Left Hand Brewing Co.

Our story started in December of 1990 with a small homebrewers kit. Dick Doore, the co-founder of Left Hand, received the kit as a Christmas present from his brother. According to Dick, “it was all downhill from there.” His obsession with homebrewing led him back to Colorado in August of 1993, where he met up with a former college buddy and soon-to-be Left Hand co-founder, Eric Wallace. It didn’t take the two long to start brewing beer. Dick had been homebrewing for years, and Eric had traveled extensively internationally, seeking out great beers wherever and whenever he could. After brewing several batches that impressed their friends and lucky neighbors, Eric and Dick became more confident in their craft. It was only after drinking quite a lot of really good dry stout that they had brewed, that they had their epiphany: “Let’s start a brewery.”
Twenty-five years later, Left Hand Brewing is the 44th largest craft brewery in the U.S. with a growing fan base in 42 states, the District of Columbia and throughout Europe, Canada, Japan, China, and South Korea. Famous for our Nitro series and America’s Stout – Milk Stout Nitro, Left Hand Brewing is also one of the most honored and recognized breweries in the state, with over 29 Great American Beer Festival medals, 11 World Beer Cup awards, and 9 European Beer Star awards.
