Prost like a pro! Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest
Our Festbier Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest is a refreshing ode to beer’s biggest party. Toasty malts and German hops yield notes of fresh bread and floral, fruity character for a balanced, crisp lager that makes any moment festive.

Turns out, good beer can do a lot of good.
We shook things up in the ’80s, and it helped launch a beer revolution that’s in full force today. We keep pushing boundaries, whether that’s in the brewhouse, with sustainability, or in the great outdoors.
Ken Grossman started Sierra Nevada with a hand-built brewhouse and the odds stacked against him. In 1980, that patchwork of pipes, pumps and tanks began making beers that forever changed the course of American craft brewing. Ken Grossman was a wild card from the get-go. As a toddler, he took things apart faster than his mom could keep up—the toaster, the washer, outlet covers. Tinkering turned into inventing, and learning in school didn’t compare to education in a backyard shop. Ken fell for science, though, thanks to the father of a close friend. Visiting their house, Ken always saw and smelled curious bubbling jugs: homebrew.
Use our interactive maps to explore how we slash our environmental impact at both breweries, from a next-level “reduce, reuse, recycle” mindset to generating alternative energy onsite.
Take Back Our Trails
We believe freedom is in the great outdoors. But trail maintenance is underfunded
while foot traffic keeps growing, and it’s harming our favorite places to play. If we don’t step up, our trails die out. Join us in action and advocacy to take back our trails.
