Sierra Nevada releases fundraising beer for Ukraine humanitarian aid

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. has joined the resistance in Ukraine. As part of a worldwide fundraising effort organized by Drinkers for Ukraine, the brewery released RESIST, an “anti-imperial” IPA, and will donate all profits from its sale to Red Cross humanitarian relief efforts as the country continues to suffer losses due to the Russian invasion.

The beer is available on tap now in the Chico brewery’s pub, and eight-packs of 16-ounce cans can be pre-ordered online at (shipments go out in early summer).

Breweries from around the globe have joined the cause. Using a recipe created by Ukranian brewers—or a modified version of the recipe, as Sierra Nevada has done—the beer-makers so far have raised 65,000 euros, or roughly $70,000, according to Drinkers for Ukraine’s Facebook page.
