In November, the most destructive wildfire in California's history raged through Butte County.
The horrific Camp Fire began Nov. 8 in the Sierra Nevada foothills and wasn't fully contained until Nov. 25. It burned 153,336 acres, destroyed nearly 14,000 residences, killed 86 and displaced numerous people and animals.
During the natural disaster, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. announced plans to brew Resilience Butte County Proud IPA, with 100-percent of sales going to the Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief Fund, focused on rebuilding the community. Then the company invited other breweries in the country to make the beer and donate all of the sales to the relief fund, too.
More than 1,000 breweries did so, and now Monk's Cafe, a Belgium beer bar in Philly, is also getting involved.
On Saturday, Jan. 19, Monk's will throw the Resilience Fundraiser for the Camp Fire Relief Fund. From noon to five p.m., 100-percent of all draft sales will be donated.
There will be 25 beers on draft, including the Resilience Butte County Proud IPA.
The fundraiser will be cash only, since every dollar will go directly to those in California. Monk's goal is to raise $10,000 to support the community rebuilding after the devastating Camp Fire.
