New Beer Blog Sierra Nevada Brauhaus Riegele Oktoberfest


In this fall beer blog, we are going to get into the new fall seasonal from Sierra Nevada Brewery.  It is their Oktoberfest.  It is brewed with Brauhaus Riegele.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on Sierra Nevada Brewery, you know the history of this west coast craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know Sierra Nevada.  Brauhaus Riegele was founded in 1386.  It is one of the oldest brewery in Germany.  Let us get into this fall beer.

It has a clear golden color with a white constant head on this fall beer. The aroma has a light malty notes. It is hard to pick up. The taste has a malty notes that finish slightly sweet for the aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable.

Here is a description from beer bottle:

We partnered with one of Germany’s oldest breweries – Brauhaus Riegele – to create a true festival beer unlike any other brewed in the USA.  Using traditional techniques and ingredients, we’re bringing the style back to its authentic roots with a deep golden color, delicate hop note and rich malt complexity.

Here is a description from their website (

“How Sierra Nevada Made the World’s Best Oktoberfest”

We’re on a mission to explore the roots of Germany’s festival beers. Each year, we’ll partner with one of a handful of incredible German brewers to create a traditional take on the most famous beer style in history. This year we’re working hand in hand with Brauhaus Riegele of Augsburg. Together we created an authentic Oktoberfest beer, true to the roots of the festival, that’s deep golden in color and rich with complex malt flavor from the use of traditional German Steffi barley.

In the end, I was pretty excited to see Sierra Nevada making Okotberfest.  I thought it was one from the Fall Sampler from last years.  This is a brand new brew beer for this fall.  The one from last year was their brewpub only Oktoberfest.  I will be honest.  I was not a really a huge fan of this years at first.  I believe it was because I was hoping to get the one that I had from last year.  I have to say it really grew on me.  I have been picking it up and sharing it with friends.  I have to say that my friends are loving it. I love it.  I am having a hard time finding it now because stores are selling out and fast.  I highly recommend this one if you can find it.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/
