ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Port City Brewing Company is joining Sierra Nevada Brewing Company and hundreds of other breweries across the country to brew Resilience Butte County Proud IPA in support of relief efforts for those affected by the Camp Fire. Port City will donate 100 percent of sales from the Tasting Room only beer to the campaign.
Beginning on November 8th, the Camp Fire burned across a wide region of northern California, ultimately becoming the most destructive fire in California’s history. To date, the fire has burned over 14,000 residences and claimed 85 lives. In response, Sierra Nevada’s founder Ken Grossman wrote an open letter to American breweries, inviting them to join the Chico, California-based company’s relief campaign. Over a thousand breweries across the country, including Port City, have pledged to brew Resilience Butte County Proud IPA and donate 100 percent of the sales revenue to relief efforts.
“Our hearts go out to everyone whose lives have been upended by the fire,” says Port City founder Bill Butcher. “We’re so proud of Sierra Nevada’s leadership and are honored to join the breweries participating in the relief campaign. It’s a powerful example of the good that our close-knit industry can do for our communities.”
Port City will brew the IPA in early December and announce its tapping on social media and its website. Those interested in making further contributions can donate to Sierra Nevada’s relief fund: www.goldenvalley.bank/Community-Foundation.aspx.
