Chris and Mandie get all caught up on Cask Days and fried chicken; Chris is not a go-getter; Halloween exploits; we love the Blue Jays; home brewing and the “Kuerig of home brewing”; Chris possibly mixes the worst metaphors in podcast history; Alberta has seriously turned inter-provincial beers sales on their ear through taxation, and Mandie thinks it might be from lobbying by the big guys, and Chris agrees; dig Ryan Morrow and Sam Corbeil’s birthday beer 1105; the podcast is officially powered by Bullfrog Power, and Chris gets digital advertising backwards; Mandie is going on vacation, and Chris is not. Get it in your ear holes!
Getting back into the swing of things (see what I did there?), Chris and Mandie talk a lot about baseball, voting, the Mill St buyout, ABI in general, the differing values of success, festivals coming up, and a bit more baseball. Check it out!
In today’s episode, Chris and Mandie talk about recent festivals, another great podcast, a crazy 1990s vintage beer tasting neither of them could legally attend, a list of the 20 best beers in the world, entitlement in the craft beer scene, lots and lots on sexism, both in the world and in the Toronto scene, and their upcoming plans.
In today’s (quiet) episode, Chris and Mandie get caught up, talk about Muddy York (they’re noisy), Aggregate beer rating sites and using Untappd, their average scores of their favourite IPAs from last episode, all that noise about Left Field, raising kids around beer, and some of what they’ve got going on. Now quiet down over there.
In today’s extra-long show in honour of OCB Week (or just becasue we like talking to each other), Chris and Mandie get all caught-up and talk about their respective trips; Mandie geeks out on baseball and Chris gets personal about pens; they talk about what they’re drinking, what they’re loving and the CBAs; *gasp* cloudy beer, “Ontario Pale Ale”, and poor craftsmanship, aka “The Gossip Circle”, OCB Week and their plans, our FIRST CONTEST, and catching up with @LeftfieldWrigley.
Chris is sick, but we forged ahead anyway. Getting all caught up on stuff from the last episode, Chris and Mandie give the (now usual) nod to their friend Mark Zuckerberg, then get into it. Beer sales, growlers, how and why Chris hates social responsibility, why you should clean up your empties and gross stuff that has been found in bottles, what is “craft”, the Molson Indy is the Molson Indy again, more beer sales, and finally the Left Field road trip to buffalo this weekend, and Chris’ trip to Ontario’s Southwest.
In today’s show, Chris and Mandie introduce themselves, talk about Mark Zuckerberg, Chris’ Californian beer tasting at Castro’s Lounge and Mandie’s trip to California, Mark and Mandie’s yet-to-be-picked Basset hound Wrigley and the terrors of hound-ownership, brewery pets, summer plans. Things get political then Chris gets giddy for numbers.
