What's Hoppin' this Week? 12/19

Hey and welcome to a Christmas week edition of WHTW. There are plenty of events this weekend to enjoy a few cups of good cheer, so to speak. Just a quick programming note, this will likely be the last What's Hoppin' post of the year since I will be out of town next week, but if you follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, I will do my best to re-post events as I see them, especially anything that may be happening on New Years Eve. I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and happy holidays, thanks for reading. Cheers!

Resilience IPA Releases

As many of you probably have heard, after the devastating wildfires in Northern California, Sierra Nevada Brewing, located in Chico, CA developed and brewed a special IPA with 100% of the sales of this beer being donated to fire relief efforts in Butte County. They also put out the call to craft breweries world wide to take their recipe, brew the same beer, and donate their sales as well. Well over 1,400 breweries decided to help them out, not to mention suppliers, wholesalers and retailers who have also all agreed to either donate goods or any money received as part of making this beer. It's a pretty amazing thing. Several local breweries have produced Resilience IPA and are beginning to put it out in their taprooms. Here is the list of dates each brewery is planning on releasing their version. Please stop by any of these breweries and grab a pint for a great cause:

- 12 String Brewing (Spokane Valley)

- Big Barn Brewing (Mead)
- Paradise Creek Brewing (Pullman)
- Riverport Brewing (Clarkston)
- Humble Abode Brewing (North Spokane)

- Iron Goat Brewing (Downtown Spokane)

- Hunga Dunga Brewing (Moscow) hast not set an official release date that I have seen but expected it to be ready right around this week.
