Celebrating over 20 years of brewing a well-balanced portfolio of craft beers. Left Hand is one of the most honored and recognized breweries in the state, with over 28 Great American Beer Festival medals, 11 World Beer Cup awards, and 9 European Beer Star awards. Famous for their Nitro series, Left Hand Brewing established America’s original Nitro bottle with their popular Milk Stout Nitro.

The Tasting Room offers a wide variety of Left Hand's award-winning series including Year Round, Seasonal, Cask and limited releases. Be sure to ask what's new from the pilot system to try rare releases that may only be available at the brewery. No reservations are necessary to enjoy a few pints in our Tasting Room, either inside the comfortable surroundings or outside on our patios, soaking in the year-round Colorado sunshine. Beer and brewery merchandise are available for purchase during regular Tasting Room hours. Our brewery is also available for special events and group tours by appointment. Please bring your ID. No pets or smoking please.

Love, love, love Left Hand Brewing Company. After 4 years in Germany we were excited to have some stout again. Left Hand NITRO Milk Stout, that is! Friendly staff, always fun!

Left Hand is one of my few favorite beers. I love stouts and porters, and Im so glad we decided to make the drive! We didn't get in on a tour, but we went to try the different beers. My go to is normally Nitro milk stout, but I loved the Sawtooth Nitro! Food trucks is pretty good-the fried cheese... More

It started as a small brewery, grew some huge silos, and Longmont put the bike path on the St. Vrain right alongside the property. All light wood paneling inside, with friendly folks and a food truck right outside to grab something out of the ordinary to take with you and get a beer. Good place to meet a local.

This brewery makes my favorite beer (Nitro Milk Stout) and when we were going to Colorado we added this to our list of places we would like to see. Unfortunately we did not make it in time to attend a brewery tour but we did go to the tasting room. The tasting room, which is like a regular bar that... More

The atmosphere is fun and comfortable, the flights are generous and the beer is just plain great. We're in Longmont for 8 days, we've been twice already and plan at least one more visit before we leave.

Drove to Longmont to visit the Birthplace of Lefthand Beer. Cool small bar with indoor and outdoor seating. Took 45 min. Tour of small warehouse next door where beer is brewed, staff was very friendly and you got to bring your beer along. No free samples or food. Found out later that actual bottling facility is somewhere else. Good beer,... More

Left Hand is a great American entrepreneurial story: Two friends from the Air Force Academy in Colorado decide to open a business, work hard, and achieve unprecedented success! Take the tour, it is charming. Taste the beers in the Tap room, they are great! Speak Italian with Cincia, the owners wife (he got a big Souvenir in Italy) she is... More

Went to the sampling lounge. It was crowded. We were finally served. Was it necessary to ask a 70 year old person to show ID to confirm he was over 21? I understand the law, but give me a break.

The tour guide was genuinely excited about the product and very knowledgeable about the processes. Unlike some of the other brewery tours I took there were NO free samples. I did by a couple different beers from the onsite bar, one to carry along on the 45 minute tour and one while relaxing with my family waiting for the tour.... More

Enjoyed the Left Hand Tap room, tasted several beers and chatted with the bartender who really knew her beers. Enjoyable time with like-minded people.
