Our last brewery stop for the day. Turns out we saved the best for last. There was a nice crowd here sampling beer and having a good time. There must have been 20 beers on tap and a couple of firkins. We sampled several dark beers, a Russian Imperial Stout, Porter, Pepper Porter, and Milk Stout. My vote went to the Imperial Stout as the best beer of the day. We didn’t see food service or snacks; we may have just missed it. We didn’t have a problem finding the place or with parking.

I wish this place was closer so I could go there more often. The brewery looks like a big log cabin, and is out of the way of the main roads. It has a truly unique feel to it, just like most of their beers. They have a lot of great stuff on tap, and the staff is really friendly. I wasn't able to drink much while I was there because I was driving, but my friends were having a great time slamming all of Left Hand's delicious beers. I can't wait to go back.

this is a front range classic and is worth going out of your way to visit. left hand has some the most clean and creative beers in the nation. knowledgeable draughtsman will set you up with a nice sampler, i asked for the "breadth" and had it, the juju ginger, 400 lbs. monkey ipa (100%), black jack porter, milk stout and a couple others. although a little pricey and the merchandise area (great logo) seems to have grown since the last time i was there, left hand has live bluegrass, free pretzels and stickers, as well as one of the best beer drinking experiences one can have, in one of the best beer drinking regions in the world.

very cool place. not much parking but we got lucky and found a close spot on a sunny saturday afternoon. what i really like about this brewery is that they brew some nontraditional types of brews. the juju ginger is creative and not too strong of a ginger taste. i'm not a stout fan but the imperial stout we got was oak aged and was really really good. the pale is pretty good but nothing special. the wheat was way too banana for my tastes. not a fan of pilsner either and their pilsner was also surprisingly good to me. the best beer i had there was the ipa. it was a strong representation of the style. they have some cool merchandise and a nice outdoor patio.the crowd was laid back and the service was good. they had a good selection of beers on tap for sure.

This is a fun little brewery that doubles as a local's bar. Atmosphere is pleasant, people are friendly, bartenders were loads of fun and quite helpful.

Samplers were a bit pricey relative to other breweries I've been to. $8 for a 6 shot sampler. So if you're going to go sample their brews, expect to pay good money. They have more than just six...so, truly sampling their collection will cost you.


The Beer:
The Juju Ginger is quite gingery but a well balanced light ale brew. The Milk Stout is so much fun. You can taste the espresso and chocolate right from the beginning and its milky creaminess is amazing. AND, they have it on tap, Nitro, and cask...each has a very unique feel and flavor! Try them all!!! You will not be disappointed. Black Jack Porter is not my favorite but its on my short list of porters. Bit of bitter finish but quite chocolaty. The Sawtooth ale which is an American ESB is not bad...if you know Fat Tire, its not a far cousin in flavor. Imperial Stout is a pleasant lightly bitter stout. Jackman's Am Pale ale is not the greatest pale ale I've had but it has a really nice, not bitter finish.

Had a lot of fun here. It was pretty easy to get to and there are several other Breweries in the area. Ask for a sticker! They are free!

This person needs 3 or more reviews on the site for their scores to start counting.

Lefthand is a local's hangout. But there's always friendly folks there (staff and patrons included). There's usually something special - on cask (there are 2 firkins attached to beer engines), plus the big mo beers (once a quarter specials). The standard lineup is excellent - my personal favorite is Jackmans American Pale Ale, but the Polestar Pilsner and Haystack Wheat can go head to head with any german offering (and come out on top of many). The flagship Sawtooth is a wonderful ESB and has won several awards. The Milk Stout (on nitro especially) is not to be missed (and has taken gold several times at the world beer cup).

Some stats: there's always the 'perennial' selection of 9 beers available on tap and for sale. Theres 11 'seasonal' favorites that you will find about 5 of at any one time you visit. And the beer engines are always loaded with something special - be it a standard beer with special hopping or even a wood-aged, cask conditioned offering. Be sure to check the chalkboard first! Oh, and the nitro tap, which usually has Milk Stout sometimes has a special stand in (try the Jackmans Pale Ale on nitro if you get the chance)

Stop by, have a pint, sit for a while and smile.

Having a beer at the brewery is always good. It doesn't get any fresher. Their beers are all exceptional. Their Polestar Pilsner is an excellent representation of the pilsner style. Other beers to try are the Milk Stout, JuJu Ginger. It can be difficult to find parking sometimes, but that is a testimony to the popularity of their beers. Last time I visited there was a food cart out front selling Greek food (souvalki, gyros etc.)

had to make the obligatory stop at left hand...well...because i'm left handed. their hefeweisen was amazingly true to style for any american brewery that i've run across so far. the rest of their selection was very tasty as well. the sampler cost around $12, but was well worth it. place was full of locals buying pints, and was generally a friendly place. very cool merch, if you're a lefty like me.
