Celebrating over 20 years of brewing a well-balanced portfolio of craft...

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.

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.

This is a great Longmont brewery. My only complaint is that they are very much an anti-dog brewery, which is quite opposite from Boulder county breweries in general.

We were expecting to enjoy the beer and the brew pub but were very disappointed with both. Service was good (bar person exchanged a nitro that I really did not like for something else at no charge). However, I found the room somewhat depressing, the outdoor patio marginal and the beer unremarkable. Left Hand used to have good beer. Not... More

Did the brew tour on the trolley and we stopped here. The place is nice. Good selection of beer. I'm not a beer drinker, but my buddies liked most of their beers.
