Because a loaded smorgasbord on the gridiron here in the States coincides with the first day of the Oktoberfest celebration. More on that in the Six-Pack later. First, we feast on a Week 3 slate that offers as much meat as a platter of Bavarian bratwurst.

WEEK 3 SIX-PACK: Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest
In honor of Oktoberfest, it’s only fitting the Week 3 Six-Pack toast to the beginning of the worldwide celebration. I’ve long had an affinity for marzens.

Sierra Nevada’s Oktoberfest has quickly earned a place in my heart, though, and makes a strong case for the best marzen you will find outside of Munich.
