Stout season is here and Left Hand Brewing Company is celebrating Nitrovember with NEW Milk Stout Nitro cans. Ball Corporation's #WidgetInside technology allows nitro fans to take beer on the go this Nitrovember and enjoy a perfectly smooth and creamy Milk Stout Nitro right from the can.
"Widget technology is important for craft beer drinkers because if you want to experience what you get off the faucet at a good craft beer restaurant or pub, regardless of where you are in the world, you can experience the same thing with the widget," said Chris Lennert, Left Hand COO.
Milk Stout Nitro cans with the Ball widget are the first being produced by Ball in the U.S. Ball's widget looks like a small top hat that is adhered to the bottom of the can, and provides a consistent nitrogen release from the bottom of the can up through the entire beer. This delivers superior results because it ensures an even and consistent release of nitrogen throughout the beer when opened.
According to Melanie Virreira, marketing director for Ball, "The Widget Inside technology was developed to bring the nitro experience to the consumer, regardless of drinking occasion, and ensures the smooth, creamy finish that nitro tap lovers have come to expect."
In addition to Milk Stout Nitro cans, Nitrovember is a great time to appreciate Left Hand Brewing's complete line of nitro beers including limited release Wake Up Dead Nitro, a Russian Imperial Stout, and Bittersweet Nitro, an Imperial Coffee Milk Stout. Regardless of which Left Hand Nitro beer you choose, you'll be sure to "Experience the Experience" of tiny bubbles cascading to nitro perfection.
Milk Stout Nitro cans are available across the brewery's 42-state footprint along with Nitro seasonals and draft. Click herefor more information on Nitrovember events. For more information on Left Hand Brewing, their Nitro series and availability near you, visit www.lefthandnitro.com

For its 25th anniversary, Unibroue launches 25e BLONDE DE L'ENFER, a limited edition just for the U.S.
This year, Unibroue is celebrating its 25th anniversary and, as a pioneer of brewing Belgian style ales in North America, is honoring its roots by offering its US fan base its own take on a classic style, the Belgian strong golden ale.
As is traditional for this style of beer, inspiration comes from hellish demons due to their lust power and the beer's deceitful drinkability. 25e BLONDE DE L'ENFER (Blonde from Hell) is such a wolf in sheep's clothing. It embodies a smooth, balanced beer that is refreshing and easy to drink, but with a surprisingly sneaky 10.5% alcohol which gives it finesse and complexity. It represents the very essence of Canada's award-winning craft brewery, which has embraced traditional Belgian brewing methods since its first brew in 1992.
25e BLONDE DE L'ENFER is a delicious, complex, smooth ale with malty and citrusy flavors, topped with a pale straw head. The subtle balance of spice, malt, and hop flavors, combined with a fine, champagne-like effervescence, makes it the definitive beer for any Holiday feast, pairing perfectly with chicken or turkey and smoked fish. You can also serve it with soft cheeses (brie or camembert) or even with a sumptuous crème brûlée.
"Unibroue has embraced tradition and craftsmanship since its very beginnings," explains Jerry Vietz, Brewmaster at Unibroue. "So, I'm thrilled to offer our American fans an authentic, quality beer for the Holidays, the season for warm gatherings with friends and family."
A pioneer in its field, Unibroue was the first Quebec based craft brewery to offer unique-tasting Belgian style ales in North America, thus paving the way for other talented brewers. In the past 25 years, the team has seen changes and shifts in the beer industry as an opportunity to evolve and reinvent itself, while remaining faithful to its heritage of time-honored Belgian style craftsmanship.
25e BLONDE DE L'ENFER will be available at the beginning of November, for a limited time and only in the U.S. in 12 oz. bottles (four-packs and Sommelier Section variety six-packs), 25 oz. silk screened corked bottles and in Sixtel kegs at Unibroue retailers in the United States, as well as on tap in several bars and restaurants.
