Left Hand Brewing Company has rolled out a new year-round lager which is dubbed the 1265 Pilsner. The new beer is named in honor of Left Hand’s brewing location since 1993, 1265 Boston Ave. in Longmont, CO, and is shipping out now across the country.
“We have a deep tradition of brewing lagers,” says Eric Wallace, co-founder and president of Left Hand. “My passion for beer started while I was living in Germany and experiencing beautifully crafted traditional pilsners. Our brewing team created a beer that really exemplifies this classic style, and it has quickly become a favorite of both our employee owners and our guests in the Tasting Room. It’s a beer deeply rooted in our history, and we’re so proud of it we named it after our home.”
Director of brewing for the company, Jeff Joslin says the beer exhibits a refined hop profile of orange and lemon zest complemented by a touch of lager sweetness. It is made from Pilsner malt and a trio of hops, including Sterling, Cascade and Citra, that were used to bring additional character to the new launch.
