This fall, shelves across the United States will see Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest in bottles. If you know anything about Sierra Nevada, then you probably know there is much more to the story than just a well made festbier.
Starting in August and changing each release, Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest will be a collaboration with a German brewery. First up is Brauhaus Riegele from Augsburg, Germany. Active since 1386, the brewery is run by Master Brewer Dr. Sebastian Priller-Riegele and his son Sebastian Priller-Riegele (very much like the Grossmans of Sierra Nevada).
“We’re honored that Brauhaus Riegele, a real cornerstone of German craft brewing, is kicking off this Oktoberfest collaboration with us,” said Ken Grossman, Sierra Nevada’s founder. “We’re both family owned, our children are hands on, and we share a passion for great beer. We’re aligned in so many ways, and we’re excited about the outstanding beer that’s emerged.”
Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest, a collaboration with Brauhaus Riegele, will be available in 12 ounce bottles in August, 2015.
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Release: August, 2015
