Left Handed (Longmont, CO) – Renowned for its innovative nitro releases, Left Hand Brewing is debuting a new year-round offering, and it couldn’t be more traditional. Brimming with delicate citrus hops and light bready malts, Left Hand 1265 Pilsner is a crisp and lively 5.2% ABV Lager with a refined orange and lemon hop profile complemented by a touch of sweetness.
“We have a deep tradition of brewing lagers,” said Eric Wallace, Co-Founder & President of Left Hand. “My passion for beer started while I was living in Germany and experiencing beautifully crafted traditional pilsners. Our brewing team created a beer that really exemplifies this classic style, and it has quickly become a favorite of both our employee owners and our guests in the Tasting Room. It’s a beer deeply rooted in our history, and we’re so proud of it we named it after our home.”
On Fire! (Juneau, Alaska) – Alaskan Brewing has a new limited release that pairs perfectly with summer up north. Delicate yet complex, Alaskan Fireweed Blonde is a light-bodied 4.5% ABV American Blonde Ale brewed with fireweed honey, a nectar sometimes called the “champagne of honey,” that’s the result of honeybees harvesting nectar from the vibrant fireweed plants which bloom in summer throughout Alaska.
A Haze Daze (Hershey, PA) –Last May Tröegs Independent Brewing Company debuted its first year-round release in 4 years …a beer that spent more than six months in development at the brewery’s small-batch Scratch Brewhouse.
