Sierra Nevada Brewing is looking for an engaged couple that loves beer as much as they love each other. Of course, they mean that figuratively, but you get the point. The company is currently conducting its first-ever Oktoberfest Wedding contest. Basically, Sierra Nevada will fly the winning couple down to the brewery in Chico, California for an expenses-paid “royal wedding” and party for up to 50 people.
To enter, couples upload a video (one minute or less) making the case for why they’d be the perfect candidates to wed at Sierra Nevada’s 2019 Oktoberfest. Fans will narrow it down to five finalists via social media, and a panel of judges will select the winning couple.
A little beer trivia for you. The celebration that we know as Oktoberfest began back in 1810 as a wedding celebration when Crown Prince Ludwig, who would become King Ludwig I, married Princess Theresa. All of Munich’s townspeople were invited to join the celebration. It became an annual festival and eventually evolved into Oktoberfest.
