Left Hand Brewing Expands into South Dakota

Award-Winning Colorado Brewery Enters Sioux Falls this Month with Special Tap Takeovers


LONGMONT, Colo. May 13, 2019Left Hand Brewing Company, one of the original pioneers in craft brewing and famous for its Nitro series, has partnered with Dakota Beverage to bring its lineup, including its flagship Milk Stout Nitro, to South Dakota and the Sioux Falls beer community this month.


Milk Stout Nitro is the number one selling craft stout in the U.S. When hard poured it cascades beautifully, building a tight, thick head like firm whipped cream. The aroma is of brown sugar and vanilla cream, with hints of roasted coffee. At 6% ABV, the initial roasty, mocha flavors rise up with slight hop and roast bitterness in the finish. The rest is pure bliss of milk chocolate fullness.


“We’re excited for the opportunity to expand into South Dakota and have appreciated the warm welcome from our northern neighbors,” said Jill Preston, Left Hand Director of Marketing. “We look forward to our partnership with Dakota Beverage and introducing our year-round and seasonal lineup to craft beer enthusiasts in Sioux Falls and beyond.”


The distribution partnership with Dakota Beverage will be an extension of Left Hand’s continued U.S. expansion increasing the brewery’s handprint to 43 states and D.C. Dakota Beverage will initially distribute year-round Left Hand beers including Milk Stout Nitro, Flamingo Dreams Nitro, Death Before Disco Porter, Left Hand IPA, Juicy Goodness Dry Hopped Golden Ale, Sawtooth Amber Ale, Wheels Gose ’Round and Travelin’ Light Golden Ale. Seasonal and limited beers will include Good Juju, Peach Beerlini and Wake Up Dead Imperial Stout. Please visit Left Hand’s beer finder for specific availability.

“Dakota Beverage is honored to be able to partner with Left Hand Brewing. The enthusiasm and excitement for the launch of these great beers this week has been amazing,” said Brandon May, Craft Brand Manager, Dakota Beverage.  “The consumers have been waiting for this launch and our sales team, along with retail partners, are excited to help bring them this great brewery.”

About Multiple Sclerosis – The National Multiple Sclerosis Society – Bike MS

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable and often disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. A new study, led by the Society, estimates nearly one million people in the United States live with MS, that’s more than double the previous number. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society  exists so that people affected by MS can live their best lives. Through events like Bike MS, the largest fundraising cycling series in the world, the Society is able to fund groundbreaking MS research and life-changing programs to support people living with MS and their families.
