We’re now in the heart of winter, a time to retreat inside and enjoy good beer in good company. Undoubtedly kings of combining beer drinking with every activity possible, the Czech Republic is pioneering a burgeoning and popular Beer Spa culture, and the cold of winter is an opportune time to experience one of this country newest leisure activities- Beer Spas. Good for your skin, mood, and thirst, Czech beer spas are a unique way to see more of the Czech Republic and experience another part of Czech culture.
A few notes about what a Beer Spa is- most of these places include a beer spa, offering different sorts of procedures having to do with beer, within a hotel that in some cases is either connected to or affiliated with a brewery. Typically, you can usually purchase a package that includes accommodation, a few treatments, and a meal or two in the hotel restaurant, but every spa will have something different. Normally, one treatment is a beer bath- which is warm bathtub full of a mixture of water, beer, and beer products, either for an individual or two, lasting about 20 minutes, plus a beer each.
Other treatments include massages or hot packs with barley and hops. Some beer spas organize tours with the local brewery, and sometimes only in Czech or German. There’s usually a restaurant connected to the hotel, where you can have breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and sometimes these are included in the price.
