Beer Soap: Now You Can Smell Like a Brewery Without Visiting One

The fine folks over at the Brooklyn Brewery obviously have a problem.  Their obsession for beer has led them past the kegs, beyond the bottles and straight for the showers.  That’s right, Brooklyn Brewery now sells beer soap, perfect for making you crave a chocolate stout at 6:30 in the morning.

The soap comes in three “flights,”  each made using a different style of Brooklyn beer.  There’s a Lager, a Brown Ale and a Chocolate Stout.   Too bad they don’t make an IPA, so I could bitch about how it outsells all of the other varieties even though it’s not my favorite. 🙂

Pair this stuff with bacon soap, and there’s no reason to ever leave the shower.

    Great find Jim!

    The only thing I’d need to add to that soap buffet would be Caffeinated Soap (http://www.thinkgeek.com/interests/gamer/5a65/). Some addictions need to be cleansed first….

    Cheers!

      Yes and my poodle’s too – it’s in the “pets” section!

        Well Hell if it’s good enough for the dog, then we should all use it!

    When you’re done showering with the beer soap, you can put on some Oskar Blues Old Chub Stick lip balm and have a very beery day! 😉

      For the Beer Geek who has everything! 😉

      Wow, nothing like having the smell of beer under your nose all day to aid in concentration during work. I’d probably just stare at the clock, waiting for it to hit 5!

    So when the wife asks me “what are you doing in the shower that’s taking so long”, I know have an excuse. Thanks Brooklyn.

      I was under the impression that beer flowed out of your shower head, John.

        No, Tom Jones sweat flows out of my shower.

          That explains why women keep throwing their underwear at you!

        In all honesty, beer showers are one of my favorite past time if I drink it out of the bottle (rarely ever). It’s almost like the hot tub effect.

    Hells yeah! No need for IPA soap… just use a beer soap and a hop soap in the same cleansing.

    Hells yeah, buddy. The ultimate soap trio… beer, bacon and hops.

      Or squeeze a grapefruit over your head before you rinse…

        Amarillo hops don’t have a grapefruity aroma… it’s orange/mango. Hop shampoo… w00t.

    I make a hop deodorant as I hate the smell of all deodorants on the market, it’s very easy to make

      I know a few people who’d like to lick your armpits…

    This reminds me of a great homebrewing story. One morning we woke up to what sounded like a gunshot in our bedroom but turned out to be exploding bottles of homebrewed Chocolate Chili Porter. We grabbed the bottles and started popping them open in the tub which was pretty impressive since of the beer managed to hit the ceiling. Then I took a shower and went to work as usual. While sitting at my desk I started smelling the beer and eventually realized it had gotten in my hair! So I had chocolate chili porter scented hair all day.

      Nice – a beer shower!

    A lot of breweries seem to be doing this stuff now. Cigar City down here has Jai Alai IPA and Maduro Brown soaps. And I think I saw DFH has soap and shampoo.

    • May 3, 2011 at 4:55 pm #

      Yeah, Don posted a link to the DFH shampoo. Oddly, it was for people and for pets.

        My dog hates baths but loves the smell of beer. Maybe she’d like baths more if they smelled like beer!

        • May 3, 2011 at 5:06 pm #

          Or at least she’d enjoy eating the soap!
