It’s been a little while since we have had Left Hand Brewing behind the tasting bar. They are probably most famous for their introduction, in 2011, of Milk Stout Nitro in bottle. Left Hand is both the first American and the first craft brewery to master the science of bottling a Nitrogen beer without a widget. Two years later, they expanded the bottled Nitro series with Sawtooth Nitro and Wake Up Dead Nitro. Now, Milk Stout Nitro is available in special pint cans! Today, they are one of the country’s top craft brewers with dozens of Great American Beer Festival medals, 11 World Beer Cup awards, and 9 European Beer Star awards. They are committed to the people of their community, the environment, and are an employee owned/ESOP structured organization. Come out and try some of their fun beers …

  • Travelin’ Light Kolsch: A golden, crisp, dry, and refreshing ale brewed with Pale 2-Row, Vienna, and Acidulated malt and hopped with a mix of Willamette and Mount hood for a herbal hop hit. 4.8% ABV, 22 IBU
  • Extrovert IPA: “A hoppy attitude and a mouthful of dynamic flavors give this IPA a big personality. Assertive, fruit-forward hops with aromas of orange blossom and pineapple mingle with flavors of wet pine and sweet malt with a dry finish.” Brewed with 2-row, Rye, Wheat, Caramunich III, Acidulated, and Carafoam malts and using Equinox, Comet, and Cascade hops. 7.1% ABV, 75 IBU
  • Bittersweet Nitro: “Bittersweet stout is made smooth and even creamier with the help of tiny nitrogen bubbles that are released when you poured hard. The coffee’s dark cherry flavors and spicy undertones weave into the rich, imperial milk stout like a chocolate-covered espresso bean melting on your tongue. Bitter then sweet. Sweet then bitter.” 8.9% ABV, 54 IBUleft hand
