Way out west, there’s this brewery. A brewery we wanna tell you about. Brewery by the name of Left Hand Brewing. At least, that was the handle its loving co-founders, Eric Wallace and Dick Doore, gave it, but no one has much use for it themselves. This Left Hand Brewing, they call themselves “Left Hand”.
Now, “Left Hand” — that’s a name no one would self-apply where we come from. But then there was a lot about Left Hand that didn’t make a whole lot of sense to us. And a lot about where they live, likewise. But then again, maybe that’s why we find the place so darned interestin’.
They call Longmont “The Long Apple”. We didn’t find it to be that, exactly. But, we’ll allow there are some nice folks there. ‘Course, we can’t say we’ve seen London, and we never been to France. And we ain’t never seen no queen in her damned undies, as the feller says.
But, we’ll tell you what — after seeing Left Hand and this here story we’re about to unfold, well, we seen somethin’ every bit as stupefyin’ as you’d see in any of those other places. And in English, too. So, we can die with a smile on our face, without feelin’ like the good Lord gypped us.
Now this here story we’re about to unfold took place over the past year or so. We only mention it, because sometimes there’s a beer… We won’t say the best beer, ‘cause what’s “the best”? But, sometimes, there’s a beer. And we’re talking about a beer from Left Hand and CMBC, here. Sometimes, there’s a beer, well… it’s the beer for its time and place. It fits right in there.
And that’s Ties the Room Together, in Longmont and in Cape May.
But, sometimes, there’s a beer… sometimes, there’s a beer….
Aw… We lost our train of thought here. But…
Aw, hell. We done introduced it enough.
