LONDON There are few things in life that sound more appealing than a cold, refreshing beer while you’re standing in a warm shower.
One microbrewery in Sweden has decided to “optimise” the showering-with-beer experience by customising a beer for this exact situation.
“As a brewer I work long and hard days, and when I come home I’m often covered in malt dust my girlfriend actually calls me Mr Malty Pants and the shower is a gateway back to normal society,” Fredrik Tunedal founder of PangPang brewery told Mashable.
“I made to Shower Beer small enough to keep its temperature during the shower, and strong enough to mentally wash your workday off and get ready for a fresh night out,” Tunedal continued.
Tunedal says he let the Shower Beer ferment for longer so it could develop a taste that would be perfect for the showering experience.
“This lets it develop a soapy flavour that in some beers is considered an off flavour, but is just on-point for the Shower Beer,” says Tunedal.
“The beer is heavily hopped with citrus, and has a citrussy, soapy, and somewhat herbal profile,” he continued.
But, there’s another, very practical use for the beer.
“I designed the recipe so that it can also be us as a conditioner, so if you are into looking good rather than feeling good, I’ve thought of you too!” says Tunedal.
After the first batch of Shower Beer sold out in one minute, Tunedal is currently fermenting the second batch of the product, which will soon be available to purchase in the UK and U.S.
