    This is probably the best example of community ever in the brewing industry. Hats off to Sierra Nevada for this...

    Haven’t tried anything locally, but heading to Odell for happy hour today to do my part :beers:

    Love Sierra Nevada! I will gladly buy a 12-pack and a few pints on draft plus a donation.

    I've had two thus far (Fieldwork and Urban Roots) and will sample my 3rd tonight (Sactown Union). Will grab a pour of all the different brewers' batches I come across, and likely a 2nd pour or crowler/growler fill of all the ones I really like. Sierra Nevada and the brewing industry should be very proud of their efforts to assist those impacted by the Camp Fire!

    Sadly the true magnitude of the devastation was brought back to scale in Ken's comments. I really hope that massive, record-breaking, wildfires are not soon to be an annual norm. Cautiously optimistic I'll remain.

    It seems to me like a lot of breweries jumped at the opportunity. Most of them were probably eager to help, but I'll also guess that some of them were looking for some visibility - although in my mind they're forgiven if they're going to follow through and pass the sales on as donations.

    I've only had the Sierra Nevada version so far but I'm looking forward to trying as many other versions as I can find.

    190 trucks a day, just to take the debris away. Jesus. Will be buying as much of this as I can.

    Not to detract from the magnitude of the effort and charity of this effort, as properly lauded in you post, but how have the different breweries' versions differed, if noticeably at all?

    Urban Roots and Sactown Union tasted similarly, and close to Celebration, but perhaps not surprising (they stuck to the recipe and have similar brewhouses). Fieldwork added some Southern Hemisphere varieties dry hopping, which I didn't personally like.

    Even all the way out here to the Oregon Coast. Wolf Tree brewed some and it is very good.

    Had some at Bruery Terreux last night and it was really good. Definetly tastes like a Sierra Nevada recipe. Keeping my eye out at other places now.

    My aunt and uncle lived in Paradise and worked at Sierra Nevada for many years, so this hits close to home.

    Just had my first taste at Hopsaint....excellent beer for a very important cause. Proud to see Sierra Nevada being active in taking a leadership role to give back.

    Fieldwork's version is a hazy juicy version.

    Cellarmaker's version has less malt than the SN recipe (but with oats and rye), and a different hop blend.
