Left Hand Releases St. Vrain Tripel Ale

(LONGMONT, CO) - In honor of the mighty St. Vrain River that lies due west of the brewery, Left Hand Brewing Company has released their limited edition St. Vrain Tripel after a 2-year absence. The St. Vrain River originates in Rocky Mountain National Park, and flows through Longmont on its way east. Named after Ceran St. Vrain, an early settler of the valley who helped establish the first permanent trading post by white men in what is now Colorado. A reflection of this pioneering spirit can also be found in the ales of Belgium, where brewers, often monks, developed beers of distinctive character over the past 900 years.
Simply admiring our hazy golden Belgian-style Tripel in your wide-rimmed glass doesn't even begin to reveal its complexity. The spicy aroma that streams upward with hints of wild flower honey and orange blossom is your first clue of the depth of St. Vrain Tripel. The sweetness from the malt makes itself known immediately, progressing to bittersweet honey and dried fruit flavors, and finishing out with the lingering earthiness from the Stisselspalt hops (21.7 IBU's). The warming effect of the 8.1% ABV is your final indication that the initial simplicity masks St. Vrain's beautiful intricacy.
"To maximize authenticity," says Joe Schiraldi, Vice President of Brewing Operations, "the entire brewing staff shaved their heads and bathed in baptismal ecstasy on the banks of the St. Vrain. So raise a glass to the pioneering spirit that brings brews of great distinction to the table!"

The beer is medium-bodied, brass in color, and is available in 22 oz bombers and kegs. It will be available throughout Colorado, as well as in Alaska, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Texas, Virginia and Washington.
