      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Cherry beers

Recommended Posts

I love Sam Adams Cherry Wheat, much better than Berry Weis IMO. They are not beers that someone can drink all night, but a couple at a time are tasty.

Yeah, I remember working at a liquor store and they'd have cases of berry weiss on sale for like $7 or $8 just because nobody wanted the stuff. Way too sweet for me.

Lindemans has a belgian beer out that's a Kriek, cherry flavor. It's pretty good. It's a lambic. Kind of between a beer and champagne. But it'll run you about $10 for a 750 ml bottle.

Sam Adam's makes a cherry beer. I can not drink it. (horible sick )

It makes a good marinade though.

I tried the Cherry Wheat and I didn't like it that much either.

I thought Berry Wiess was no good at all.

Here is my favorite way to drink Cherry Wheat Beer:

Fill pint glass 1/2 way with Cherry Wheat.

Fill the rest of the glass with a dark Oatmeal Stout.

Voila, dark smokey chocolate cherry beer thats not too sweet.

You can try a few different stouts, I found "Goose Island" & "Rhodes Scholar" to work great.

Hope you like it.

It's a good idea when you get those sampler packs via Sam Adams, or Leinie's to save the cherry beer for a friend that keeps trying to bum a beer off you. You might eventually get them to stop.

Thank you, that made me laugh!

I like almost all the wheat beers I've tried. Cherry Wheat no exception, though it's not the best wheat beer I've had. You guys who want to get rid of the Cherry Wheat in the Sam Adams sample pack look me up. I'll trade you a Busch Light for a Cherry Wheat even up all day long.

S.A.'s cherry is the only one out of three I've tried that I like.

If I had to choose a single brewer in America, I'd say blow them all up except for Samuel Adams. I've never met an S.A. brew I didn't like, though I've watched in amusement as a couple lightweights puked up some Scotch Ale. gringrin

In fact, I'm thinking that opening for lake trout tomorrow when it's -40 or colder will call for some real beer at the end of the day. Sam Adams here I come! grin

Have you had any beers from The South Shore Brewry(from Ashland, in your old home state grin). They have them at Mike's. I drink the Honey Pilsner and the Nut Brown Ale. They are both good.

I can't believe an old 'sconnie boy would sacrifice Lienie's brewery for SA laughgrin

This reminds me of a Married with Children episode with Al & the NoMaaM group, haven't seen a show in years but I think they were in the garage trying beers then one of the guys gets a fruit beer, they laugh at him, try it and all get hammered

I tried that with my father-in-law. He drank all of them, complained about each one, but kept grabbing more. He was hoping they'd get better after 3 or 4. He said they didn't. Last time he visited, he brought his own beer. Mission accomplished!

I'll have to try mixing the cherry with a stout of some sort. Another good mixture is 1/2 Leine's Sunset Wheat, 1/2 Red Lager. I don't like either one of them on their own, but mix them together and it becomes one of my favorites.

Isn't there a "Man Law" against putting fruit in beer? crylaugh
Yes there is a man law against this, but it is a rather minor infraction and is often overlooked to avoid men breaking a much more serious man law. Man shall never drink from the dreaded wine cooler.

The New Glarus cherry beers are very good. They brewed an 'unplugged' cherry stout last year that was amazing. You MN guys will have to travel to the dark side to pick up any of the New Glarus beers, only sold here so they could keep up with the local demand.

Bell's brewery in MI also makes a cherry stout that isn't quite as good as NG but very drinkable. I know Zipp's in Minneapolis has it their cooler.

As far as the Linies or Sam Adams fruit beers taste more like a wine cooler than a beer. Cherry beer is suppose to be tart not sweet. The amount of cherries needed per bottle pushes the store price to about $15/six pack.

It's no trouble at all to go back to my home state (LaCrosse native) to try out beers I haven't had before. While wheat beers tend to be sweetish (Sam Adams Cherry Wheat no exception), I like 'em best with a little more zing. A cherry stout sounds like just the ticket. smile

Casey, I like the South Shore Brewery beers quite a lot.

I really like the wheat beers, and I am a fan of the Sam Adams Cherry Wheat. However, as far as fruited beers go, my favorite is Henry Weinhard's Blackberry Wheat. I haven't ever found it around here...Denver is the closest I have come across it.

    • The only problem we have had with the kdrill is today we had ice build up between the center point cutter and the first tooth on the chipper blades. Once I cleaned that out it drilled like day one. Don’t need any other auger. 
    • How much ice do you need to feel comfortable putting your perm shack out there? I have a 4x6 made from 2x4s and thick plywood. Its on the heavier side. Im thinking 7-8 inches.
