Feeling Dirty? Power Shower With These 5 Beers.

Taryn's Wreckreation Guide

August 22, 2017

I hate showering. Go ahead, call me a dirty hippie. But I trick myself into having a good wash by taking a "Power Shower" after work and bringing a favorite beer into the shower with me. 


As a shameless IPA snob, obviously a lot of my favorite beers are bottled, but with so many brewers canning their beer these days, I can safely Power Shower without the danger of broken glass in the tub! SCORE! I picked out my 5 favorite suds to sip while sudsing myself.   


Farmstrong Brewing Company in Mt. Vernon cans their La Raza Cerveza. It tastes great anywhere you sip it, but there's something magical about taking it into the shower with you after a long day. This Mexican-style amber lager is crisp and refreshing, perfect for unwinding while you scrub-a-dub-dub.


Brewed across the pond in Bremerton, Silver City Brewery's Nice Day IPA will instantly put a smile on your face - just look at the packaging! It's a citrus party in your mouth without being overly aggressive on the IBUs or ABV. A great way to relax and reflect on how awesome you are during a solid loofah session.

The only kind of 6 pack I'm ever gonna have. #sixpack #abs #beerbelly #beer #ipa #silvercitybrewing #nicedayipa #pnwbeer #drinklocal #sundayfunday #dietstartsmonday

Out of Yakima, Bale Breaker has a kick ass pale ale that truly enhances a shower - Field 41 Pale Ale! Smooth AND hoppy? Turns out you can have your cake and eat it, too. A single can in the shower provides instant post-work-day tranquility. 

Beermail from the hometown. Can't get enough of @balebreaker #Field41. Great beer and brewery from the heart of where it all starts - the hop field. #yakima #WAbeer #paleale #instabeer #balebreaker #beer

A passionate member of the Bellingham beer family, Melvin Brewing has some insane IPAs (and you know how I feel about those), but their Power Shower powerhouse has to be the Killer Bees American Blonde Ale. Superior smoothness with a hint of honey, it'll instantly upgrade your average sponging. 


Black Raven Brewing Company out of Redmond started canning an IPA I fell in love with last summer - the Trickster IPA. I've said it's like Christmas in my mouth, satisfying my craving for that piney, hoppy flavor. So bring Christmas into the bathroom and have yourself a merry little shower.

If you go to work somewhat clean and come home completely filthy, clean yourself up with a solid Power Shower featuring one of my recommended enhancements! Cheers!


Happy Adventuring,
