The “sweet but strong” pale ale is the brainchild of Swedish brewery PangPang and creative agency Snask.
Struggling for time before a night out? Or just enjoy the luxury of cracking open a cold one whilst freshening up? This is the perfect answer.
For anyone who hasn’t enjoyed the sheer satisfaction of the humble shower beer, I advise you drop everything and give it a go now. It’s genuinely wonderful. A kind of outer-body experience.
Served up in a small 18cl bottle the 10% shower beer is designed to be drank in two or three gulps, before it gets too warm. It was released last month as a one-off but a second run is upcoming thanks to its popularity.
What makes it a shower beer?
When does a regular beer become a shower beer you ask?
Speaking to Munchies, PangPang brewery founder Fredrik Tunedal said the beer was brewed specially to develop a flavour suited to the shower setting.
Thanks to a combination of Earl Grey Tea and Bergamot the end result is a fruity and citrusy flavour. It’s described on the website as “the ultimate pre-game beer that will set you on the right track for the night.”
It can even be used as a conditioner too.
