Beer Bros – Colorado’s Left Hand Brewing Halts Production, Uses Malt as Flood Protection

The floods caused by the St. Vrain river around Longmont, Colorado, destroyed homes and businesses alike, and Left Hand Brewing was one of the affected. Forced to evacuate, the brewery’s team laid down malt bags in lieu of sand bags, said a spokeswoman in a statement to the Westword. With clearance from the National Guard, the brewery now plans to reopen the tap room and is now focused on its upcoming Oktoberfest celebration this Friday and Saturday in Roosevelt Park.
