Having a cold beer while relaxing in a hot tub might just be two of the perfect combinations of leisure in the world.
Now imagine drinking the cold brew while soaked in a tab full of warm beer.
The first ever beer spa in Iceland has made this possible, as Bjórböðin opened its gates to customers willing to hop in giant tubs of beer, hops, yeast and water while downing a glass of the brew.
Located on the northern tip of Iceland in the village of Árskógssandur, the unconventional place claims that their services provide health benefits for both the skin and hair.
Each indoor spa house is warmed to 100 degrees Farenheit and can be enjoyed alone or with a friend, The Business Insider UK reported. Two outdoor tubs could be enjoyed by large parties as well, which overlooks a scenic view.
Even better, visitors can avail themselves of a nearby tap of Kaldi beer, given that they’re over 20 years old.
The beer tubs, however, are open to all ages but anyone under 16 must be guided by adult supervision, the report said.
After a 25-minute beer soak, guests are sent to a relaxation room for another 25 minutes to let the beer elements penetrate the skin.
Although the scent of fermented beer might be too strong for some, guests are advised to wait several hours before showering to maximize its benefits.
Aside from its patented beer baths, Bjórböði offers a wide array of local dishes and, of course, more beer to consume. Khristian Ibarrola /ra
