Australians and people around the world are by now familiar with the staggering destruction caused by the recent bushfire crisis across NSW, Queensland and Victoria, in particular: several lives lost and thousands impacted, 10 million hectares burnt and potentially one billion animals wiped out.
This has been enough for over 200 breweries around Australia and the world to unite for an initiative called Resilience Beer, a project run by the IBA inviting players in the beer industry to brew a 5% pale ale – using the same recipe – to raise funds for bushfire relief where it’s needed.
Our contribution to Resilience Beer, brewed by our current Byron resident brewer Tina, will be tapped at our Byron Bay Tasting Room and Brisbane brewery on Tuesday 25 February, with all proceeds directed to wildlife rescue and rehabilitation in fire affected areas around the country. People in Byron will also be able to enjoy a schooner of our Resilience Beer in select venues in town.
Join us for a Resilience Beer!
To celebrate the brew and the astounding national and international community response to the Australian bushfires, we’re inviting our communities to enjoy a Resilience Beer at our Byron and Brisbane breweries on Friday 28 February from 4.00–5.00pm, NSW and Queensland times respectively. Every glass of Resilience Beer sold is an important contribution to the ongoing bushfire relief effort. We’d love to see you there!
The Resilience Beer concept was first created by Californian brewery Sierra Nevada in response to the state’s Camp Fire in 2018 and was adopted by over 1,400 North American breweries, who together brewed a Resilience IPA and raised millions in relief funds.
As part of our response to the Australian bushfire crisis, together with Fixation Brewing and Granite Belt Cider Co. – and with huge support from our community – we’re thrilled to have collectively donated and pledged over $71,000 to fire brigades, rural fire services and drought relief across NSW, Queensland and Victoria.
See you on Friday 28 February!
