Considering that Orange County is the third most populated county in California, it doesn’t have very many breweries. Only one for about every quarter of a million people. That’s shocking, and should be illegal. I’m working on it with my congressman. On the plus side, the breweries that do exist are all excellent. Perhaps it’s just natural selection at work.
So what else is there to do in Orange County? Absolutely everything, so I won’t get too far into it. But if you fancy surfing with Mickey Mouse in the company of The Real Housewives of Orange County, it can probably be arranged.
Now on to the important part…
