Get Into Your Beer - Literally - At This Icelandic Spa

Do you like to relax with a beer? If so…how much beer?

This June, a beer spa opened in Árskógssandur, Dalvik, Iceland. And this is not some regular spa where you crack a cold one while getting massage. Nope - you’re in the beer.

As the Bjórbödin Spa website explains it: "When taking a beer bath, you bathe in a big tub filled with beer, water, hops and yeast."

It is available for people, one at a time, or two together. There is no age limit for the beer bath because the bathwater is undrinkable, but there is a beer draught at every tub for anybody over 20 years of age.

Curious? See it in action with this video from INSIDER:


After a battery of tests and misdiagnoses, I was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease twelve years ago, and thus began a long battle with trial-and-error medical treatments. I changed my diet several times, even though my doctors didn’t seem confident it would change much (it didn’t), went to physical therapy for pain-related issues, and took so many different pharmaceuticals I can’t even begin to recall each and every one. My days were foggy due to side effects from pharmaceuticals, such as steroids, that made me feel worse than I did before I even took them.

Can we see some ID please?
