The bushfires killed 24 people and burned more than 18,750 square miles of the country.

The pale ale is 5% alcohol by volume was “developed by a working party of brewers to create a beer with broad appeal.”

The group of brewers across Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe expect to raise more than $850,000 for various relief efforts.
