The Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest release party at the Steinhaus in Portland is this coming Wednesday, August 5, at 5pm. The Steinhaus is the awesome new German-inspired beer bar by the owners of Roscoe’s on SE 82nd near Division. The brand new Oktoberfest is a collaboration with one of Germany’s oldest and most well-respected breweries –Brauhaus Riegele (pronounced Ree-ga-la). Brauhaus Riegele is located in the heart of Bavaria, where roughly 30 different kinds of craft beers are brewed.
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, giving craft drinkers the ultimate Oktoberfest, a Bavarian festival beer unlike any they’ve experienced in the US.
This Oktoberfest lager is deep golden in color with a delicate hop note and rich malt flavor from the use of traditional German Steffi barley.
The Sierra Nevada and Brauhaus Riegele collaboration Oktoberfest will hit retail shelves in August. It will only be distributed in North America, although Brauhaus Riegele fans in Germany need not worry. The two breweries are collaborating on a separate barrel-aged beer to be brewed and aged on site at Brauhaus Riegele’s traditional Bavarian sudhaus.
Family owned like Sierra Nevada, Brauhaus Riegele of Augsburg has brewed excellent craft beers since 1386 and more than 600 years later, its innovation earns accolades including 2015 Craft Brewer of the year at Meininger International Craft Beer Awards. Just as Sierra Nevada’s Ken and Brian Grossman lead as a father-son team, Brauhaus Riegele has a father-son duo at the helm. Its 27th generation Master Brewer Dr. Sebastian Priller-Riegele, works alongside his son Sebastian Priller-Riegele a World Champion Beer Sommelier, to brew a lineup of beers that together have earned more than 200 awards and medals stateside and abroad.
