For descriptions of each beer, according to a press release sent by Left Hand, please continue reading:
Chai Milk Stout Nitro – A custom blend of cloves, ginger and intensely flavored spices are smoothed out by the sweetness of our infamous Milk Stout and nitrogen cascade … right from the can. This beer was first brewed for our annual Nitro Fest event this past November. It was such a favorite, we decided to share it with all of our nitro-loving beer fans as the newest beer in our nitro can series. The chai spice mixture is brewed in-house and gives the whole brewery an intoxicating aroma on brew day.
Well Played – Left Hand’s red IPA returns with a new experimental hop. Experimental hops are small plots of hops that are sent out to select breweries. A group of our brewers together selected our 2018 hop. The hop chosen is BRU-1 by Haas from Yakima, WA.
Saison au Miel – Les Quatres Saisons, Left Hand’s quarterly Saison series returns with Saison au Miel. Brewed with native Colorado ingredients, each beer in the collection will highlight a unique addition. Saison au Miel features wildflower honey to bring a touch of sweetness to soften the dry and crisp farmhouse-style ale. The Colorado wildflower honey sourced from 5th generation Johnson Family Farm in Northern Colorado.
Left Hand IPA – The newest year round beer is pale orange, with a light maltiness. It is brewed with Azacca, Galaxy, and Citra hops. Galaxy is Director of Brewing, Matt “Truck” Thrall’s favorite hop and the combination of hops provides flavors and aromas of orange, passionfruit, peach and lemon.
