SAINT JOHN, NB – Moosehead Breweries has announced that its Moosehead Small Batch Brewery is participating in an initiative to support those affected by last November’s devastating Camp Fire in Northern California.
Resilience Butte County Proud IPA was announced in November by Sierra Nevada Brewing as a release to raise funds for the Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief Fund. In addition to brewing it themselves, Sierra Nevada made the recipe publicly available and issued an open letter to all breweries asking them to brew it as well.
While most of the more than 1400 breweries that signed on to participate are based in the United States, several Canadian breweries – including Moosehead – took up the challenge as well.
Moosehead’s version of Resilience is described as follows:
Resilience is a dry hopped IPA with a strong piney and citrus aroma. The flavour from Centennial and Cascade hops blends seamlessly with the sweetness from the malt in this 6.7% ABV and 70 IBU beer.
Resilience will be available by the glass, flight, and growler starting today (February 8th) at the Moosehead Small Batch Brewery. A launch party with live music will be taking place from 6:00 to 9:00 PM.
