People Are Bathing In A beer filled hot tub – And We Want In!
It seems a group of Austrians have made all of our wildest dreams come true by creating a beer-filled hot tub.
And while it may not seem the most hygienic way to be drinking beer – we can’t deny the idea is pretty amazing.
Andrea Stigger, who works at the Starkenberg Brewery, Austria, says the beer leaves skin feel incredibly soft and velvety.
The tub, one of seven 13ft swimming pools filled with 42,000 pints of beer, is situated in the brewery itself, in a recently converted room that has belonged to the brewery for 15 years.
Andrea’s boss came up with the idea for the beer filled hot tubs to offer guests a new way to relax, while benefiting from the nourishing properties of beer, which is said to have skin healing properties – including the ability to heal dry skin and psoriasis.
One guest said: ‘What’s especially comforting is the beer smell. It’s strong and it’s everywhere.
‘Sitting in here is just totally normal – like in a sauna or a whirlpool.’
To make things even more exciting, you can order cold beers to the tub yourself from a tap – and while you’re there you can also pour yourself a nice cold beer – because who’d want to drink something your friends have been swimming around in?
And anyway, Andrea says the warmth makes the beer taste a little ‘bitter’.
Cheers. We’re off for a swim in our beer filled hot tub
