Good Beer Hunting

b-Roll no. 161

Following heavier than usual rainfall in 2013, Saint Vrain Creek, a tributary that flows through the town of Longmont, CO, burst its banks. Left Hand Brewing Company sits right on those very banks, and parts of its facility were left four feet underwater after the flood. Power outages meant that one of its 480-barrel fermenters had to have its entire contents dumped. The brewery otherwise survived the damage caused by the flood, but this marker sits outside the taproom as a permanent reminder.
