      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 .

Beer of the Summer.....

Recommended Posts

Ok, I will be the first to admit, in the winter I am a Beer Snob. Bottles, taps, and the darkest beers possible. If I can see threw it, it is not dark enough. In the summer that changes, time for can beer, kegs, and the "beer of the summer." Golden draft light, Coors light, there have been quite a few in the past.

Personaly I am a Moose Head guy. It is by far my "can beer" of choice. However, I have recently been "given more time to hunt, fish, and persue other interests." In other words been cut from Full time to Part time (at least I still have a job)and I am feeling the pinch. So now I am on a quest to find something cheap, paletable, and not something that will tear up the innards.

So after a few attempts eeksickeek I have found one I like. Nothern Lager, it is only available at a few stores, but I can get it localy, so I am happy.

So lets hear what you got. What is your "beer of the summer". Cheap and good. I will start.

If I have $$$$ Moose Head in the can $9.99 per 12. = .83 per can.

If I am Broke... Northern Lager can price $11.00 per 24 = .46 per can.

I drink one beer and one beer alone. Natty light!!!! I drink it during the summer and during the winter.As well as spring and fall.. Strait out the can.No cooling needed. I like it warm and that keeps everyone else from drinking all my beer. grin

$14.16 a case. .59 cents a can.... And worth every penny. I know I'm gonna get some flack over this one but thats alright.

Neighbor, I'm much like you. I'm a total beer snob. (Make sure you grab a six pack of Bell's Hopslam while it is on the shelves). However, when I'm low on funds or have to share with friends, I go cheap. I'll agree with the above poster that Natty Light is a good cheap beer. Lots of that in college and I tell myself that I'm really drinking Bud Light in another can. Here are my other suggestions.

Busch Light - Case for $14.00. Not the greatest beer in the world, but it drinks easy. Another college favorite. We bought some on fishing opener a few years ago and everyone talked about not having it in many years. By Sunday, everyone agreed they kind of like it.

Keystone Light - Six 16oz cans for $4.89. A Coors product that is a step above the really cheap stuff.

Miller Highlife - You can always find this on sale for about $14 per case.

Pabst/Pabst Light - See Miller Highlife - I can always find it on sale.

Mountain Crest - When things get really tough on the pocket book, this beer is a lifesaver. Case for $8.96.

Some people go for the Ice style beers for the higher alcohol content. However, I find that it usually goes down the hatch like fish hooks.

I'm a Summer Shandy guy. There's probably cheaper options but it's really refreshing when it's 90 deg. and the normal beer is just drying your mouth out. And I am man enough to admit that I do "Fruit the Beer" from time to time. A little lemon in certain beers takes it to a whole other level. Summer Shandy should hit the shelves in April for the summer!

Neighbor_Guy, I bet I'm the only other guy on FM that knows where your sign-off quote came from-- gotta love MST 3K!

When the wallets full its Blue Moon Belguim ale or Summer Shandy which is already available at Sarracks. But since I'm unemployed when I do buy it's PBR saves a couple bucks.

Does anybody remember Minnesota Brew? Back in the day when we shouldn't have been drinking we could scrape up our carwash tips and get a case at Morelli's for 7.00 oh them were the days. No Wife, No Kids and No Mortgage and $4.25 an hour was plenty.

If my wife would taste it when she drank, ,I would buy better stuff.

Natty light and Busch light for us.

Keystone is pretty darned good also, especially when its on sale for the 16 ouncers.

Dad always said, "There really is no bad beer, some just tastes better than others."

I don't ever let cost get in the way of the beer I want to drink, that is for sure. I drink local 100% of the time so it depends what Schell's, Summit, or Surly have on the market at the time. Lakemaids will be hitting the stores soon, if not already and the summer wheat beers will soon be upon us!

Lost Lake isn't bad for $10 for a 30 pack on sale. In Fargo you can also get a case of about four different kinds of Glueks (sp) for $9-10 per case.

The Lakemaid's are on the shelf now for the opener and rest of summer. Brewed at Schells who teamed up with Rapala. IF you dont catch ANY fish on the boat and you have Lakemaids with you can at least bet your buddy on the biggest fist under the bottle cap, or just catch the old buzz.

Honeyweiss is always my standby in the summer, however Blue Moon and Fat Tire are excellent as well if I don't mind spending a little $$$. I love Shells Carmel Bock as well.

For less expensive beer, we always take some Premo on our fishing trips, that always goes down easy, but isn't watery either. A cold silver bullet is pretty good for a light beer. I think Glueck's makes a Honey bock that is pretty decent.

    • Since the local duck hunting has been so poor lately. On Friday morning, I decided to try to get a bird for my son. Trail cameras have shown birds in the area so we simply put up a ground blind into a secluded out of the wind field corner. We put out 2 hen decoys and waited for first light. We thought we could here turkeys in the trees but it was pretty windy. About 7:45 we definitely heard turkey clucks coming in behind us in the woods. I told Jack to get ready and pointed to the trail I thought they would come walk out on. Pretty soon one flies into the field, then another, then another... Not sure where they were but 9 young Jakes flew in and all  landed within 30 yards. It was pretty cool. Jack had to wait for them to separate as they all made a beline for the decoys. Finally 1 stepped clear at about 10 yards for point blank shot! Small young Jake, put it in the crockpot for the afternoon, made for an amazing dinner!

    • Stumbled on this thread and nice to see that cool truck! That's is a sweet find. Reminds me of the project truck of my buddy's uncle. 1992 F150 2x4 6" suspension lift, Motometal forged wheels, and 33" tires.
    • Sacrilege!! Burn him! Burn him! 
    • Picked up a beat up old snowmobile sleigh with holes and cracks for cheap. 20 years in fiberglass mfg helped a lot! Fun little project to haul the grandsons around for some ice fishing and trail riding.
      Still need to add the windshield. I call it the "Monster Hauler!"
    • Agree to the fact that sometimes things we smoke do add up money wise.  I smoked 35 pounds of goose sausage today for the kid, spent around 100 bucks, trim, seasonings, casing etc.  But......... i got to drink about 13,14 and watch the queens while i did it, thats why I smoke. lol
