Anyone else like drinking beer in the shower?

I told a friend of mine I do this regularly. He took one look at me, and told me to seek help. I tried to explain, but he wasn't having anything to do with it. Realistically, this is one of the best ways to relieve stress after a long day of work [get your head out of the gutter].

Hot shower.
Ice cold beer.

It's even better if you can you get a girl to join you [Calling all female otters!]

So does anyone else enjoy doing this? Or am I just an outcast otter.

I can only see this working if you have one of those beer hat things with the tubes. Beer in the shower is fine, but you needs your hands free so ya don't drop the soap.

There's a Natty Light billboard in my town that shows a guy's arm reachin from behind the shower curtain, grabbing a beer on the bathroom counter, with the caption "Been there"

Hell Yeah!

This was a lacrosse tradition at my undergrad, freshman (if on the floor) had to 'beer' the showers. There are few things better than a steamy hot shower and cold beer after a practice/game. I preferred hard liquor when I drank, but I always had room for a shower beer or three. It was important to use bottles though, so you wouldn't get water in the beer. On weekends I'd change over to a screwdriver or vodka cranberry, since it went better with breakfast...thank god for cups with lids!

I think I've only had a few shower beers since leaving undergrad ( ), but I may have to bring back the tradition! I go through less than a 6-pack a month at the house, so it might be a good way to try some new micro-brews.

Any suggestions?

I'd be afraid I'd drop my glass and cut myself.

Something hoppy...like Stone Brewing Arrogant Bastard Ale, Victory Hop Devil, or Victory Hop Wallop.

Hell yea, I do it if its a weekend day, and I have already started my drinking. Since I usually will take a shower later in the day if I am going out, I will just bring my beer(s) with me, and I can even rest it on the towel rack next to the shower, so it will not get water in it. I also take my morning cigarette into the shower, and smoke it while I let the water run, then toss it in the toilet.

Have you had the oaked version? I've been drinking it a lot lately - a smoother, mellower flavor, but still with all the hoppiness intact, albeit with some sweet (not fruity) overtones.

No problem with the beer, but I <i>hate</i> it when the toppings start washing off the pizza.

only with canned beer. Never tried it with a bottle.

In high school, I used to shower with the lights off and put a towel down so I could block out all light. Then, in college, I would bring coffee in with me to the shower and sip it (leaving it on the sink or something). Then I started doing the shower in the dark with the coffee. I pictured a burglar or someone breaking in, hearing the shower on and seeing that the lights were off.....and curiously entering and turning onthe lights to see a dude standing in the shower with a cup of coffee in his hand taking a shower in the dark. good stuff

haha, last time I had a beer in the shower was sunday, and it was a Stone Oaked Arrogant Bastard. Too bad it was the last one, and now I am gonna go back to the ruination.

This is common tradition in mt. biking too, especially after a 5 hour ride. Well, its tradition to have a cold one waiting for you as soon as you get off the trail first, then another when you are unloading the bikes at home, then the third while in the shower.
