ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Thousands of beer makers across the country are coming together for a common cause, including several breweries in the Duke City.
Sierra Nevada Brewing Company is providing the ingredients for a fundraiser beer to help aid the victims of the recent California Camp Fire.
"We do a lot of charitable activities throughout the year, and this was really easy to say, ‘we'd love to brew your beer,’” said John Heine, head brewer at Marble Brewery in Albuquerque.
The charity beer is called “Resilience IPA” and more than 1,400 breweries countywide will have it on tap this week including Marble.
Proceeds will go toward rebuilding after the devastation of the deadliest wildfire in California history. Representatives at Sierra Nevada said they hope to raise north of $10 million for the cause.
"Sierra Nevada put it out and put out a call to brewers and it was phenomenal the response," Heine said.
The opportunity to help the victims of the fire, by buying pints of “Resilience IPA,” will last as long as the batch does. Heine predicts the batch will last a couple of days.
