Two New Orleans breweries are joining with over 1,000 others across the country to produce the Resilience Butte County Proud IPA, with 100% of the proceeds going to Camp Fire relief efforts.
NOLA Brewing Co. and Urban South Brewery are two popular Tchoupitoulas breweries who are participating in the growing relief effort started by the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company on Giving Tuesday. Sierra Nevada is located in Chico, just west of the town of Paradise, which was utterly devastated by the Camp Fire earlier this month.

There was no doubt we were ready to jump in and do what we can to brew and fundraise for the @sierranevada #CampFireReliefFund when they reached out, but we are psyched we will be making it a team event with our buddies from @atgbrewery here at NOLA Brewing! We are hoping to have an impactful Resilience brewday on November 27 as brewers around the nation brew the Resilience Boutte County Proud IPA so we can donate 100% of sales to those in desperate need of relief!
We are excited to be participating in the Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief Fund by brewing Resilience IPA. Stay tuned for more information about the release! #ResilienceIPA #ButteStrong pic.twitter.com/WssdPQnc0D

The now-contained Camp Fire destroyed more than 153,000 acres and resulted in at least 88 deaths, making it the most destructive and deadly wildfire in California history. To make matters worse, parts of Butte County, where the fire occurred, are now being evacuated due to flash flooding.
