The act of floating down a river in a canoe or raft while drinking alcoholic beverages. Usually done in large groups. No paddeling is involved unless absolutely necessary. As a practical joke, it is a common occurrance to flip over other canoes. Usually done in a shallow body of water where wading is possible due to frequent potty breaks.
We were all sunburned, wet, and drunk after a long day of cabrewing
canoeing with a keg in the back. especially popular among students in the North, and among male rugby players. the object is to get drunk while sort of splashing around for hours. relatively unsafe, given the large possibility of drowning.
