Left Hand Brewing's handy work

Left Hand Brewing’s handy work

Left Hand Brewing Company, as well as a good number of other breweries, have been affected by the severe flooding that started Thursday, and many will be closed until weather conditions improve.

“We can report that we believe the Tasting Room is dry, thanks to our grain bags! It is possible the cooler has been breached – two feet of water is currently rolling against the door,” the LH team said on their Facebook Page this morning.

We here at the Wagon hope everyone can still enjoy the festivities this weekend that haven’t been rescheduled. We urge everyone to stay safe, especially those in the areas that have been affected the most by the flooding.

Stay inside and grab a cold one or venture out to your closest bar (if you can). Cheers and good luck!
