(Las Vegas, NV) – Left Hand Brewing Company announced today a partnership with Wirtz Beverage that will bring the Colorado-based craft brewery’s portfolio of award-winning beers to Nevada next month.
“We are excited to partner with Wirtz Beverage to fulfill a longtime goal of giving beer lovers throughout Nevada the opportunity to enjoy our handcrafted brews,” said Jason Ingram, national sales director for Left Hand Brewing. “It’s been amazing to see the growth of craft beer in Nevada, from a craft desert to a beer-lover’s oasis.”
The 22-year-old Left Hand Brewing Company has seen its popularity skyrocket in recent years with the boom of the craft beer industry and as a result of their reputation for well-balanced, award-winning beers. Once the Nevada partnership is launched, Left Hand will have expanded into seven new states this year alone, bringing the brewery’s total footprint to 35 states.
Wirtz Beverage Nevada will distribute Left Hand’s perennial line and famed Nitro series, including: Milk Stout and Milk Stout Nitro, which was the first bottled craft nitrogenated beer; Sawtooth Ale and Sawtooth Nitro; Introvert Session IPA; Black Jack Porter; and Polestar Pilsner. Wirtz Beverage will also distribute Left Hand’s seasonal brews, limited editions and the company’s Mountain Mixer variety pack.
“We’re honored to partner with such a highly respected brewery like Left Hand, a company widely recognized for the Nitro Milk Stout and overall innovative approach to crafting beers,” said Kent Bearden, Craft Brands Channel Manager for Wirtz Beverage Nevada. “Left Hand’s lineup of esteemed brands will be an excellent addition to the Wirtz Beverage Nevada portfolio.”
Left Hand Brewing will kick off its Nevada arrival at the Las Vegas Beer and Barrel Project on Aug. 28, with the brewery offering a limited edition version of the nationally renowned Milk Stout along with the crisp Polestar Pilsner.
