Stopped by here on my latest trip to CO. If I wasn't set upon visiting this brewery, I would not have spent the inordinate amount of time finding the place. I realize I'm repeating a theme here, but damn... Perhaps that soured me a bit...it also didn't help that I was completely ignored while I was there (I was the only one looking at their goods and only about 3-4 people at the bar...I would have understood if they were hoppin'). And to top it off, I spent more for their beer at the brewery itself than I would at a liquor store. Not cool. Oftentimes breweries will have something special on tap that you can't find in stores...not here. Just the basic Left Hand brews. I still love their beer, but would not recommend the brewery experience.

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.
