Brewery Highlight – Left Hand Brewery
From humble beginnings back in 1993, Left Hand Brewery Co. has grown to become the most awarded brewery in Colorado at the Great American Beer Festival claiming it’s 29th medal in 2018.
Team Left Hand was created in 2008 with two employees and a handful of friends and customers riding together to help solve the MS mystery. Since their first Bike MS ride, they have had over 2,250 riders and have raised over $2.8 million dollars.
In their 20th year, the Left Hand Brewing Foundation was created and supports primary needs, community support groups, arts & cultural activities, housing projects, medical research & responds to issues and emergencies in the Longmont community and beyond. The LHBF also hosts four major events throughout the year: Hops + Handrails, Leftapalooza – Mile High Tribute Competition, Longmont Oktoberfest, and Nitro Fest. In 2015, Left Hand became an employee owned honoring their dedication to brewing independence and broad employee ownership. We are fortunate to have Left Hand Brewing involved in our inaugural Boulder Beer Chase being held on June 15th, 2019.
“Left Hand Brewing is proud to be involved in the inaugural Boulder Beer Chase! We’ve had a long standing relationship with runners and beer in our community and we can’t wait to welcome participants, offer some refreshment, and be connected to local breweries all along the Front Range with this incredible event.”
