Barley Brown’s in Baker City recently joined about 1,400 other breweries in producing a beer that will help California residents who lost their homes in the Camp Fire in November.

The brewers all agreed to make a batch of Resilience Butte County Proud IPA.

The fundraiser was started by Sierra Nevada, a brewery started in Chico, California, near the Camp Fire, which scorched 153,000 acres and destroyed thousands of homes in and near the city of Paradise.

Sierra Nevada invited every brewery in the U.S. to participate in the fundraiser. Nearly 25 percent of the country’s breweries — including approximately 60 in Oregon, including Side A Brewing in La Grande — agreed to make the beer and donate money from sales to the Camp Fire Relief Fund.
