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!

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!

This month, Lauren Hamilton joined us again and brought along Mike LeViseur from Katcef and Josh Barr from The Military Bowl!

Four years ago, Katcef came up with an idea to honor heroes in the lives of everyday people. Who’s Your Hero was born. Four years later it is kicking off again on November 11, 2018 at 1pm at Heroes Pub in West Annapolis. Budweiser has forged a new partnership with Jim Beam and created Bud Copper Lager for a limited time. And finally, Josh Barr is one of the movers and shakers of the Military Bowl and we talk about the game, the parade, the Clydesdales, and all of the excitement surrounding this New Year’s Eve event!
