December’s Beer Bath Blend at Oakwell Beer Spa

While you enjoy delicious beer from Living the Dream, you can relax in a bubbly beer bath. Our signature spa treatment is the Beer Bath Hydrotherapy, where your stresses melt away. The tub is filled with vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants from herbs, hops, and barley. The bath offers the ultimate rejuvenation and many health and wellness benefits. The water temperature is set to 95-100° F to keep all the herb’s advantages. Every month, the bath blend changes to use ingredients from one of the featured beers on tap. This December, that bath will use Zythos Hops and Two Row Pale Malt from Living the Dream’s 7 Speed IPA. It’ll also have our herb of the month, Hawthorne Berries. This bath blend offers anti-aging and nourishing properties. It’s also an excellent source of vitamins B & C and antioxidants that fight free radicals!

Can I really drink beer during my spa treatments?

Of course you can! While you kick back in your private Beer Therapy™ Room, you can enjoy a delicious beer from Living the Dream Brewing. The only place we ask that you don’t take your beverage is The Relaxation Lounge, where you can treat yourself to a Zero Gravity Massage.

What spa services do you offer anyways?

Unlike traditional day spas, we offer various unique services and an experience unlike any other. Our spa treatments include Beer Bath Hydrotherapy, Far Infrared Sauna, and Zero Gravity Massage. Your Private Beer Therapy™ Room features a relaxation deck, rain shower, infrared sauna, and cedar hydrotherapy tub.  We also offer group and spa day packages. Check them out here!

How does the self-serve beer wall work?

One of our most fun features is the self-serve beer wall. Best of all, it’s easy to use by following these simple steps:
  1. Use the card you’ll receive when you arrive to unlock the taps on the beverage wall.
  2. Check out the rotating selection of Living the Dream Brewing’s beer. We also have wine and cider if you want something else. You’ll also find tasting notes and the price per ounce with each drink.
  3. Select your drink, scan your card, and pour as much or as little as you’d like. 
  4. When you’re ready to check out, take your beverage card to the reception desk and pay for the ounces you poured.

Can I just stop by for a beer without a spa treatment?

Please do! We love to have visitors stop by anytime. Pop in, grab a beer, and enjoy. We have a cozy taproom you’re welcome to hang out in whether you book a spa treatment or not.

Does Oakwell Beer Spa have anything else to drink besides beer?

Yes! We understand that beer isn’t everyone’s thing, or you might be in the mood for something else. That’s why we also have cider, wine, and kombucha.

Can I hang out in the taproom before and after my treatments?

Yes, you certainly can. Our cozy oasis taproom is perfect for hanging out before and after your spa day. Relax, read a book, or have a drink with friends – whatever you’d like!

See You This December!

Denver in December is an excellent time, and we hope we’ll see you at Oakwell Beer Spa for a relaxing spa paired with Living the Dream Brewing beers. You can schedule your spa day online or give us a call to book a party. You may also stop by to hang out in the taproom or treat yourself to a Zero Gravity Massage.
