The creators of Birdie Juice Beer recently celebrated a deal made on CBC’s Dragon’s Den worth $200,000 to expand the brand across Ontario, and hopefully to other provinces. Farm League Brewing in Cambridge is owned and operated by Collin McKinnon, Matt Boismier and Mike Mayo. Ultimately, they secured a deal with beer baroness Manjit Minhas worth $200,000 as an investor in the Birdie Juice brand. “Naturally we knew working with someone like Manjit would make the most sense because of her background in beer,” McKinnon said. And with the recent surge of indoor golf simulators, they also hope to one day open their own fully branded Birdie Juice golf simulator.

A new Statistics Canada report released Monday reports total wheat production fell nearly seven per cent in 2023, ending at 32 million tonnes.

From harvest to store shelvesStuart Smyth, a professor of agricultural and resource economics at the University of Saskatchewan, said lower crop yields can contribute to a bump in prices at the grocery store. Cereals Canada is now busy promoting the good quality of this year's wheat crop, despite the rough growing season for some producers.

Coco the orange tabby, a resident of (ahem) Dildo, Newfoundland got freaked about by a dog in her yard so she quickly escaped to the top of a utility pole. After an hour, Coco's human Alice Reid climbed up a ladder leaning against the pole but couldn't reach her. "We tried a board on the ladder, and he tried a few times himself to get down but he was too afraid," Reid said. But once he got close, Coco leapt off the pole on her own and apparently stuck the landing. "Coco was recovered and is back home enjoying sleep and treats in perfect health — although Reid said he likely used one of his nine lives," reports CBC.ca.
