Take a Beer Bath in Denver: A Unique Relaxation Experience


Whether you’re a Denver local wondering about Oakwell Beer Spa’s beer bath or you’re taking a vacation and want to enjoy this unique experience, we’ve got you covered. In this article, we’ll discuss where you can take a beer bath in Denver and what to expect.

What is a beer bath?

A beer bath is a bath infused with beneficial beer ingredients. The experience differs depending on where you are, but at Oakwell Beer Spa, you relax in a cedar hydrotherapy tub filled with warm bubbling water, hops, barley, and seasonal herbs.

Think of it like a giant hot tub with nourishing ingredients that can benefit your mind and body. After a beer bath, most people feel relaxed and their skin feels and looks soft and hydrated.

Oakwell Beer Spa’s signature treatment is the Beer Bath Hydrotherapy, which you can enjoy in a private Beer Therapy™ Room. 

The room gives you access to everything you need for a rejuvenating spa day, including:

  • A bubbly beer bath
  • Infrared sauna
  • Rain shower
  • Wooden relaxation deck
  • Beer-infused cosmetics products

How the Experience Works

If you need to refill your beverage during your session, you can use the ring bell system for a Beer Therapist to top your drink off.

The beer bath blend changes seasonally to include ingredients that maximize hair, skin, and mind benefits. It includes herbs and beer’s main ingredients: hops and barley. 

Hops are the flowers of the Humulus lupulus plant, which are used to make beer. Hops’ antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties help nourish the skin. Barley grain is also used to make beer, and it has nutrients like vitamins and zinc that promote healthy skin. 

Before your bath, you’ll detox in the Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna. Then, you’ll rinse off and relax in the tub with thousands of tiny calming bubbles from the tub’s air bubbler system. 

The Beer Therapy™ Room is a modern, luxurious space that offers enough space for one or two people. You can also book a party package to combine a couple of rooms for more people.

To make the most of your Beer Therapy™ Room session, we recommend the following:

  • 20-minute Infrared Sauna session to sweat out toxins and open your pores soak up the benefits of your warm beer bath
  • A quick cold shower to keep your blood flowing
  • About 40 minutes relaxing in the beer bath
  • About 20 minutes to shower and get ready

There’s a vanity space with everything you need for freshening up, including mirrors, hair dryers, stools, and more. After you’re ready, you can hang out in the taproom for drinks and get a massage in the Relaxation Lounge.

Are beer baths good for you?

Not only are beer baths good for you, but they’re fun. Many people enjoy taking a beer bath because they experience stress relief, joint pain comfort, improved skin and hair, better circulation, and muscle tension alleviation.

Stress Relief

Have you ever felt amazing after a long, warm bath? Studies show that whole-body immersion in warm water improves physical health and emotional well-being.

When hops, a natural sedative, are in the water, you experience even more relaxation and stress relief.

Reduce Joint Pain

If your joints ever bother you, a bath infused with beer might be the solution. Warm water acts as an anti-inflammatory and can be a remedy for joint pain, which is why it’s a popular treatment for arthritis. As you soak in a beer bath, the force of gravity pushing your joints is released, alleviating the discomfort. 

Improved Skin and Hair

Because beer is packed with nutrients, it can help with skin irritations, improve hydration and natural shine, and reduce the effects of aging. As you soak in warm water, your pores also open up, allowing your skin to fully absorb the beneficial ingredients. 

Better Circulation

Optimal blood circulation is necessary for overall health. As you relax in a warm beer bath, your blood vessels expand, improving blood flow.

When blood and oxygen flow easily through the body, your organs can function more adequately. Your body can heal damaged cells and remove waste, leading to better sleep, focus, and recovery from illness.

Relieves Muscle Tension

With improved joint pain and circulation, you can also expect muscle tension relief when you take a beer bath in Denver. As your blood flows, the elasticity of connective tissues increases, loosening spasms and tension around your muscles. This is why people who play sports can benefit from beer baths.

Hydration is Essential

As you detox with spa treatments, dehydration can occur. We recommend drinking water and staying hydrated before, during, and after your spa day so you can experience all the benefits and feel great. 

While Oakwell Beer Spa’s self-serve taproom has local craft beer and other tasty beverages, we advise against overindulging in beer. 

No Problem if You Don’t Drink Beer

We understand beer isn’t everyone’s thing, or you might be in the mood for something else. You can also enjoy wine, kombucha, cider, or other non-alcoholic drinks at Oakwell Beer Spa. 

When you arrive, we’ll give you a double-wall stainless steel tumbler to use during your spa day.

Wear What Makes You Comfortable

The most important part of your beer bath in Denver is to be comfortable and enjoy your experience. You can wear whatever you’d like, whether that’s your birthday suit or a swimsuit. The more skin exposed during your bath, the more nutrients you can soak in.

Beer Baths for Pregnant Women or Those with Medical Concerns

If you’re pregnant or have any medical concerns, please consult your physician to find out which spa treatments are safe for you. 

At Oakwell Beer Spa, you can ask for the heat to be lowered for the sauna and tub to ensure your safety and comfort.

If you have any allergies, please let us know, as the herbal mix for the beer bath changes seasonally.

Soaking in beer ingredients and warm water is one of the best ways to unwind and treat yourself to many wellness benefits.
