After taking heat nationally for its Leftist approach to brewing, Longmont’s signature brewery will change its 23 year old name effective May 2017. Colorado residents expressed… April Fool’s! Now check out our April Spotlight Brewery: The one, only, and always Left Hand Brewing.

I know it is unfortunate but we have a lot of rain and probably a snow storm or two in the coming month, but the good news is there will be plenty of delicious Left Hand beers on sale for all of it! After 23 years of brewing magic, Left Hand is the 39th largest craft brewery in the United States. And in 2015 became an employee owned, ESOP structured organization honoring our dedication to brewing independence and broad employee ownership. Pettyjohn’s will be featuring Left Hand beer for savings of a dollar or more depending on the package. The Sawtooth Ale has a malty chewiness slowly transitioning over to herbal, earthy hops with a dry finish. Polestar Pilsner is a zesty German-Style pilsner with great bicuity malt flavor and a dry, crisp finish. Extrovert IPA comes with assertive tropical hops balanced by complex malt giving it a dry finish. Milk Stout, milk sugar in your stout is like cream in your coffee enough said. Nitro Milk Stout is super smooth with soft roastiness and mocha flavors. Dumping beer into a glass is a beautiful thing. And Black Jack Porter brings with it slight malt sweetness with notes of dark chocolate, espresso and herbal hops. All unique, all very drinkable and at Pettyjohn’s  for the month of April it’s all on sale! Can’t decide? Grab a mixed twelve pack also on sale.
