You Can Bathe in Beer at this Japanese Resort

by The Drink Nation on Sep 5, 2018 in Beer

A resort in Japan is combining a natural hot spring with beer to create a one of a kind "beer bath," according to Delish and US Weekly.

The Misugi Resort, which is about two hours away from Kyoto, is home to the Hinotai Onsen, a luxurious hot spring that the resort combines with Japanese craft beer so that guests can experience a unique beer bath within the spa. The bath, which is the color of a dark lager, contains enzymes from malts that supposedly are good for your skin, alongside live yeast and carbonic acid.

 

美杉リゾート大浴場片側リニューアルが完了しました! 今回の目玉はなんといってもビール風呂です! 火の谷温泉×火の谷ビールのコラボ風呂です。 おそらくビールと温泉の組み合わせは日本初?! 一定の間隔で伊賀焼の樽風呂にビールが流れ込みます。 それ以外にも美杉のヒノキを贅沢に使ったヒノキ風呂や、 かつて活火山だった大洞山の火山岩を使った露天風呂などなど。 詳しくはホームページをご覧ください! ※片側のリニューアルでございます。 1日ごとに男女の入れ替えがございます。 日帰り入浴でいらっしゃる方は事前にお問い合わせください。 ※温泉で希釈されているためアルコール度数は0.03%未満ですが、 未成年者の方、妊婦の方、麦などアレルギーのある方のご利用はお控えください。 ■大浴場片側リニューアルご案内ページ http://www.misugi.com/beer-furo.html #美杉リゾート #火の谷温泉 #火の谷ビール #ビール風呂 #misugiresort #hinotanionsen

The owner of the resort claimed to Travel + Leisure that the bath offers numerous health benefits, from the antibacterial properties of the hops to the cleansing power of the yeast and CO2's beneficial effects on circulation — and though these aren't yet proven by science, it still sounds like a pretty cool experience. For only $15, you can reserve a 45-minute bath, so if you find yourself in Japan, head to this resort for a relaxing and delicious bath.
