CRABCAKE: Here are your summer beers, but remember to drink wiser! (May 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 the summer beers of which many don’t really seem to be beers at all!  As for the beer… on tap (pun intended) is the line up of Stella, Floyds, Innis and Gunn, New Belgium, and Troegs! Warning, we go off topic quite a bit, but as Lauren said…have a great summer but “drink wiser” and be safe! 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 month, Lauren Hamilton and Cassie Mabery joined us to talk about Valentine’s Day and St. Paddy’s Day in Annapolis.

This month, we rehash some of the SuperBowl ads (because the game was horrible), Stella Artois and the #PourItForward initiative with Water.org. We talked about new beer with hibiscus (go figure) and new summertime brew from Natural Light and #Naturdays.

Finally, we talk St. Paddy’s in Annapolis with the 5th Annual Shamrock Stroll, the Hooley, the parade and the newest addition–Shamrock the Dock!

Have a listen and get prepared!!

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!

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!
