Beer in the Shower

I’ve said it before and been met with confused stares but I will say it again: after working hard, a beer in the shower is great. Whether your gutter fell off the front of your house and you had to put it back up, or you are painting your kitchen (both of which I did this weekend), when the shower is cooling you from the outside, a cold beer cools you from the inside. Try it, you’ll like it.

Note to beer nerds: Yes, I know you are not supposed to drink beer freezing cold, it keeps you from tasting the Fuggles etc. – but Beer in the Shower is about cooling you down and the psychological benefits of beer as a symbol of relaxation.

    A cold Red Stripe (unless, as it did yesterday, it costs $9.50 a 6 pack…outrage!) or Hoegaarden in the shower is actually listed in the DSM-IV as the cure for all mental illness incurred during yard/housework. A porter or stout in the shower is contraindicated.

  2. Mike says:

    Yes, agreed, Doctor Stoopis. I followed up my gutter work with Hoegaarden.

    Were you mentally ill? Are you cured? How many lights are there?

    After a victorius and not-at-all-zapped-by-lightning softball game, I tried this “beer in the shower” craze.

    I have to say that it was thoroughly beery and I will tell two friends, and they will tell two friends, and so on, and so on, and so on.

    For a minute there I thought it read “Showring IN beer”.

    I half expected to see some contraption of a shower running off a beer keg.

    Hmmm… now there’s a thought!
