On a trip to Germany this spring, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. finalized its inaugural partner, Augsburg’s Brauhaus Riegele (among Germany’s oldest family-owned breweries), for a brand new Oktoberfest beer. Released each fall starting in 2015, the collaborative seasonal will feature a different German brewery every year.
The partnership blends centuries of brewing tradition with modern spirit, the company says.
Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest is a traditional German beer with a modern spirit. Expertly crafted with traditional techniques and ingredients, this authentic Oktoberfest lager has a deep golden color, a delicate hop note and rich malt complexity from the use of traditional German Steffi barley.
