Left Hand Flamingo Dreams Nitro flocks to year-round lineup

Left Hand Flamingo Dreams Nitro

Left Hand Flamingo Dreams Nitro joins the brewery’s year-round lineup in April.

Milk Stout Nitro is truly what puts Left Hand on the map. In recent years, the brewery has been building of the popularity of their “Nitro” lineup. This new creation is inspired by the upcoming days spent by the pool. According to Left Hand, most nitro beers lean toward stouts and porters. Not Flamingo Dreams. “You can’t find another beer like this on the market. It will definitely make you think differently about nitro beers,” says Jill Preston, Director of Marketing.

Flamingo Dreams Nitro is a blonde ale, brewed with fresh raspberries and blackcurrants.

Bursting with raspberries and blackcurrants and ready to jam, this berry blonde ale pours a striking pink. At 4.7% ABV, it’s super smooth and refreshing with a berry burst, frisky zing and nitro glide that will bring out your vibrant side, especially poolside.

Left Hand Flamingo Dreams Nitro will be available in 13.65-ounce cans and draft, nationally.

Style: Blonde Ale (w/ Raspberries. Black Currants. Nitrogen Infused.)
Availability: 13.65oz Cans, Draft. Year-Round.
Debut: April 2019

Finally. Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro cans are here

Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout Cans

Left Hand Brewing made headlines a few years ago when they debuted their milk stout in bottles. At the time they were the first craft brewery to transition to nitro packaging. With the addition of cans to their lineup, many fans thought the lack of milk stout was an oversight. Not anymore Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro cans will debut this year.

RELATED: Left Hand A Blessing & A Curse

One of the most recognizable milk stouts in the world is finally getting the can treatment. The smooth and creamy (and chocolatey) milk stout will soon go everywhere you go, with no glass limitations. The best part of this news? These babies are a full 16 ounces. While the bottles are nitrogen injected, each for the cans have a nitro “widget” that’s stuck to the bottom of the can. Nitrogen gas rushes upward through beer upon opening. No glass needed.

While a glass is always recommended for the perfect pint, especially when you #PourHard a Nitro bottle, cans bring a greater drinking versatility, and bring Milk Stout Nitro to your lips with the crack of a can.

Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro cans will be available across the brewery’s 40 state reach starting in August.

Summer is winding down, and fest beers are arriving. Left Hand Oktoberfest marks the transition into cooler days.

If the brewery is continuing their brewing trend, Left Hand started work on this malty lager this past spring. It takes two months to perfect.

Style: Oktoberfest
Hops: Magnum and Spalter Select
