewery’s home state through two charitable beers set to release Friday, Dec. 21 with the proceeds to benefit relief efforts. Karl will also institute an internal Beer it Forward donation system to match employee donations for aid efforts.

On November 27, Karl Strauss Brewing Co. brewed a 7bbl batch of Resilience IPA to support the Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief Fund along with a 7bbl batch of Strauss Relief Brut IPA – an American Brut IPA brewed with a light malt profile along with Cascade, Simcoe, Strata, and Nelson hops to showcase piney aromatics, tropical notes and a clean, super dry finish. Proceeds from Strauss Relief Brut IPA will support the California Fire Foundation, specifically toward those impacted by the LA County fires.

Join Karl on Friday, Dec. 21 at their main brewery and tasting room in Pacific Beach or any of their brewpubs in Southern California to show your support as they tap the two charitable beers. Purchase a pint or offer a donation to help the brewery raise proceeds for both the Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief Fund and the California Fire Foundation.
