Surrounded by a sea of greening grass stands a towering mountain of snow — a larger than life reminder of the changing of the seasons. It’s Left Hand Brewing Company’s Hops + Handrails event. Snowboarders and skiers soar through the air, leaving a trail of glittering snow that trickles down over the sandal-wearing, t-shirt-clad group of beer drinkers below. Part craft beer festival, part rail jam, part concert, part block party — it’s the Colorado craft beer industry’s unofficial farewell to the cold weather months, and highly-anticipated welcome to the busy beer festival season ahead.
