New Orleans Brews Up Support for Camp Fire Victims

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.

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.

Other Louisiana breweries joining in brewing the Resilience IPA include Abita, Tin Roof Brewing Company, and Bayou Teche Brewing.
