Left Hand Brewing founder Eric Wallace on beer, racism and corporate responsibility

Beer and community building go hand and hand, says Eric Wallace, founder and president of Left Hand Brewing Company. Over the years, the Longmont-based business has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for issues as varied as theater, flood relief, the YMCA and, most recently, Intercambio, an organization teaching English as a second language. In advance of the June 21 Culture Jam, an intercultural night of music featuring Ozomatli, Westword spoke with Wallace about his business, corporate social responsibility and how beer forms communities.
