Three breweries in Appleton are selling a beer on tap called the Resilience IPA, with all proceeds from sales going to the victims and first responders who lost everything in the California Camp Fire.
The three participating breweries are Stone Arch Brewpub, McFleshman’s Brewing Company, and the Appleton Beer Factory.
The idea came from the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company based in Chico, California, in Butte County where the Camp Fire claimed dozens of lives. Sierra Nevada asked craft breweries all across America to brew the Resilience IPA recipe and sell it to customers, with 100% of proceeds benefiting Camp Fire victims and first responders.
The Resilience IPA recipe was brewed at Stone Arch Brewpub. Thirty kegs were distributed to the three Appleton breweries.
“Oh my gosh, this is the most rewarding part of what we do,” Bobby Fleshman, owner of McFleshman’s Brewing Company, said. “This is why we do it. We want to be the community cornerstone and this is the perfect way to do that.”
The three breweries are selling the Resilience IPA starting Thursday, and plan to sell it until it runs out.
