The big news around the brewery is our collaboration with Left Hand, our cream stout, Ties the Room Together.
Well… the wait is over! Ties the Room Together hits the Tasting Room on Friday.
How many of you Big Lebowski fans have only seen the movie one time?
Exactly. No hands. No one. No one has ever seen The Big Lebowski only one time. Nothing so quotable could possibly pass by with only one viewing.
In that vein, why would we only brew Ties the Room Together once? Even Maude would find that ludicrous.
And we’re pretty sure that most of our fans would agree. The response to Ties the Room Together was overwhelmingly positive.
“Sales and marketing kept getting requests for it throughout the summer, asking when it was coming back,” says Innovation Director Brian Hink. “We had no intention of revisiting it, but the demand seemed too good to pass up. So, like The Dude, we… abided…?”
So, to keep it easy for all us sinners, we brought it back. It’s available in the Tasting Room and is out for distribution now.
Check out the reviews below!
With the release of our white cream stout Ties the Room Together, you’ve been hearing quite a bit about The Big Lebowski. And for good reason — it’s definitely one of those movies that stays with you. It celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and has remained eminently quotable since its release in 1998.
However, we get that it might not be everyone’s cup of tea… or rocks glass of white Russians, as it were. If you’ve never been able to catch the movie — even in its find-a-stranger-in-the-Alps, sanitized version on TNT — we’ll have it playing during the release party for Ties the Room Together on Friday from 5-8pm.
But… the sound will be off so that you’ll be able to hear Will Knapp play all of the Creedence known to man (and you won’t be able to hear the 260 uses of the f-word…). Fans of the film will undoubtedly show up to the party in costume as their favorite character — as The Dude, Walter, Donny, Maude, Jackie Treehorn, or one of the nihilists — and get the chance to win a CMBC and Left Hand Swag Bag. We’ll have collectible glassware and inflatable bowling, and a great time will be had.
But why? We caught up with the Brew Crew and a couple of folks from over at Left Hand to find out what they love about The Big Lebowski.
If you’ve seen the movie, you’ll love our fan favorites below. If not, swing by the party on Friday, anyway.
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.
