Monrovia Brewery Serving Suds To Benefit Fire Victims

0

MONROVIA, CA – Monrovia Brewery are among hundreds across the country offering a craft brew created to benefit victims affected by the devastating Camp Fire. Pacific Plate Brewing Co. will serve as a Resilience Butte County Proud IPA as part of the nationwide fundraiser. The funds from the sales of the suds will be donated to the Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief Fund.

The “fundraiser beer” was created by those at the Chico-based Sierra Nevada Brewing Company. Many of the employees at the family-owned brewery were affected by the deadly fire and the beer represents their heartache as well as their ability to bounce back while helping their neighbors.

Across the country, more than 1400 breweries have asked to brew and sell Resilience to help give back to the Northern California community struggling to recover. A canned version will also be available in stores nationwide. Click here to find rentals near you.

The Camp Fire began in Butte County on Nov. 8 and quickly spread across 240 square miles, killing at least 85 people and displaced thousands more. Most of Paradise was charred within 24 hours. Nearly 19,000 buildings, mostly homes, were destroyed. It was the nation’s deadliest and most destructive wildfire in a century.
