L is for Left Hand

I know I’ve had some tasty brews from Left Hand, but I honestly don’t remember them by name at the moment.  My husband says that the “400 Pound Monkey” is a delicious English Style IPA, and to quote him “All of their beers are really solid!”… so I guess that’s good.  I really love their logo, and remember wanting to keep this cap, with the brightly colored hand on it, before I ever tasted one of their beers.

I checked the Left Hand Brewing website and evidently they have an awesome collaboration beer, named Oxymoron, that they brewed along with Terrapin Brewery:

“Oxymoron is the third in a series of one-time releases between our two breweries. A combination of contradictions embodied in liquid form, Oxymoron is an American-style IPA brewed with three German malts, six German hop varities, and a lager yeast strain. Obnoxious yet reserved, elevated yet modest, it’s the embodiment of blending two brewing philosophies together in order to achieve singularity. Consider it an expression of cruel kindness.”

Sounds like something we should check out; if I see one on a menu near me anytime soon, I’m totally ordering one!  Cheers!
