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

Truly a beautiful beer. Odell Brazzle Sour Raspberry Ale is back for spring

Odell Brazzle Bottle

Odell Brazzle Sour Golden Raspberry Ale has reappeared at the brewery again today.

The base beer is a golden ale, soured in oak barrels used for Odell’s Woodcut offerings, with multiple wild yeasts for a full two years. 300 pounds of raspberries are looped into the process before and after the bacteria and yeasts do their thing.

This beer just bursts with fresh raspberry aromas that really burst with each sip as well. There’s a subtle tartness in the finish that is both playful and attention-grabbing. All in all, this truly is a biological beauty of a beer. Drink fresh, in the sun, and if you have them – friends.

“We used golden raspberries to brew with, which gives this sour a touch of sweetness. There is also a bright, tart fruit and citrus flavor that comes through. The sour acidity plays well with the raspberry flavor. This is a very unique sour, and WELL worth the wait!” – ” Barrel Aging/Pilot System Manager, Brent Cordle. “

Odell Brazzle is available in 750ml bottles and draft.

Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Barrel Aged. Raspberries.)
Availability: 750 ml bottles, Corked & Caged
