Cool little tasting room on the west side of town. Somewhat of a C-shaped bar on the right side of the entry that seats about 15 with a few tables up front and patios in both front and back. A dozen or so beers on tap, I had the Tuesday IPA, it was very nice. Friendly service and a nice food truck.

One of the gems of Colorado. I haven't had anything I don't like, or want to drink more than once. My favorite is the popular Milk Stout, even though I'm lactose intolerant. I have moved to more of the other sections like Sawtooth or the Polestar Pilsner.

Seriously... a food truck? That delivers food over a fence to you? Good thing the beer is excellent and the staff is friendly. Don't expect to grab a bite that's of worth. The pre-set flights were great, and the atmosphere and music was eclectic and spontaneous. It's been checked off the bucket list, but I would have expected this place to have a much better complement of snacks accessible or nearby to compliment the outstanding beer.

Pretty chill taproom with some cool artwork. Friendly bartenders are happy to help. Tour was super fun and gave a great look into their history as well as how they do their thing. Local food trucks out front are always fun ways to get a quality bite to eat.

One of the few places I've visited that the location was better and more memorable than the beer. The drive out from Denver is really nice. You can tell the place has been around for a long time. It doesn't have that newer brewery feel, which is a plus. The beer here is fine, you've had the milk stout. Everyone has had the milk stout. Never really been blown away by their offerings, but you have to go here if you are in the area.

Great atmosphere, great beers. Not much available beyond what you'd find in your local beer store. Cool place to hang for a couple of hours.

Left Hand is, obviously, the go-to beer destination in Longmont. The beers are consistently very good to great, the stouts especially so, and you owe it to yourself to try the good ol' Milk Stout super fresh.

Unfortunately, the tap room suffers from the lack of intimacy that's inevitable with any successful brewery: late on a Monday, they were packed with tourists and neophyte beer people. You can't hold it against the place, and the crowd was friendly--I'm not criticizing tourists; heck I was one--but it just wasn't quite the beer geek destination I tend to seek out when traveling.

Still, like I said, everything was welcoming and everyone was friendly. The fact that it's not made to appeal to degenerates like myself should not be considered a knock against its objective quality. But if you are into degeneracy, my advice is that you stop here for a pint to two and then skedaddle over to Wibby for the remainder of your evening.

This place was ok, but my wife liked better because of their high quality stouts which I also liked. All other non stouts a little off to me, but would understand why others would like because of unique taste. Cool gift shop with the stout glass I want, but too thin for air travel. Overall, worth the stop to experience, especially when bringing my beautiful bride of 20 years to celebrate.
