CRABCAKE: What’s The Deal With Fall Beers (October 2018)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs! What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

Today, we start a new monthly series (no set schedule other than monthly) about beer.  We have a huge distributer of beer right here in Annapolis–Katcef Brothers Inc. and they have a ton of experts on hand to de-mystify beer for us.  Now, full disclosure–I like beer! I like beer a lot!  But, I am not a beer snob and a Bud Light will suit me just fine.

So this month, I sat down with Lauren Hamilton the High End Brand Manager, Bill Catron the Craft Beer Manager, and Cassie Weithman the Marketing Director to talk about fall beers! Well…and also to drink them!

These guys helped take the mystery out of beer for me and on deck today was Spaten Oktoberfest, Troegs Hop Knife, Goose Island Oktoberfest, Victory Festbier, Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale, and Elysian Night Owl.

Come along on our beer journey!
