Nitro Fest Returns to Left Hand Brewing

World’s Only Nitro-Exclusive Beer Fest Features Nine International Breweries, 27 U.S. Breweries, and Performances from MarchFourth and Big Something

Envelop yourself in a dark, swanky beer festival like no other. On Saturday, Nov. 10 from 5-10pm, The Left Hand Brewing Foundation is proud to present the 5th annual Nitro Fest – the world’s only
exclusively nitrogenated beer festival, featuring rebelliously rare beers poured by acclaimed, invite-only breweries from across the globe. All proceeds of Nitro Fest will benefit the Left Hand Brewing Foundation.

Hosted in a 14,000 square-foot heated tent across the street from Left Hand Brewing, Nitro Fest is a macabre, mysterious and mystical evening with performances by MarchFourth and Big Something, as well as featured fire dancers, aerialists and more. Expected dress is Voodoo Masquerade formal, and guests should be ready for a one-of-akind evening and unforgettable experience.

This year the Left Hand Brewing Foundation is proud to welcome nine breweries from outside the United States to Longmont, Colo. representing the UK, Italy, Croatia, Japan, South Korea, China, Hong Kong, and Hungary. In addition, 27independent craft breweries from across the U.S. were asked to participate in Nitro Fest by invitation only. Not only will they be pouring their finest beers but also are bringing special collaborations and one-off creations just for Nitro Fest.

“We scoured the county looking for the best nitro beers available and personally reached out to each brewery to be a part of this year’s event. We are incredibly excited about the breweries joining us, and every beer is going to be mindblowing,” said Eric Kean, Event Manager for the Left Hand Brewing Foundation. “We’re also thrilled to be sharing our full Left Hand nitro line-up with festival goers like Chai Milk Stout Nitro and Wake Up Dead Nitro. Our brewers also have been working on a couple of special releases for the night that are top secret.”

Famous for its nitro series, Left Hand Brewing is the leader in nitro innovation launching America’s original nitro bottle with its flagship Milk Stout Nitro and the first production run of U.S.-made nitro widget cans. Nitro beers are carbonated with nitrogen instead of CO2, resulting in a lightly carbonated beer with a creamy texture and very smooth, velvety experience.

In addition to more than 80 amazing beers, Nitro Fest will also feature national touring artists MarchFourth and Big Something. MarchFourth is a joy-inducing force of entertainment. The colorful explosion of brassy funk, rock, and jazz is all about the groove. This larger-than-life group of musicians and acrobats tours the country year-round, bringing a spirit of celebration wherever they go. MarchFourth is, in a word, FUN!

Big Something is a six-piece powerhouse with a sound that is both unique and timeless. Big Something fuses elements of rock, pop, funk, and improvisation to take listeners on a journey through a myriad of musical styles. It’s no secret why this group has quickly become one of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the Southeast.

Tickets are on sale now at www.nitrofestbeer.com including General Admission and VIP ticket packages. VIP tickets include 1 hour of early access to the event, access to the VIP lounge, premium viewing of the stage, free VIP-only food and private restrooms.

Longmont Oktoberfest returns October 5-6 Featuring National Touring Artists JJ Grey and Mofro

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Longmont Oktoberfest returns October 5-6 Featuring National Touring Artists JJ Grey and Mofro

Event proceeds benefit the St. Vrain Football Club Scholarship Program and the

Left Hand Brewing Foundation

LONGMONT, Colo., Aug. 14, 2018 – Pull out your lederhosen and dirndls, grab a pretzel or brat and hoist your stein because Longmont Oktoberfest is back! Presented by the Left Hand Brewing Foundation for the 7th year in a row, Longmont Oktoberfest returns Oct. 5-6 to Roosevelt Park in Longmont, Colo. Longmont Oktoberfest is Longmont’s favorite fall gathering and this year will feature national touring artists JJ Grey and Mofro as well as 10+ breweries, local food, and games for all ages. Ranked as a “Must Visit Oktoberfest” by DRAFT Magazine, Longmont Oktoberfest celebrates the summer’s transition to fall while supporting two local organizations – The St. Vrain Football Club’s scholarship program and the Left Hand Brewing Foundation

This year’s headlining artist, JJ Grey and Mofro is one of the biggest talents to ever perform in Longmont. During his career he has brought his blues/southern rock sound to nearly every major venue in Colorado including headlining dates at Red Rocks Amphitheater. From the days of playing greasy local juke joints to headlining major festivals, JJ Grey remains an unfettered, blissful performer, singing with a blue-collared spirit over the bone-deep grooves of his compositions. His presence before an audience is something startling and immediate, at times a funk rave-up, other times a sort of mass-absolution for the mortal weaknesses that make him and his audience human. When you see JJ Grey and his band Mofro live—and you truly, absolutely must—the man is fearless.

Music will be in the air throughout the event, with local talent supporting JJ Grey on Friday night, and a full slate of local musicians and bands performing all day on Saturday. Performances will include traditional Oktoberfest music as well as some of Longmont’s most well-known performers. Stay tuned to for additional announcements in the weeks to come.

In addition to music all weekend, the event will feature classic Oktoberfest activities including sack races (kids and adults), stein holding contests, a costume contest, bratwurst eating competition, cooking up Colorado’s longest brat and the tapping of the official Oktoberfest keg to kick off the event on Friday evening.

Tickets go on sale Friday, August 17th at 10am at www.lhbfoundaation.org and for just $15 concert goers can not only enjoy the Friday night concert but attend all day Saturday as well! Single day tickets for Saturday are also available for just $5. Longmont Oktoberfest is a family event and tickets for kids 5-12 are $5 and those younger are free. For the ultimate event experience, VIP tickets are available for $65 and include access to the VIP lounge, premium seating, free VIP-only food and beverages, special beer pairings and private restrooms.

Food and libations will be in full effect along with the music vibes including local food trucks and Longmont’s favorite craft breweries, cideries and distilleries. Drink tokens can be purchased for $6 or four tokens for $20. Cash or credit will be accepted and there will be an ATM on site. For more event information, please visit www.lhbfoundation.org/longmont-oktoberfest.

To date, Longmont Oktoberfest has raised more than $246,000 in donations to charitable organizations. This year’s Longmont Oktoberfest sponsors include First National Bank, High Country Harley, High Plains Bank, Airgas, Westrock, Best Western Plus, and more.
