Introduced to the state just over a month ago and distributed by Louis Glunz Beer Inc., a 136-year-old fifth generation family owned and operated company, Cheech & Chong's High & Dry has rapidly become a symbol of Chicago's progressive palate and its embrace of innovative cannabis products. The rapid acceptance and enthusiasm for these THC-infused beverages reflect a cultural shift from prohibition to recognition, positioning THC seltzers alongside alcohol as an alternative beverage choice for responsible adults.

Brandon Harshbarger, President of Cheech & Chong's Global Holding Company, commented on the market evolution, "Chicago's embrace of High & Dry speaks volumes about the changing tides in consumer preferences and social norms around cannabis. Our seltzers meet a growing demand for high-quality, responsibly produced THC-infused beverages that offer new options to the consumer."

Jerry Glunz, President at Louis Glunz Beer Inc., shared his thoughts on the city's reception of Hemp Beverages, "We fought hard to bring this category to the city of Chicago, and the overwhelmingly positive response has made it all worth it. The opportunity to provide Chicagoland with consistent and responsible products has become a duty to build this growing industry standard. Consumer enthusiasm has exceeded all expectations, confirming that Chicago is not just ready but eager to embrace Hemp Beverages."

Wesley Phillips, Business Development Manager at Louis Glunz Beer Inc., echoed Jerry's sentiment and added "Cheech and Chong represent a singular legacy that's critical for the broader development of the entire Hemp Beverage category. They are incredibly valuable stewards as we veer into a post-prohibition world that has been delayed for far too long. Through their characters and their lives, they have embodied a spirit of both merrymaking and engagement. Cheech & Chong bring more than 50 years of their unique brand of authentic advocacy, and authenticity is what Chicago is all about."
