I had a great time and some great beers at Left Hand's tap room in Longmont, CO. The brewers are knowledgable, relaxed, know their regulars and love a good conversation. It seemed that the crowd was a good mix of after-work locals and tourists like myself (drawn into town just to check out the brewwery.

The Good JuJu on tap was wonderful as was the Milk Stout on nitro. Tried several others and am still trying to wrap my mind around my first taste of TNT (do I love it or despise it?). My only disappointment is that they happened to be out of both the cask brews the day I was there. Bummer, I guess I'll have to plan another trip to the Boulder 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.

Copied from my Trip Advisor review.

Stayed in Longmont a few days with this being one of the main reasons. It was a nice brewery to visit. I was expecting to find several picks I couldn't get back home but most of what they had I can get back home. They had just tapped Warrior IPA but I didn't care for it too much. And make sure your ID is up to date. I had a temp drivers license and the manager took 5 minutes to look it over an approve, even though I have more gray hair than the two people I dealt with combined. The little taster glasses make cute souvenirs.
