Who’s your hero? And a conversation with a real one from Folds of Honor (November 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 is not so much about beer. Well, OK Budweiser Black Lager, but… it is all about heroes. Once again, Katcef Brothers and the Military Bowl have teamed up and want to know who your hero is so you can have a shot at a VIP experience at the Military Bowl. See below for dates and locations!

But we also talk to a real hero today. Rocky Sickmann was a Marine who spent 444 days in captivity in Tehran in the Iranian Hostage Crisis back in 1979.  Today, he is retired from a civilian life with Budweiser and spearheads the company’s relationship to  Folds of Honor which provides scholarships to to the millions of military dependents affected by war.As Rocky says– Freedom is not free.

Rocky will be at the Navy SMU game this Saturday where he along with Katcef Brothers will present a check to Folds of Honor!

Please have a listen!

Summer is waning! But we’re not letting go just yet!  This month we talk about a flavorless spiked seltzer (let that sink in for a minute)– Bon & Viv Spiked Seltzer Classic. And it truly is flavorless! We talk about our favorite summer brews (Devil’s Backbone and Troegs) and wrap it up with just a taste of fall with a brand new cider from Bold Rock–their seasonal Harvest Haze! Mixed in we scratch our heads on the success of Naturdays and the new Natural Light spiked seltzer! And Bill spills the beans on Capit-Ale–a new collaboration with Devil’s Backbone and the Washington Capitals!

The Guinness Open Gate Brewery and Barrel House (E-141)

John sent Tim, unaccompanied, to The Guinness Open Gate Brewery and Barrel House in Halethorpe to have a pint or two with Ryan Wagner, Brewery Ambassador. Alone. Without any supervision. To a place with Guinness.

When you think Guinness, you think Extra Stout, right? You’re not wrong, but you need to hear about what the exquisite, new experimental beers coming out of the new Guinness Brewery right near BWI Airport. This brewery has a bar with it’s own two-floor museum of the history of Guinness. Ryan Wagner, takes Tim out of his comfort zone of Miller Lite to sample the newest offering from the old sod.

This month, not so much beer; but more of the events where you can drink some beer!  Budweiser is a lead sponsor for the Chesapeake Bayhawks and will be hosting Hawk-Hours at various locations around town on Fridays before home games–first one is THIS Friday at Federal House! They are all in on the Outlaw Jam toward the end of July. Budweiser and Babe will be prominent in the Inaugural Annapolis Pride Parade and Festival and of course everywhere for your Fourth of July celebrations!

OK, OK, so we did have some beer.  In honor of the anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing 50 years ago—The new Budweiser Discovery Reserve Red Lager (man that will be a tough one to order…let’s go with “Bud, double R, L”) in the stubby bottle! And in keeping with giving back, Budweiser is donating up to $100K to Folds of Honor. Spoiler: I am not a fan of the darker beers, but this one was on point!
