HOPDAYS - Forget Champagne, Celebrate With Beer

In most professional sports around the world it is customary to celebrate a win or a championship with champagne. In Germany however, this tradition has been broken long ago, with the local clubs and athletes choosing to enjoy their success with gallons of the much better beverage, beer!

This week on Hopdays, we look back at some of the better beer shower moments from the Bundesliga.

In most cases doing this to your boss would definitely get you fired, but Guardiola doesn't seem to mind a beer shower from Jérôme Boateng.
