Maryland Steamed Crabs and Beer

I can't believe that it is the end of July and we haven't had steamed crabs yet.  No putting newspaper on a table and beer on ice. 


Neither Lou or I drink beer with this MD tradition but lots of people wouldn't
eat steamed crabs without a brew.

And there is a step by step process to "pickin' steamed crabs. 
The link below shows you just how to do it!



  1. I'd like to try a meal like you describe. Not a Texas or Oregon tradition.

  2. I've never eaten crab (unless it came from a can). But we do the same ritual with lobster. Put newspapers down on the picnic table, and you "must" have a cold beer :)

  3. I have never had crab that way I am lazy and buy the whole meat.
    I would drink a glass of whine I do not drink beer.
