LONGMONT, Colo. – Left Hand Brewing Company, one of the original pioneers in craft brewing, released the first two beers of the dozen brands they are bringing to market in 2021. St. Vrain Tripel makes its long-anticipated return to their lineup as a year-round beer available for the first time ever in cans. Found Fortune Double IPA features a wealth of premium hops and debuts as their first CO2 seasonal of the year.
St. Vrain Tripel has a legacy at Left Hand. As one of their most critically acclaimed ales, the last release was rated the #1 American Tripel in a blind tasting by Paste Magazine. Previously only available in bombers, this Belgian-style golden ale with intricate aromas of fruit and spice is now available in can and bottle 6-packs.
“St. Vrain is all about the spicy and fruity Belgian yeast,” says Jeff Joslin, Director of Brewing Operations at Left Hand. “The hops are late in the boil and support the yeast; the grain bill is mostly Pilsner malt to make the beer pale, bright, and beautiful. What you have is a classic beer that overflows with banana, clove, apple, and honey aromas.”
Left Hand is located along St. Vrain Creek, a tributary that flows from the Rocky Mountains. The beer is named in honor of their location and the water source that contributes to their recipes.
Found Fortune heavily features El Dorado hops, inspiring the gold and fortune themed name. Dry-hopped with El Dorado, Galaxy, and Citra, this Double IPA is a treasure trove of hops.
“The standout hop in Found Fortune is El Dorado, giving a lot of orange and pineapple to the aroma,” says Joslin. “Galaxy and Citra add to the citrus and tropical fruit, and the oats and Golden Promise malt bring a sweetness that works perfectly with the mountainous piles of hops.”
St. Vrain Tripel is now available year-round and Found Fortune Double IPA is available for the next three months in 6pks of 12oz cans, and on draft. St. Vrain is also available in select markets in 6pks of 12oz. bottles. Check out the Left Hand beer finder for locations nearest you and click here for digital assets.
