Nitro Fest - Revision 2015

Nitro Fest | November 11, 2017

Transport your senses to an electrifying fantasyland of ambient sounds and rebelliously rare beers. Left Hand Brewing Foundation is proud to present the 4th annual Nitro Fest. The world’s only nitro-exclusive beer festival returns November 11th in Longmont. 40+ breweries from across the US, Ireland, the UK, China and Korea will be pouring super smooth nitro beers with circus acts, fire spinners, and wild costumes. Energetic joy & electric “jamtronica” dance vibes will take over the stage with LOTUS. Proceeds benefit the Left Hand Brewing Foundation.

The goal of our High Five Events is to provide attendees with a memorable experience while enjoying quality American craft beers. All participating breweries must meet the qualifications of an independent American craft brewery as defined by the Brewers Association. A craft brewer is small (less than 6 million barrels or less), independent (less than 25% owned by a non-craft alcohol member) & traditional.
