▶ "We teamed up with Germany’s Bitburger Brewery for an Oktoberfest [...] a festbier [with] rich amber color and smooth malty flavor. We brewed Oktoberfest with Bitburger’s custom yeast and secret hop blend called Siegelhopfen, meaning 'Sealed Hops'—two house ingredients never shared outside their walls until now."

Sierra Nevada's original plant opened in Chico, California, in 1981. It's still open, if much larger and much modernized since then.
