CRABCAKE: Spring Beer and Naturdays–the beer you want to hate! (April 2019)

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….or longer in this case, because..well…beer! In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

Today, we continue our 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.

This month, it is all about spring beers with a bit of Seinfeld, Animal House and Bear Grylls thrown in. As for the beer… on tap (pun intended) is the line up of Bon & Viv spiked seltzer, Agua Fresca, Bold Rock Rose Cider, and Naturdays.  Yes, Naturdays. We all agree it is a beer you really want to hate–but can’t.  Have a listen as this episode unfolds.

A quick note on the sound– we screwed up and forgot a critical piece to the recording process–the memory card. So this was recorded using Plan B–which we always have!

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!

We all know about the big boys of conservation in the area. But you may not have known about the Scenic Rivers Land Trust.  In a nutshell, they work to identify land that can be preserved in perpetuity and then work with the landowners to make it happen. One HUGE success is the Bacon Ridge Natural Area which encompasses nearly 1000 acres of wooded beauty!

And on April 27th, they are hosting several guided hikes in this incredible spot. It is free, but they do ask you to sign up.

Have a listen as we speak with Nina Fisher, the President of the Board of Directors and Sarah Knebel who is the Conservation Director. Learn what they do and what you can do to keep our area as ecologically sound as possible!

Mike Pantelides…Rested and Ready! (E-135)

It’s been almost a year and a half since he left the Mayor’s Office, but Mike Pantelides is back with The Maryland Crabs and he has a lot to say about the last election, his term as mayor, and the current city administration. Is he going to run for office again in the city or does he have designs on higher office? John and Tim tactlessly badger him about his future plans.
