Local breweries raise money for California wildfire victims

Local breweries are using a recipe to brew a beer to help those impacted by the California wildfires.

Consider it a GoFundMe campaign. but with hops and barley. Like most of us Kevin and Melissa Walter with Philly's Love City Brewing watched as wildfires burned much of California last month. Days later, came the call

"When a community member is suffering and needs help we want to do what we can to help them," Melissa explained.

Help in the form of beer.

"We make beer that's what we do." California beer maker Sierra Nevada invited brewers from around the country and gave them the recipe to to brew Resilience IPA.

Love City Brewery hosted 8 other Philly-area brewers to produce 40 kegs of the special brew.

100% of the proceeds will go towards fire victims in California.

"It's very collaborative. I would say everyone wants to help each other," owner of Brewery ARS Andy Arsenault said.

Brewery ARS in South Philly is another of one of 1,600 brewers across the country who are making the same beer for the same cause. They say if they were in the same position their brewing family would be doing the same.
