FAQ

General

Our collection of beers is available in 44 states, DC and a growing number of international countries. For current selections available near you, use our Beer Finder. We always recommend calling ahead to ensure this information is accurate.

No success on the Beer Finder? This may be for a couple of reasons. 

  1. It can take up to one week after the beer hits shelves for the information to populate in the Beer Finder.
  2. Beers are removed from the Beer Finder if it has been over 90 days since the delivery was made.
  3. Your local store may not have placed an order for this beer, but they may be able to order if from their distributor. Ask your local stores for a special order or, better yet, ask them to stock it!
  4. Your local distributor may not have placed an order for this beer. Keep tabs on what you would like to see from us and tell your local stores and distributors what you want them to carry from us in the future!

The following beers are gluten-reduced:

  • Left Hand IPA
  • Sawtooth and Sawtooth Nitro

Nitro

The term "Nitro" comes from the process of blending Nitrogen into your beer. The addition of Nitrogen has a big impact on mouthfeel and overall flavor perception. Traditionally, beers are carbonated with CO2 which creates large, effervescent bubbles. Nitro beers are designed to be lightly carbonated. This results in a truly unique and super smooth texture!

The captivating cascade of a Nitro beer is like no other and we were determined to achieve this experience on-the-go! Our brewing team pioneered technology to package Nitro beers into both bottles and cans. Nitrogen is put into both packages in a liquid state and needs agitation to get into the gaseous state which creates lots of creamy, tiny bubbles. The Pour Hard method is necessary to release the Nitro magic in your bottle. A Left Hand can, however, has a widget to agitate the nitrogen and your beer is good to go without pouring. Check out lefthandnitro.com to learn more!

Nitro beers are designed to be lightly carbonated, creating a velvety texture and totally unique mouthfeel. The mouthfeel is intentionally different! Where CO2 bubbles are large and result in more effervescence, nitrogen bubbles are tiny and create a super smooth experience.  

The Nitrogen in your Left Hand beer is put into the bottle in a liquid state. It needs agitation to get into the gaseous state which creates all of those creamy, tiny bubbles. Our Nitro bottles require being inverted and hard poured into a glass. Please see this video for a demonstration on the Pour Hard method and remember to pour your beer at the temperature listed on your bottle, 40-45°F. We find that this almost always solved a "flat" mouthfeel perception.

Please let us know if you have any feedback after using this method. If there are any additional quality questions or concerns, please fill out our Beer Feedback form.

In 2011, we debuted Milk Stout Nitro in the bottle without the use of a widget. A widget is what is traditionally used to agitate the nitrogen (hence, "Nitro") that is in your brew. In order to get our signature super smooth Nitro mouthfeel just right, we took years to perfect a method of packaging nitrogenated beer without a widget.

Nitrogen is put in your bottle in a liquid state and needs agitation to get into the gaseous state which creates lots of creamy, tiny bubbles. Removing the widget means we need a new agitator . . . enter you! Our Nitro bottles require being inverted and hard poured in a glass. Please see this video for a demonstration.

That means if you drink our beer directly from the bottle, or pour it at a 45 degree angle into a glass, the nitrogen didn’t get the chance to work its magic. It's still liquid and not forming bubbles. As a result, you won't get that super smooth overall mouthfeel. So, go ahead, be aggressive and Pour Hard!

The Pour Hard method is only a necessary pouring technique for our non-widgeted bottles. With Ball widget technology, our Nitro beers are Good to Go straight from the can! However, we do recommend pouring your delicious beer into a glass for optimal enjoyment.
