Today, Chris and Mandie talk about all the stuff they’ve been up to, both drink beer with Sorachi Ace hops (just realized that), their mutual love for The Strumbellas, and lots about good glassware for beer.
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.
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.
Now containing 13% more musical references. Chris has a jazz voice and a minor nipple injury; we talk seasonal beers; the 4 top 3 bars Chris needs to visit; Sight Glass Videos; stupid Alberta; stupid The Beer Store; and Christmas excitement (stuffing! baking! beer festivals!).
In today’s episode, Mandie and Chris discuss the weather (seriously); new beers they’re digging (and one very old one); traveling; Ballast Point being bought by Constellation; how Left Field develops recepies, how they prioritize business decisions, and advice to aspiring brewers; and Christmas!
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!
