Brewer: Other Half Brewing
Style: American IPA
Avid cyclist (and Other Half brewmaster and co-founder) Sam Richardson says he's enjoyed many a shower beer after a long bike ride. But unlike most shower beer enthusiasts, Richardson looks for headier fare. "My favorite shower beer ever was a Hair of the Dog Fred," though he admits the 10 percent ABV strong ale is too rich for regular use. "Usually I like IPAs, and cans of Hop Showers are the best for showering," he says, "and not just because of the name."
