Sorry, rubber ducky, there’s a new bath toy in town, and it’s beer.

While everyone hates cleaning themselves, there’s one thing that could make it a whole lot better: Drinking. It’s common practice to sneak a Budweiser or even a Corona in the shower with you, but one microbrewery from Sweden is making a beer specifically for the shower.

“Shower Beer” as it is not-so-cleaverly named is a special beer that’s for the shower. The founder of PangPang Brewery, Fredrik Tunedal, says he came up with the idea after coming home from the brewery covered in malt dust and needing a shower. This beer is an ode to that special time as the water rains down on you.

How is specially made for the shower?

"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,” he told Mashable.

He then goes on to describe the flavor as “heavily hopped” and “citrussy, soapy, and somewhat herbal profile.” Wait, soapy?

Uhhhhhh….

Now this is a pipeline worth fighting for.

As oil pipelines threaten the drinking water and land of the Native Americans here in the states, pipelines in Belgium are threatening sobriety. The world’s first legal beer pipeline in Bruges, Belgium carries 1,000 gallons, the equivalent of 12,000 bottles, of beer an hour from the brewery to the bottling planet two miles away.

This is not the first beer pipeline. There was at least one illegal one operating during Prohibition, in which a 6,000-foot hose was found under the streets of Yonkers, NY in 1930.

This perfectly legal pipeline, however, starts at Halve Maan beer brewery, one of the country’s oldest. It opened in 1856, and thanks to a crowdfunded campaign, the brewery was launched into the 21st century with a brand-new beer pipeline.

According to Atlas Obscura, “The 500+ donors received a priceless thank you gift: free beer for life. Today, visitors can glimpse a section of the pipeline through a transparent manhole cover cut into the cobblestone street.”

Grandfather Opens 32-Year-Old Beer After Cubs Win the World Series

It's been a big night for Cubs fan, who ended a 108-year losing streak to win the World Series against the Cleveland Indians. They're probably thirsty. Thirsty for old beer, that is. 

Ending a streak of his own, this grandfather finally opened a beer that he put in the fridge 32 years ago with a mental note "slam this bad boy when the Cubs win the the World Series." Let's just say, nothing makes a man thristier than their team winning the Fall Classic — thirstier for old beer, that is.

The chickens came home to roost — or the Cubs came home to roost or something —  last night, and he popped the top on this three-decade old Coors Banquet. Complete with pull-style tab can, the beer in question does not even fizz when he pours it into his proud Cubs mug. Reports say that the beer "smells like hell" and probably shouldn't be drunk. 

The family heard those reports, too. It smelled so bad that they wouldn't even let him drink it. After all, why would anyone want to celebrate a World Series win — more than a century in the making — in the emergency room because their grandfather was so thirsty for old beer. 

Be a winner, like the Cubs: Don't drink 30-year-old beer.
