ELP Bronze Achiever - Left Hand Brewing
Left Hand Brewing
Left Hand Brewing is the 44th largest craft brewery in the U.S. with a growing fan base in 40 states, the District of Columbia and throughout Europe & Japan. Famous for our Nitro series and America’s Stout – Milk Stout Nitro, we're also one of the most honored and recognized breweries in the state, with over 28 Great American Beer Festival medals, 11 World Beer Cup awards, and 9 European Beer Star awards. With a longstanding commitment to our community and people, Left Hand has contributed $2.8M since 2008 in donations and goods to Colorado and beyond. In 2015, we became an employee owned, ESOP structured organization honoring our dedication to brewing independence and broad employee ownership.
We strive to be an environmentally conscious company, committed to our long-term impact and reducing our carbon footprint, paired with educating our team on the importance of sustainable growth. Left Hand’s sustainability efforts are fluid and continuous, as we explore new ways to conserve resources with the growth of our brewery. Over the years, we’ve established best practices to continue to offset our expanding footprint including utilizing flash steam recovery during brewing to save energy, exploring process changes on cleaning to save water, and allocating our largest waste stream – spent grain, to a local cattle farm. In particular, we happy to report that when it comes to beer’s #1 ingredient – water, we’re in the 25% for beer industry consumption!
As we move towards the future, our philosophy remains the same since day one – Left Hand will continue to be a brewery driven by quality, integrity, and the customer experience, one pint at a time.
