Toronado blowing down wall

You didn't; it was in Eater San Diego: Nice to have fans, isn't it? But they are wrong - you did have an update, in that they are now shooting to open in the summer. Much slower than the original plan, but this seems more solid because they actually have construction company doing work in there now.

Truth in beer reporting and other novel concepts

For the people clamoring for transparency, it pretty much is laid out in the Bio that is one click away from any of his articles: What would you suggest is better? A footnote on every article stating his full time job? I don't think it makes much of a difference, anyway. Stone, Green Flash, Ballast Point - they have all gotten big enough that there is little Brandon could say either way that would make a difference. I don't think he's got a beef with any of the smaller places, so I generally take reports at face value. I *do* think he's been a bit gun shy since Wet-n-Reckless Gate, though, because I've not seen a lot of "this beer wasn't good at all" reports. I think that is only part of the problem, though. In my opinion, it isn't that there is a lot of bad beer (drain pour stuff), but that there is a lot of mediocre beer.
