(WTHR) — As evacuation orders are lifted and resident begin to return to northern California after the devastating Camp Fire, breweries across the country are stepping up to help relief efforts.

California-based brewery Sierra Nevada has created a special new brew — aptly named "Resilience Butte County Proud IPA" — to sell and donate 100 percent of the proceeds. They began brewing the recipe on Giving Tuesday, and in an effort to continuing to give back, the company is sharing the recipe with any brewery that wants it and is asking sellers to donate the proceeds.

So far, more than 1,000 breweries around America have joined the effort.

More than 20 Indiana breweries are participating, including local spots like Fountain Square Brewery and Triton Brewing Company. According to Sierra Nevada's website, the special brew will be available in late December.

All sales will go to Sierra Nevada's Camp Fire Relief Fund, which distributes the money raised to its partner organizations dedicated to rebuilding the community. To donate to the Camp Fire Relief Fund, click here.
