    When I first moved out of my parent's house back in '99 my go to shower beers were Leinies and Rolling Rock. Haven't had a shower beer in a while, as I mostly shower in the morning these days. Daisy Cutter sounds like a good 'un...

    Did it always in college, nothin but Keystone light. It was mandatory for all floor mates to have a beer when shit, shower and shave Fridays before 25 cent beer nights. I still do it, but have the ability to drink good stuff. I caught myself doing it much during octoberfest in my Junior das boot. Very enjoyable!

    There are many interesting things one would enjoy more in the shower.

    This may be the most literal form, I have ever seen, of experiencing a beer. Is this what they intended when crafting it?!?! :grimacing: lol

    Shower beers are a requirement after hockey, golf, hunting, yard work, etc... Anything cold and in a can always hits the spot!

    I take showers in flowing beer, so it's only natural that I drink it.

    Something very clean, filtered and fined, with no secondary fermentation; nothing sour or dank, with barnyard, horse saddle, cat piss, or other funkiness. Keep it squeaky, sir.

    Haven't done it before, but I remember finding Corona bottles in the community shower in college.

    There seems to be two schools of thought on the shower beer. There are those who consider it controversial, unnecessary, and/or sophomoric. Then there are the enlightened among us who consider the venerated shower beer a true privilege, something to be savored and properly appreciated. That said, I'm not one to shy away from a crispy and clean Pilsner in the shower. I enjoy the dichotomy between a cleansing hot shower and a cold, effervescent lager beer. For safety purposes, I recommended choosing a canned beverage. And please, enjoy responsibly.

    I think we can all agree that someone needs to brew a beer and call it "shower beer"

    This thread has really opened my eyes. I have never drank a beer in the shower and have never even considered it. I don't think I will partake in the activity but just the fact so many of you seem in favor of this idea makes me laugh. Good times for all.

    You shouldn't drink bottled beer in the shower, the damn thing might fall and break, you won't like that, might get a cut too. So it has to be a can. Anything in a can would work, but Two Hearted is my fav (I would post a pic of me in the shower with a can of Two Hearted but I might get in trouble here, those pics are on a different site.......). I drink it in the shower while I prepare my dinner.

    I've been doing this for a long time and feel 16 oz cans <insert favorite macro> is the best! I know plenty of women who take a glass of wine and a book into a bath and I really see no difference,

    Founder's Harvest ale and Revolution Anti-Hero IPA, straight from the bottle and can! I find that pale ales and IPA's pair with a hot shower for me better than say a scotch ale, quad or a stout!

    We have a big-ass shower, and there's plenty of room to put a cold beer. Recommend this highly. Lighter stuff goes better in my opinion. Corona (yes, really), Goose Island 312, Duvel, any good Hefe.

    I'm not a frequent shower beer enthusiast, only after seriously stressful situations. Last year, I was snowed in at work for three straight days. After that, I left, bought a 12 pack and drank one. Best shave and shower of my life. I had Moosehead. Honestly, at that point the beer was incidental. I just wanted a shower and a lot of beer. Moosehead was good enough at the time.

    I'm getting nauseous just thinking about the last time I drank in a hot tub. About four shock tops(I didn't buy them), half a bottle of Disaronno, and a couple sips of some Jameson had me drunker than I've ever been in my life. PSA: Hot tub drinking is dangerous. You don't have to go anywhere and if you have the supply handy you don't even have to leave the tub until you decide to get out.

    as for shower beers the only one I've ever done was a Bud which was a magical experience. the shower beer, not the Bud.

    Man, when the wifes out of town and I get home from a day of hard work I always have a shower beer. Ten fidy straight from the can was the last one I had.

    Oh god, not this again...

    But seriously, if having a glass of wine in the bathtub isn't weird, then neither is drinking a beer in the shower, and that sounds like a fantastic idea. I'll definitely be trying it sometime.

    I usually reserve the shower beer for the summer after mowing the lawn, working outside or going for a run. Obviously something refreshing works best. I guess my go-to's would be Bell's Oberon, Victory Summer Love or Sam Adams Porch Rocker.

    If i'm in the shower after 12PM there is most likely beer involved. I've had 16oz Nugget Nectar cans and Dark Apparition in there in the last week. Shower beers are heavenly.
