Drink, rinse, repeat.

I moved this week. It sucked. But at the end of an arduous few days, I looked forward to rewarding myself with one of the great, small pleasures of this world: drinking an ice cold beer while taking a hot shower.

Alas, this didn't work out quite as I'd hoped. Still, it's the perfect occasion to introduce what I hope will be an occasional feature to put you, loyal Gut Check readers, in the spotlight.

Beer? Boulevard Pale Ale

Good? Perfectly crisp

Which did you finish first? The shower. No hot water!

Do you, too, enjoy the occasional (or frequent) beer in the shower? Drop me a line with "Beer in the Shower" as the subject heading, and you may be featured on this very blog!
