I was amazed by Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest this year. It is just an amazing beer. The flavors just pop. However, what blew me away about Sierra Nevada's 2020 offering occurred after tasting Weihenstephaner's 2020 Festbier. Sierra Nevada has always produced good, but slightly understated lager. I loved their Maibock before it was called Glissade Pale Bock. However, their Oktoberfest this year takes Sierra Nevada's state of the art lager brewing to a completely different level. Sierra Nevada can hold its own when compared against Weihenstephaner Festbier, which is an amazing beer from one of the masters of lager brewing. It says a lot when an American brewer can hold its own against one of the best in the business.
