Tub Mug revolutionizes shower beer


We live in a golden age of the shower beer.

Options for combining your post-workout shower with a beer include the Shakoozie and now the Tub Mug.

Turns out the concept of the Tub Mug was created during marathon training, according to inventor Matt Soule.

Soule told me that he originally created the mug for shower hydration when he and his girlfriend were training for the Disney Marathon.

“This convenient shower cup helped me rediscover my lost love of shower beers,” he said.  “In college shower beers were a way of life, and I knew that I stumbled onto something that could be a huge advancement in the shower drinking field!”

His original prototype was made by drilling a hole in a cup and hanging it on a suction cup with a hook. However, this resulted in a cupboard of cups with holes that caused a few ruined shirts.

After some redesigning and painstaking testing, Soule came up with the TubMug, a 22 oz mug that sides on and off a suction cup placed on the opposite side of the shower head. After creating a website, he quickly received emails and orders from around the world.

Rave reviews poured in. Foodbeast called it “shower multitasking at its finest” and Geek Alerts called it a “unique and quirky invention.”

“It was clear that shower drinking was more wide-spread than I had ever imagined,” Soule said.

And now, it continues to help with his training.

“It helps me run a little faster,” he said, “knowing there’s a shower beer in a Tub Mug at the end of the tunnel!”
