Left Hand Brewing Debuts 2 New Bottled Nitro Beers At GABF
Longmont, CO – Bell. Saw. Skull. – the choice is now here. Two years ago, Left Hand Brewing released the first nitrogenated bottled craft beer without a widget – Milk Stout Nitro. Last night on the opening evening of the Great American Beer Festival, the brewery debuted the next generation in the Left Hand Nitro series: Sawtooth Nitro and Wake Up Dead Nitro.
Following the tremendous success of Milk Stout Nitro, Left Hand has developed two more bottled Nitrogen beers from their popular draft Nitro series. “The inspiration for Milk Stout Nitro came from the desire to have a draught experience at home,” said Chris Lennert, VP of Operations. “The MSN six pack has been a solid success – we had every reason to create a similar offering for Sawtooth Nitro and Wake Up Dead Nitro.” Similar to the classic CO2 originals, Sawtooth Nitro portrays nutty malt flavors balanced by herbal hops while Wake Up Dead Nitro reveals a trifecta of cocoa, dried fruit, & licorice flavors. Pouring hard out of a bottle, all 3 Nitro beers begin with a beautiful cascade and finish with a thick creamy head, crafting a super smooth experience.
Thursday night, the brewery had more to celebrate beyond the Nitro newcomers. With a room full of friends and industry partners, Left Hand’s bash commemorated the brewery’s 20 years of business since their opening in 1993. Attendees got their first taste of Left Hand’s Throwback series featuring Jackman’s Pale Ale, Deep Cover Brown Ale, Munich Dark Lager, Dunkelweiss, and Motherlode Golden Ale. Moreover, the draft lineup also featured all 5 volumes of Fade to Black, the brewery’s acclaimed winter series. Left Hand will distribute all 10 styles to its current markets on draft for a limited time.
Sawtooth Nitro and Wake Up Dead Nitro will be available to the Colorado market only for the remainder of the year. Distribution to additional Left Hand markets will begin in 2014.
