It seems like every single day, a new quirky trend emerges. And just as quickly, those trends fade away and die. That’s just the cyclical nature of our society. Everyone’s always ready to move on to the next big thing, and so quick to forget all the silly fads they bought into before.
However, every once in a while, a special trend is born, one that’s just weird enough to capture everyone’s attention and just brilliant enough to hang around much longer than that weird period of time when everyone was jokingly putting mustaches on things. (Seriously. What was that about?)
The shower beer is one of those trends. What is a shower beer, you ask yourself? Simple. It’s a beer that you drink while you’re in the shower.
And why is it so wonderful? Well, that’s what we’re about to talk about.
It’s the most refreshing thing ever.
Beer pretty much always tastes refreshing, but there’s nothing quite like a cold brew in a hot shower. It’s incredible. It’ll change your life.
It’s a great way to unwind after a long, hard day.
You just want to relax after a trying day at work, but you need to take a shower first. Why not do both at the same time? For generations, people have been drinking a beer as a way to chill out at the end of the day. Drinking it in the shower just adds and extra level of luxury.
It introduces something enjoyable into a mundane part of your day.
Do you get excited about the prospect of taking a shower? Probably not. It’s just something you need to get done. However, if you know there’s a frosty beer waiting for you in the shower, it’ll give you a reason to get excited. Who doesn’t need more excitement in their life?
It can be enjoyed with a friend.
Invite your significant other to join you, or a really really close friend. (No judgment, here.) It’s like naked happy hour in there.
It can be shared on social media.
Having a shower beer is the perfect time for a selfie. Just make sure you frame the picture carefully to ensure that you’re not showing anything that shouldn’t be shown before you post the pic.
You can use it as an excuse to try different kinds of beer.
Go to the liquor store and mix-and-match your own six pack with different beers. Every night you take a shower, it’ll be a brand new experience. You might just find a new favorite.
It’s good for the environment.
I don’t necessarily know if that’s true, but it’s certainly not bad for the environment.
There’s a whole community of people dedicated to the practice.
Head over to the Reddit community just for shower beers, and you’ll find a thriving populace of beer-lovers posting pics of their shower beer of the day. (Just watch out for NSFW pics. They usually have warnings to keep you from clicking them on accident.)
It’ll help you put things in perspective.
It’s a small pleasure, but a pleasure nevertheless. Enjoying a relaxing shower beer when you’re feeling down should give you time to think about stuff and hopefully realize that life ain’t so bad.
You deserve it.
With work and school and family and relationships, life gets pretty stressful sometimes! So pop the cap off a cold beer and drink that thing at your leisure while washing off the stank of the day. You deserve it!
