On August 5th, Left Hand Brewing Company’s ultimate music and craft beer experience will bring together some of the most talented cover acts in the country to help raise funds and support for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

For 2017, Left Hand Brewing is thrilled to feature world famous all-female AC/DC tribute band, Hell’s Belles, to headline the event.

In addition, Leftapalooza will include special guests, Colorado’s own The Grateful Dead tribute band, Shakedown Street.

Music will be in the air all day, with the first band starting at noon and the music carrying into the evening, with plenty of local fare, independent craft beer and Left Hand Kid Zone.
