How to Cut the Bottom off a Beer Bottle Video.
An Amazing American Stout | Left Hand Brewing
The story of Left Hand Brewing Company out of Colorado is an all too familiar story of modern day micro breweries, It all started making small batches of home brew . Here it is right from their about us section of their website :
Micro Brewery Project at RGG Photo
A few months back we set out on a mission to highlight some of our favorite beers around the USA that have a unique bottle design, label, and/or flavor profile. This is the first installment of this monthly blog episode where we highlight a unique micro brewery and a specific line of beer. The folks at Left Hand were gracious enough to send us a couple cases of beer to play with.
Milk Stout is best served cold, real cold, and unlike most other beers, the beer is supposed to be poured hard, directly into the glass upside down. This goes against traditional careful and slow pouring. Knowing this, we built a set that complimented the ice cold and pour hard concept.
"With Milk Stout Nitro, the Longmont company became the first craft brewer in the nation to gas one of its beers with a blend of carbon dioxide and nitrogen. As a result, the rich stout pours creamy and thick out of the bottle, with bubbles that cascade up from the bottom, just like it would if it were being drawn from a nitrogen-infused tap at a bar."-westword.com
Luckily we had exactly 3 beers left over out of 24 to try. They were indeed delicious and incredibly smooth. Overall we had a blast concepting this beer image and are looking forward to this project. We even found a new way to cut the bottom off of a bottle. This was beyond fun and totally random. Check out the video for details.
If you have any micro brewery suggestions for us to shoot, please send an e-mail to gary(AT)rggphoto.com. Keep an eye out next month for an image from us about Urban Chestnut Brewing Company.
