Hudson Valley Craft Breweries Donate To Worthy Cause
Parts of the state of California were recently devastated by deadly fires that scorched over one hundred thousand acres, and killed at least 88 people.
Many from around the country have come together to help those who lost everything. Now the craft beer industry is collaborating, including three from the Hudson Valley.
UpstateNY.com is reporting that both Chatham Brewing and Elmford's Captain Lawrence Brewing Company are participating with Chico, California's Sierra Nevada to brew a new beer called the Resilience Butte County IPA. The two Hudson Valley breweries are part of a group of around twenty breweries representing New York state, and over one thousand from across the U.S.
CNN says that one hundred percent of all the proceeds will go to the Camp Fire Relief Fund. Sierra Nevada stared brewing the beer Tuesday, and will share the recipe with all the other breweries to brew on their own.
Chico, California is located very close to Paradise, the town that was sadly wiped off the map by the Camp Fire in November.
CNN says the beer should be available by December 17.
