Black Cloister to raise money for victims of CA forest fires

TOLEDO (WTOL) - The Black Cloister Brewing Company is teaming up with local firefighters to raise money for victims of California’s forest fires.

Sierra Nevada, located in Chico, California, has challenged breweries throughout the United States to assist victims who have lost everything in California’s Camp Fire, one of the most destructive forest fires in history.

The Black Cloister is joining 1,400 other breweries nationwide to support this cause by brewing the “Resilience Butte County Proud IPA.”

For every glass of Resilience sold, 100 percent of the funds will go directly back to a charity designated by Sierra Nevada that will help residents affected by the Camp Fire.

Black Cloister is doubling down on this challenge by including firefighters from at least six departments in Lucas and Wood County in the brewing process of this new beer, which will begin on Tuesday morning.

Resilience will be tapped on December 31, and will be sold until the keg runs dry.

The limited-time beer is an India Pale Ale, clocking in with an ABV of 6.8 percent.

All you have to do is show up, and buy a pint. However, if you would like to do even more to help the cause, you can donate to Sierra Nevada’s Camp Fire Relief Fund.
