LONGMONT, Colo. — Many in Colorado are proud to be called beer snobs and know something's up when a brew doesn’t pour right.

Left Hand Brewery is voluntarily recalling some of its beer because of overflowing issues. 

The Longmont brewery is recalling Milk Stout Nitro bottles due to a foreign brewing yeast that causes the beer to overflow and disrupt the customary nitro cascade.

Recalled beers include Milk Stout Nitro bottles with best by dates of 10/16/16 to 2/28/17 as well as Milk Stout Nitro that is included in Mountain Mixers, or the variety package, with codes 130B to 242A.

Left Hand Brewery says the foreign yeast came in contact with its house ale yeast during production. The bad yeast increases the carbon dioxide in the brew, causing the overflow issues. There is no public-health danger.

If you believe that you have purchased carbon-dioxide-heavy brews, you can return them to the location where you purchased it. Replacement Milk Stout Nitro will be available in approximately six weeks.
