Believe the hype kids.
Our friends at the Lefthand Brewery have done it again and blown our minds.
Their ESB is now pouring on Nitro at the Taproom.
What does this exactly mean?
The original intention of adding nitrogen to beer and serving it through a nitro faucet was to mimic the effect of the beer engine. The gas used to displace nitro beers is 70 percent nitrogen and 30 percent carbon dioxide, which is an approximation of what is in the air we breath.
So what we are offering is a version of Sawtooth ESB that will have a body and mouth feel similar to a cask beer. Pretty fancy huh? You can read more about Sawtooth ESB and what people have to say about it here.
