We finally move East to another US craft beer hotspot: Colorado and one of the most interesting breweries right now. Left Hand Brewing are the pioneers of today. Their Milk Stout Nitro was the first brewery to master bottling Nitrogen beer without a widget. The Nitro makes the beer super silky and it’s something we’ll see a lot more of in the coming years. Left Hand have also nailed the milk stout market (if there is one), and often cited as one of the best in the world. A milk stout is a sweeter, richer and more luscious version of the dark beer. Their directions of ‘pour hard’ for the nitro beers have become a bit of a catch phrase.
