I stopped at the adult beverage store on the way home last night - found FAT TIRE in cans! Another quality beverage option when on the water or ice!!

While working in Oregon everybody had it on tap...yummy.

Next thing you know it starts showing up in bottles around here, nice! That stuff really knocks me in the head the next day though...OUCH!

Does anyone else think that beer in cans tastes different than beer in bottles? I prefer bottles but I do understand the convience cans bring to the table, weight, clenup and they will pay you for recycling them. I just think beer tastes better out of bottles. What do you think?

I wholeheartedly agree: Bar Tap, Keg Tap, Bottle, Can, Plastic Bottle in that order.

Bar tap , bottle, can , keg , plastic.

This is the reason I have a bar at home for my homebrew. Better to bring a fresh poured growler rather than anything canned.

I like drinkin cans of PBR and the like on hot summer days. In the winter though i really can go for stouts and rich-bodied ales. Give me a Bell's Two-Hearted and i'm good to go.

As a tradition exclusively for hard water fishing, a buddy and I nip on Blackberry brandy. I hate the stuff but who can argue with tradition.

Awesome! I had this tradition with my grandpa. I can't say I like the stuff but you can't argue tradition to a 76 yr. old man. wink

Anyone else ever have Snowshoe Grog? As much as I detest BB Brandy, Grog was the worst.

Glad to hear Surly is in cans though. I much prefer bottled beer, even if it's the mass marketed swill. There is precious little good beer served in cans.

I usually go with the 25 oz. St. Pauli's or Becks. They don't freeze as fast. I start with them at room temp if I'm going out with the portable.

Don't care what kind of beer it is as long as its -- ice cold, nothing better that beer that's been out on the ice for awhile.

Blackberry brandy is for "stomach upsets" my elders carried a pint of Peppermint Schnapps, and everyone got a swig!

    • I think just about anything can be smoked. would be easy to get the crappies over dry. they turned out great using the technique above. dang near as good as smoked eggs!  
    • Raised beds, you hear people talk about them but what are they? Depending on how much money you want to spend on material and dirt a raised bed can be just a couple 2x8’s nailed together to waist high beds that you don’t need to bend over to work. Now that waist high one will with dirt is going to cost you some compared to the shallow 2x8 bed. Either way a raised bed does some or all of the following things. It eliminates the need for tilling, as you never step into the bed thus compacting it. When you fill the bed it allows you too put clean dirt exactly where you want it, not on the paths between beds where you walk and never plant. Weed control is much easier. Containing the crop you are growing is much easier. Harvesting is much easier. You can add fertilizer taylor made for the crop you are growing not fertilizing the entire garden that maybe 30% of that you walk on and don’t grow in.   The last few years I have been switching to low raised beds and container growing. A typical 4x8 bed takes twenty bags of dirt to fill or about 500#’s the beds are so fluffy that I can turn them over with my hand or just a little rake. This season I am going to add three more beds which will give me total of 11 and over 50 five gallon containers. Of course if room is not a problem then traditional planting stills works just fine especially for spuds and melons and squash. Just offering other ideas.
    •   But yet Christians claim they do.....  
    •   The one I made called for cumin. I think next time I might do something in between my recipe and this one.
    • I always thought smoking was for more fattier fish such as lake trout, salmon, suckers, whitefish and the like?
    •     This sounds good. Gonna have to try it   Plus the emphasis on vegetables in most Chilis
    • Buy the best door you can afford. I installed a steel clad Peach Tree door on the front of my place mainly because it faces south and there is a big temp difference during the day. I paid 600.00 for it, not much for a door these days but thirty years ago I had the father in law scratching his head when we put it in. My back door is out of the sun and I went with an all glass Morgan door, 300.00 I think it was still looks almost brand new after all of these years. Love the light that it lets it. Both have adjustable thresholds and we keep an eye on the weather-stripping. Stay away from the box store bargain doors unless it is rental property. Another thing is don't go cheap on the lock sets, you get what you pay for. Also reinforce the jam on the lock side while you are replacing the door.
    • Xlake area got about 6" of fluffy stuff, I am told, but I wasn't up this weekend. Looks like Tuesday might add a few more. I might still be able to ride yet
