In today’s episode, Mandie and Chris talk about their respective holidays, what they’re drinking, and why they’re sick of people saying Canada lags behind the USA in craft brewing.

Chris and Mandie do a string of non-sponsored advertisements, just because they like things so darn much. Talk about events, freeloaders and actually nice people with charitable requests, then lots on issues contract brewers face.

CPM is actually “cents per mille” or “cost per mille”, and it’s how much a podcast gets paid for every thousand listens.
Left Field is not the only brewery to have been fully contract and moved to fully bricks and mortar brewery. Sawdust City did, as did Collective Arts, and Bell City, and Arch is nearly ready to open, just waiting on some final approvals (brewery is built and ready to brew)

Today Chris and Mandie are trying not to point fingers, and pausing like Pinter wrote the script. Talking babies, how they spent their holidays, best of 2015, and their good and bad predictions for 2016.
