Y’all will have to excuse me for a second. I tend to get a little giddy when new breweries become available in our little slice of the world, especially when those breweries are making nothing but highly-rated beverages. Thanks to Ballast Point Brewing out of San Diego, I’m a little verklempt right now. Talk amongst yourselves.
Anyone who knows me is acutely, painfully aware of my fondness for the absurd. Charlie Chaplin – a master of the absurd in his own right – once said, “A day without laughter is a day wasted.” If that’s the case, my days have been fairly cost-effective lately.
There’s an elephant in the room that many are very reluctant to talk about. It’s a polarizing issue that you’re either for or against with very little middle ground. It’s been lionized and demonized as much as it’s been supported by logic, history, fact and the occasional comedy. Its name is cannabis.
