    Vienna Lager was excellent stuff, would love to see it back.

    We've brewed it a few times in the past... even won an award or two.
    This one, from the 2010 World Beer Cup, for instance:
    Category 23: German-Style Pilsener, 69 entries
    Gold: Pilsner, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., Chico, CA

    A year-round German Pils (FAR under-appreciated style IMO) in cans from Sierra Nevada!?!?!

    This just made my week.

    But not widely available? I ask because I don't believe I've ever had the good fortune to try it. Yet.

    Is it anything like the WBC winner?

    If you can get Great Lakes products around you, try the Eliot Ness. They label it as an "amber lager" but it's a Vienna. A very, very tasty beer, and it's available year round. (Of course, given your obvious prediliction for lagers, you probably know all about this already -- never mind.)

    Another high quality Vienna Lager is brewed by Devil's Backbone.

    Cheers!

    I see above it is. That was a wonderful German Pils.

    Another big vote for bringing back Vienna Lager.

    I was happy as hell to see Tumbler back this season – even just in mixpack form. Easily one of my top 3 brown ales in the country.

    Get rid of flipside and make it the new fall seasonal, switch flipside to the variety pack. Probably wont happen but that's what I'd like to see.

    That's funny. Friend of mine is bringing some Eliot Ness back from GRap next week.

    Agree with the sentiment of Vienna. The Oktoberfest on the other hand was not so good. They definitely tried something different so I will give them credit for that, but if Vienna was spot on for the style, Oktoberfest was spot-off. But I still love Sierra Nevada all the same.

    Another vote for the Vienna Lager, I loved it! And I've said this in a few threads now but worth repeating here: it would be nice to see Glissade make a comeback and if nothing else, maybe in the spring mixed pack? :grinning:

    Definitely looking forward to the Nooner Pils, I am a huge Pilsner fan and it's one of my go to styles. SN does hoppy beers well but they can clearly do non-hoppy beers well too so I definitely want to see some more from them!

    Not a bad idea at all. Flipside is okay but not different enough from their other beers in my opinion and I'd rather see a solid Lager for a Fall seasonal than yet another IPA in the market.

    I really enjoyed Vienna Lager as well. Really digging the Sierra Nevada variety 12 packs, in general. Keep them coming.
