CRABCAKE: Fall beer, Fall fests, and the Clydesdales! (September 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, the team at Katcef is only giving up a taste of the fall beers–they will come out in force next month. But we do try Devil’s Backbone O’Fest and Victory’s Fest Bier.We broke some news about the Clydesdales and this year’s Military Bowl, but we also talked about a bunch of festivals you need to put on your calendar to really experience the fall beer scene!  And in chronological order….

* Friday, September 13 at Buffalo Wild Wings. 5pm to 7pm. The Bud Light Brigade will be there with swag, giveaways, and your chance to win FOUR tickets to see Navy Football take on ECU on Saturday! And, it includes parking.  Bud Light will be around town every Friday before a Navy home game looking to give away the Bud Light Golden Tickets! Keep your eyes peeled for them!

Come along on our beer journey!

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!

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!

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!

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!
