Left Hand Brewing Expands into Nebraska


Left Hand Brewing Company, one of the original pioneers in craft brewing and famous for its Nitro series, has partnered with Premier-Midwest Beverage Company to bring its lineup, including its flagship Milk Stout Nitro, to the Nebraska beer community next 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 humbled by the outpouring of excitement from craft beer enthusiasts in Nebraska and are thrilled to be expanding our Left Hand print,” said Jill Preston, Left Hand Director of Marketing. “We look forward to our partnership with Premier-Midwest, a respected leader in the industry, and introducing Left Hand to our northern neighbors.”

The distribution partnership with Premier-Midwest will be an extension of Left Hand’s continued U.S. expansion increasing the brewery’s handprint to 42 states and D.C. Premier-Midwest will initially distribute Milk Stout Nitro (draft, bottles and cans), Milk Stout CO2 (bottles), Death Before Disco Porter (draft, cans) Left Hand IPA (draft), Juicy Goodness Dry Hopped Golden Ale (cans), Sawtooth Amber Ale (draft) and 25th Anniversary Imperial Stout (draft) in the Omaha, Lincoln, and Grand Island markets. Please visit Left Hand’s beer finder for specific availability.

“We’re honored to be bringing Left Hand back to Nebraska, said Bryon Zechmann, Vice President and Director of Marketing at Premier-Midwest. “The excitement from our sales team, retail partners, and consumers has been amazing!”

Special tap takeovers at select Omaha and Lincoln locations will kick off the first week in March featuring Milk Stout Nitro, Death Before Disco Porter, Left Hand IPA, Sawtooth Amber Ale and a special tapping of 25th Anniversary Imperial Stout.
