Fun place to wind down on the banks of the "mighty St. Vrain". Its a popular after work hangout for many Longmont biotech companies (you can name them all on one finger). The interior is what i would call cozy without sounding cliche. All of their year round beers are on tap, with a beer of the month at a reduced rate. There is no happy hour pricing nor a kitchen, this is strictly a beer cafe showcasing Left Hand's English styled beers. The occasional IPA or belgian (an amazing gueuze a few years back!) There is typically a cask selection available.
Although, on certain days they invite local restaurants to pop in and offer a food selection, but otherwise they offer free bowls of pretzels.
Merchandise is available for sale, as are growlers and bottles of beer to go.
Its kind of out of the way in South Longmont in an industrial area, but worth search; they are friendly and their beers are clean.

I stopped by Left Hand on the way back from a trip to Ft. Collins. Good thing my buddy knew the way as I would have gotten lost. They have a nice pub with a good sized bar and some patio seating. Brewery tours are very limited which is a huge disappointment as I love tours. Pints were reasonably priced at $3 but they were selling growlers of "reserve" for $35. I assume that had to be a Big Mo seasonal brew like the Oaked Imp. Stout. Service was decent and they had a good amount of merchandise for sale.

The Left Hand tasting room has the feel of the front room for a production facility, though it's been gussied up with some homey decorations and a lot of Left Hand logo wear. They've got a nice patio for April-to-November weather as well. It's not at all a bad atmosphere to grab a drink in, though it's more or less what I've come to expect from breweries that attach a beer bar/tasting room: light industry meets minimalist pub. Monday at happy hour, they were doing fairly brisk business with a lot of regulars who were drinking from their mugs; as such, the service was a little bit scatterbrained (I had to ask for a glass of water three times), but the servers were friendly and funny. They don't serve any food of their own, but they do carry in from local Longmont restaurants every night except Monday (when I visited, alas).
They have only Left Hand beers on tap (no surprise there) and had thirteen offerings when I visited recently: all nine of the year-round beers as well as Snowbound (their winter seasonal), and the three most recent offerings from their Big Mo series. To boot they had the Oak Aged Imperial Stout (the most recent Big Mo) on cask. Stopping by the brewery is a great way to try the high gravity offerings from Left Hand; it's way more reasonable to spend $4 on a pint of St Vrain Tripel and Smokejumper than $11 for the bottle. Their sampler plate is reasonably priced as well, and they've got good promo information on all of the beers for BAs to geek out on.
Overall, this is a fine brewery to visit, and it's the best place to grab a beer in Longmont. On a more individual note, I am not usually a huge fan of Left Hand's year-round brews, or rather, I haven't been a huge fan of the bottles I've had in the past. The freshness factor has played against them; many of the beers (Jackman's APA and the Polestar Pilsner, in particular) were much better on tap.

Just there last week. Found my way in at about 2:15 and found the place very friendly. Chatted it up with the visitors from out of town and then chatted it up with some of the locals that have their own glass, able to spin the wheel, etc. Katie the very nice woman who served me was wonderful, knowledgeable, and overall great to chat with. Found that we had a lot in common. Left with a growler and wish I lived closer to share in the experience more often. Also wish I had more time and personal driver so I could sample more of their fine offerings.
