Just had a great shower beer
« on: February 27, 2011, 09:16:55 PM »
And I had to let everyone know. I just love me a good shower beer. Been a while since I had one. Was freezing the twins off, so I got in a really hot shower, with a Dechutes Inversion IPA, and all was good after.  ;D

I like doing that in the summer after a day of hot yardwork - a cool shower with a Deschutes Twilight, or an Alaskan Summer Ale...or any beer along those lines really

A shower beer...  I never thought of that.  Great idea!

I often hike out across Kilauea's lava fields to photograph and video the active flows.  This often means hiking 10 -15 miles across rough terrain with a backpack full of equipment (and always a widget can of Guinness - Pele likes her stout).

When I get home from an expedition I jump into a steaming tub to soak the miles off of my sore and tired muscles and feet.  It is usually a three-beer soak.  Sweet relief!

"My name is Carl."
"Hi Carl!"
"I am a lava junky..."

I'd like a good soak and a beer right now. Guess the beer will have to do...

Ah, the "power shower," one of those college rituals I still try to follow every now and then. Best done with a tall boy-style can, of course.

I do not drink beer or coffee in the shower for fear of accidental dilution.

I'm more of an incidental shower beer drinker.  If I happen to be drinking a beer when it's time to take a shower, it goes with me. ;)

Tom...you took the thoughts right out of my head.  8)

As a matter of fact the beer came with me to the shower last night. An English IPA.  ;)

Ah, one needs to know how to adapt on the fly.  I like it!

That's why your shower beer should always be bottled or canned. Less chance of stray soap hitting it that way. Also a good reason to make an IPA your choice of shower beers. If soap does land in it, less noticeable.

I misread the thread title-I thought it said I just had a great beer shower, not exactly the same thing as a shower beer.  I love drinking a beer in the shower after a day of yardwork like yesterday, but for me pretty much any beer I drink outside the shower works in the shower.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Hogwash.
You just need more experience showering with your beer youngster. :D


That reminds me, I have two empty pint glasses stashed in the spare cabinet under the sink, not wanting to be seen leaving the bathroom with an empty. ::)  I better get those tonight. ;)

I remember slamming a bottle of Brass Monkey in the shower. Was getting ready to go to the strip club on a Friday night. Woke up face down on the floor of my bedroom. Never even got a chance to pull my pants on... ;D
