Knowledge of nitro taps is typically limited to those who regularly order Guinness, and craft beer aficionados. However, as nitro is being embraced by more and more breweries, this could quickly change. So what’s the deal with nitro, anyway?
Craft outfits like Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., Sixpoint Brewery, Sly Fox Beer, Yards Brewing Company and more are adding nitro to their arsenals. A strong number of brewpubs throughout the country also offer nitro beers. “It gives complexity to beer,” says Terence Sullivan of Sierra Nevada, which released a nitrogenated stout named Knightro at their pub last year.
