What’s in a name?: Left Hand

CATEGORIES: Beer   Feature  

In Colonial days, the left hand was considered “the devil’s hand.” But being evil, or (as the T-shirt goes) “in the right mind” or even remotely ambidextrous has nothing to do with how Left Hand Brewing Co. earned its name. It is, in fact, named for the Southern Arapahoe Indian Chief called Niwot, meaning Left Hand in the Arapahoe language. He and his tribes used to spend the winter in Boulder County, where the brewery is located. When co-founders Eric Wallace and Dick Doore originally came up with the idea to start a brewery, they were living in a small town called Niwot, between Longmont and Boulder. So, now there’s a town, a creek, a canyon and an award-winning brewery named after the chief.
