1. Left Hand Brewing Company

 

Left Hand Brewing is a Colorado favorite for good reason; they have excellent craft beers, including the legendary Milk Stout (which you will love regardless of whether you’re a dark beer person or not) as well as free factory tours and friendly staff. There are also frequently events and live music that they host, so check out their calendar to see what’s coming next.

Beers to try out:

Raspberry Milk Stout

Roasted coffee notes combine with raspberries and chocolate malt for creamy decadence.

Meet the sultry sister of America’s Stout—Raspberry Milk Stout. We took pure milk chocolate bliss and kissed it with raspberries, still allowing for roasted coffee notes to shine through. Each luxurious, decadent sip lingers into a voluptuous finale. It’s a liquid raspberry truffle meant to cultivate curves and entice you for more. Dark and delicious has never been more tempting. So light the candles, turn on Al Green, and crack a can of Raspberry Milk Stout. You’ve just set the mood.

Colorful Colorado

Welcome to Colorful Colorado, a bold, citrusy pale ale brewed with Rocky Mountain water for all your Centennial State adventures.

Hard Wired Nitro

SUPER SMOOTH WITH CHOCOLATE MALT, COFFEE AND TOFFEE NOTES.

Innately predisposed to be smooth when Poured Hard, this nitro coffee porter builds a pillowy, toffee-sweet head. Coffee and flavors of caramelized sugar, cacao and hints of blueberry lead to a light, smoky finish.
