Left hand has done it. bottled beer with nitrogen and poors like it was dispensed from a stout faucet.

http://www.lefthandbrewing.com/

picked up a 6er at whole foods, The left hand rep was there and he had said there was a new way of bottling that made it possible to have the thick creamy head (and cascade) from the bottle with no widget...
I went home and chilled the beer and gave it a shot.
Not exactly like LHMS on beergas, but damn close...and it cascades..pretty cool!
from what the rep was saying theres not going to be distributed to many states but it will be out there.

anyone else get to try this beer?

So did they just bottle it on beergas, or is there something else involved?

Most likely, they either bottle in a pressure vessel or add a measured amount of liquid nitrogen just before capping. Either way, the bottle needs to have a relatively high pressure (provided by nitrogen, which is not very soluble) despite its low carbonation.

I dont know the details, but from what the rep said that it was a new method.
In his words "left hand has come out with new technology to bottle with nitrogen"

He also mentioned that the technology would probably leak and other breweries would do the same for their beers that go good on beergas.

Must be something totally new for them. The 6'r we had a couple months ago didn't have that. But it was a darn good milk stout already.

met the rep at a tasting about a week and a half ago. Left hand makes some good beer. I enjoy pouring the nitro, basically just dump it in a glass and watch it cascade. it think they just came out with the nitro at the beginning of the month

I picked up a 6 of the Nitro a few weeks ago in Colorado. I don't know how they do it, but it's fantastic. Best stout I've had in years. I also had it on tap and the two are identical.

read an article on this last week (sorry, no link) and it said that the cascade effect was primarily attributed to the new style bottle that they are using. theres bumps or waves or something along the inner wall to agitate the beer as it is dumped out.
so I guess I wont be reusing those for my own batch ;-)

they just released it out here last week...

unfortunatley, it was towards the end of the night of tasting about 9 different beers with some friends so it's hard to remember at the moment...

I got a sixer a couple months ago. I like the original better, which is still my favorite stout. The Nitro is up there though.
