Resilience Down Under

Jersey Cyclone Brewing will be participating in the Resilience Down Under effort, along with Sierra Nevada and many other breweries around the world. The goal is to release a beer on the same day all across the world to raise funds for those affected by the wild fires in Australia.

We will be donating 100% of our profits to the CFS Foundation which provides financial assistance to SA Country Fire Service volunteer firefighters and their families who have suffered through death, injury, loss or damage of property while in the line of service. We hope you’ll join us for a pint. For details on how to get involved, head to the link
