Left of the dial cans

To Our Notch Brewing fans,

Notch is issuing a voluntary product withdrawal of two beers that were canned in August and September that have an unpleasant taste and aroma. Please note, there are no health or safety risks involved with the consumption of this beer.

Affected brands include cans of Left of the Dial. Kegged Left of the Dial is unaffected and may still be enjoyed.

The affected beers have a noticeable sulfur-like aroma. Our Quality Assurance team has instituted new, rigorous protocols to prevent this from occurring in the future.

Notch is rapidly working with all distributors and retailers to remove all questionable beer from our system, including the destruction of identified beers at our brewery, removal of these brews from our distributors’ warehouses, and return of the beer from retail locations. With fresh beer being packaged starting in October our distribution network will begin working to replace beer quickly at that time.

The affected batches have the following package dates found on the bottom of cans:

Left of the Dial 12-pack cans with Best By dates from Feb 29 to Mar 4 2020

Left of the Dial 6-pack cans with Best By dates from Feb 29 to Mar 4 2020

Consumers who are in possession of the affected packages can exchange it for a full refund. To do so, please go to and fill out the required information, including submitting a picture of the can production date found on the bottom of the can. You can also send us the can information with a return address in the regular mail to get your refund. Send to: Notch Brewing, 283R Derby Street, Salem MA 01970. Please contact us at with any other questions or comments.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused our Notch beer drinkers. Thank you to those customers that have helped us identify the problem and allow us to act immediately to solve this issue. We hope to have you enjoying fresh, delicious Left of the Dial cans again in October.


The Notch Team
