Several breweries in our state and across the country brew a special beer to serve the victims of the camp help Wildfire in Northern California. In about two weeks, you can raise a pint to show your support.
At Lucky Envelope Brewing in Ballard, they brew about 15 barrels, equivalent to about 500 gallons of special beer called "Resilience IPA" – all for a good cause.
Lucky Envelope is one of many breweries that call for help
"This industry is heavily dependent on the community," said Raymond Kwan, Operations Manager at Lucky Brewing. [19659004SierraNevadaBrewinginChicokreierteeinspecialesBierwiththename"ResilienceIPA"daallFamilieshadwashedhousesandallwashinourduringcampfireplaces
They sent the recipe to the breweries and asked for help Hundreds have signed up.
"It's phenomenal to bring together over 1,000 brewers to make a beer on such short notice," said Barry Chan, brewmaster and co-founder of Lucky Brewing.
All the sale of this particular beer benefit the reconstruction of the victims.
You are a brewer I really respect, "said Chan.
Lucky Envelope started brewing the beer on Wednesday.
"The beer is still fermenting for a week," Chan said.
The ones in Stoup Brewing are the call to action. They started brewing the Resilience IPA on Saturday.
They say it's a chance to make a difference.
"A tragedy of what's going on – what happened there with the campfire," said Brad Benson, co-owner and brewmaster at Stoup Brewing. "It's really amazing what kind of call the breweries make when someone like Sierra says," Hey, we need help. These people need help. "
Breweries and their loyal customers will hopefully soon be able to raise a pint for a good cause.
" We expect it to sell out quickly, "Kwan said.
Lucky Envelope Brewery says it will be a single batch of Resilience IPA will be ready in the second week of December.
Along with all breweries, hop and grain growers have stepped up to support the fundraiser by donating supplies to the breweries involved in the fundraiser.
