Left Hand Brewing Company, an industry pioneer in Nitro beer styles and technology headquartered in Longmont, Colorado, is debuting a new Nitro year-round beer, Peanut Butter Milk Stout Nitro.
This Nitro Milk Stout embodies the flavor of a peanut butter cup with a Nitro mouthfeel. Peanut Butter Milk Stout Nitro enters Left Hand’s lineup as the sweet and savory companion to its highly recognized Milk Stout Nitro. The new Nitro will be available nationwide year-round to “Pour Hard” from the bottle and savor on draft.
Peanut Butter Milk Stout Nitro is unique not only in experience, but also in pouring technique. It joins Milk Stout Nitro as one of two nitrogenated brands from the brewery to be distributed in bottles. Milk Stout Nitro originally debuted in bottles at the Great American Beer Festival. As the first nitrogenated American craft beer to be bottled, Left Hand solved the riddle of delivering nitrogenated beer without a widget with the “Pour Hard” method.
With this pouring technique, consumers become an essential participant, helping create the nitrogen cascade. To “Pour Hard” is to aggressively pour beer at 180⁰, agitating the nitrogen out of solution and creating a mesmerizing cascade that culminates in a thick head. Milk Stout Nitro debuted utilizing this method in 2011 and as it celebrates 10 years of impact on Nitro technology and innovation in the industry, it welcomes Peanut Butter Milk Stout Nitro as its “butter half.”
Peanut Butter Milk Stout Nitro also capitalizes on the success of Peanut Butter Milk Stout, which launched as a seasonal in early 2020. Due to consumer delight and demand, Left Hand quickly turned the popular new brand into a year-round offering.
The addition of nitrogen to its traditionally carbonated Peanut Butter Milk Stout combines Left Hand’s signature smooth mouthfeel and cascade with a flavor profile of peanut butter and notes of milk chocolate.
“Nitrogen makes perfect sense for our Peanut Butter Milk Stout. Gas spec is an ingredient just like malt or hops, and nitrogen helps deliver that creaminess you crave from a peanut butter beer,” said Jeff Joslin, Left Hand’s director of brewing operations.
“Our classic Milk Stout’s aromas of roasted coffee, milk chocolate, brown sugar and vanilla cream are the perfect canvas for the rich and nutty flavors of peanut butter,” said Jill Preston, director of marketing and hospitality at Left Hand. “Whether you are pouring hard from the bottle or enjoying straight from the tap, its pillowy head and velvety mouthfeel will caress your palate smoother than a spoonful of creamy peanut butter.”
Peanut Butter Milk Stout Nitro is shipping now in six-packs of 12-oz. bottles and kegs. Check out Left Hand’s beer finder for locations nearest you.
