CRABCAKE: New Year, New Beer. Winter beer, wings and the SuperBowl (January 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, Lauren Hamilton joined us as always and brought along Bill Catron again and this time to talk Superbowl–Dan Valente.

This month, Lauren scores 5 out of 5 on the John approval scale with samples of Rogue’s Yellow Snow (my fave), Bold Rock Cider with Ginger and Tumeric, Victory’s Winter Cheers, Blue Point’s Shore Thing, and Goose Island’s Next Coast IPA. If I had to rank them.. Yellow Snow, Shore Thing, Winter Cheers, Next Coast. Bold Rock Cider has to be kept apart since cider is so far removed (in my mind) from beer!

Have a listen!

CRABCAKE: Comedy Legend, Tom Papa (January 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 Tim blathers on and the guest is too polite to hang up. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

Today Tim talks with Tom Papa, the legendary comic who will be appearing at the Rams Head on Stage for two shows on January 26. Besides being one of the biggest names in stand-up, Tom hosts his own podcast, “Come to Papa”, is head writer for “From Live To Here” (formerly “The Prairie Home Companion”), a screenwriter, actor, and author. He does not sleep.

Given the time to talk to one of his comedy idols, Tim squanders the opportunity in order to talk about the agony of raising a teenage girl and the joys of making sourdough bread. Tom was a good sport.

CRABCAKE: Porters & Stouts Oh My! Plus A Miracle on Annapolis Street! (December 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….or longer in this case, because..well…beer! In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

I like beer a lot!  But, I am not a beer snob and a Bud Light will suit me just fine.

This month, Lauren Hamilton joined us again and brought along Charlie Oxendine from Katcef and we’re talking Military Bowl and beer.

There is a lot of pomp and circumstance along with the Military Bowl–a few more times to nominate a hero in the Who’s Your Hero contest. A Miracle on Annapolis Street. A parade with the Clydesdales. A tailgate. A bowl game. And New Years!  And in between all that we try out some great winter beers– Devil’s Backbone Danzig, Dominion’s Morning Glory, and Victory’s Storm King.  (My vote is the Danzig) And they created this crazy concoction called a Sofierita!

Have a listen!
