Chicago among cities where beer bath spas are popping up

CHICAGO — A spa in Chicago offers bear soaks to its customers.

That’s a tub with extracts of hops, barley, and brewer’s yeast that Piva Beer Spa claims has health benefits to customers, particularly to their skin.  According to their website, the beer soak exfoliates, improves elasticity, helps clear acne and hydrates the skin.  They also said the soak benefits hair, by conditioning it and stimulates hair that is thinning.

Another similar spa has opened in Florida, according to a report by WPBF-TV.

According to the report, the spa owner in Boca Raton, Florida calls it the “fountain of youth,” claiming you’ll look younger after one bath in beer. The ingredients include beer, but aren’t just beer.

The treatment costs $80.  For that you get a spa treatment and a 50-minute soak in a copper tub.
