a nice head of foam

You all know the joy is that is shower beer, right?

God, I hope so: having a super-cold beer while standing in the shower is one of the most wonderful things about summer. Extraplusgood for having a window in my shower, so I can stand there with the window open, a breeze, a nice shower, and a lovely cold beverage.

(Note: shower wine does not work, nor do shower cocktails. You will get water and possibly shampoo foamy bits in your drink if the shower drink vessel is anything but a can or bottle. I suppose you could drink wine out of the bottle in the shower, if you really wanted to, but I feel that would end badly.)

There's still a good ten or so weeks of summer left, and as I am nothing if not boozily useful, I present the first in a series: Shower Beer Saturdays!

Today's shower beer: um, what do I have in my fridge? PBR? Looks good.


  • Refreshingness: (7)
  • Lack of slipperyness when you are holding the beer with potentially soapy hands: (8) Plus, if you drop a can of beer in the shower, it's less likely to break your toe than a bottle would be, I imagine.
  • Does it smell weird when I drink it right after using my bergamot body scrub?: a little bit, yeah. (6)
  • Bonus round: getting water in the beer does nothing to alter its taste, as PBR is basically water anyway. (+4)
PBR shower beer score: 25 (out of 35)

Girl, go get the Sofia "champagne." Comes in little cans with TINY PINK STRAWS. Perfect for shower champs, which is the perfect shower cocktail.

Also, tetra packs of wine and the wine juice boxes from Target, specifically the white Sangria, are perfect for shower sipping.

I have definitely taken glasses of cava into the shower, and I certainly make a habit of drinking + getting ready for a date or night out. IT'S THE RIGHT THING TO DO.
