TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. - Three breweries in Michigan are teaming up with Sierra Nevada Brewery to sell Resilience Butte Strong IPA.
Sierra Nevada Brewery whipped up the recipe to raise money for those affected by the deadly Camp Fire and spread the word across the country to see if other breweries wanted to participate in the fundraising.
In Traverse City, MI, three breweries have decided to sell the IPA to fundraise for victims of the Camp Fire. Monkey First Brewing, Rare Bird Brew Pub, and the Filling Station Microbrewery are participating.
"I know it's yeah far away but I think it's great, the brewing community always comes together and tries to help out however we can," said Tina Schuett, co-owner of Rare Bird Brew Pub.
They all speak of a sort of comradery among breweries, and their want to help out victims even from across the country.
"We love to help out different communities in need," said Andy Largent, owner of the Filling Station Microbrewery. "The brewing industry is very collaborative and we all want to help each other out, we all want to help build community not just in town but throughout the nation."
The breweries say that they are donating all of the profits of those particular beers to wildfire survivors.
