The Oxford English Dictionary defines resilience as “the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.” Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. in California is taking that to heart, brewing a special Resilience Butte County Proud IPA to benefit victims of the Camp Fire, and nearly four dozen Colorado breweries are joining the effort.

Sierra Nevada brewed Resilience on Giving Tuesday and will give 100 percent of its sales to the Camp Fire Relief Fund. The brewing company is encouraging breweries across the country to brew the special ale. Sierra Nevada is even working with malt, hop and yeast suppliers to provide raw ingredient donations.

The Camp Fire, which started in early November, left at least 85 people dead and burned more than 153,000 acres. It destroyed about 19,000 structures in its path. 

More than 1,000 breweries are signed up. Here is the list of Colorado breweries sorted by region:
