Try this new beer to benefit the California Camp Fire relief effort

Resilience Night is Dec. 20 at your favorite participating brewery, when Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. will raise a glass with the 1,400 plus breweries around the world brewing Resilience Butte County Proud IPA, the fundraiser beer for the California Camp Fire relief effort. 

And every dollar spent on Resilience will benefit those impacted by the Camp Fire, and together, the gaol is to raise more than $10 million to rebuild Butte County.

I was able to taste a version of Resilience IPA this week at New Realm Brewing in Atlanta, one of the many Georgia breweries joining the cause, using a recipe from Sierra Nevada and donated ingredients from suppliers. 

I can tell you, if you like classic West Coast IPA, and you want to help out, go try one near you today or this weekend .

Sierra Nevada and New Realm Resilience Butte County Proud IPA

New Realm Brewing, Atlanta

Available on draft for a limited time, but should be available through the weekend 


A classic West Coast IPA for a cause, breweries around the world are making this beer from a Sierra Nevada recipe as part of the fundraiser for the California Camp Fire relief effort. In Atlanta, New Realm’s version was pulled together by head brewer Tyler Downey. It reminds me a bit of the hop-forward Sierra holiday seasonal, Celebration.

Brewed with crystal malt and Centennial and Cascade hops, it displays a slightly hazy, ruddy color with a strong, off-white head. Right at 7 percent alcohol, it’s a robust ale balanced with plenty of bright hop aromas and flavors, and a smooth bitterness in the finish.

Perfect for simply sipping on a winter evening, try Resilience IPA with a loaded cheeseburger, spicy pizza, fried chicken or grilled salmon.
