Left Hand Brewing
in Longmont is out early with its copper-colored Oktoberfest Märzen Lager. The 6.6 percent ABV German-style beer took two months two brew (so drink it slowly), something that was made easier by Left Hand's recent addition of several 480-barrel fermenters. The space crunch meant that Oktoberfest was only available in Colorado last year. This year, the slightly sweet, biscuity beer will be available in all 25 states where Left Hand is distributed.
