Avery Brewing at Oakwell Beer Spa: January 2024

If you’re looking for a unique activity this January in Denver, look no further than Oakwell Beer Spa. Start the new year with rejuvenating, beer-inspired spa services and craft beer from Avery Brewing Company.

Oakwell Beer Spa partners with a local Colorado brewery every month and shares five of its best beers with our guests. We’re so excited to be partnering with Avery for a second time. Their beers are delicious and perfect to enjoy alongside a relaxing spa day.

In this article, we’ll share what you can expect from Oakwell Beer Spa, how the experience works, and which Avery Brewing Company beers you can try during your spa day at Oakwell.

Fun Facts About Avery Brewing Company

Before we dive into which beers you can enjoy at Oakwell Beer Spa this January, let’s look at a few fun facts about Avery Brewing Company.

Avery Brewing Company logo
  • The brewery started when Founder Adam Avery was experiencing a “quarter-life crisis.” As a law school student and home brewer, he knew his passion was beer. With the help of Adam’s father, Larry, Avery Brewing Company opened in 1993 and has been making awesome beer ever since. 
  • The brewery started in a small garage in Boulder. When they outgrew that space, they opened another. They eventually outgrew two more spaces and finally opened their current brewing facility and restaurant in 2015.
  • The brewery now has ample space for innovation with better quality control and the ability to lower its carbon and water footprint.
  • The Avery Taproom and Restaurant has more than 30 taps of year-round beers and rotating seasonal taps. The food menu is locally sourced and changes to reflect seasonal fare. There’s ample indoor seating, and the patio is also the perfect space for fresh air and pets.
  • Avery Brewing Company has many award-winning beers, including the White Rascal, which has won three Great American Beer Festival medals and one World Beer Cup. The White Rascal is also their best-seller nationwide, with Avery IPA being a close second.
  • The Avery IPA is also head brewer Chris Cote’s favorite beer. He loves the piney, resinous notes and says, “It’s a classic style done very well and has a lot of history with Avery. It was the first bottled IPA in Colorado and is an earmark of our consistent quality.” Make sure you try this one at Oakwell Beer Spa this January!

Whether it’s your first time at Oakwell Beer Spa or want to learn more, we’ll answer common questions about the experience.

Can I really drink beer during my spa treatments?

Absolutely! Oakwell Beer Spa combines delicious beers and other tasty beverages with unique spa services for a relaxing experience unlike any other. 

You can drink in the taproom before and after your spa treatments and in your Private Beer Therapy Room™. The only place we ask you not to take your beverage is the Relaxation Lounge, where you can enjoy the Zero Gravity Massage experience. 

What spa services does Oakwell offer?

Oakwell Beer Spa is unlike any other spa. Instead of traditional manicures, pedicures, and facials, we offer unique treatments, including Beer Bath Hydrotherapy, Infrared Sauna, and Zero Gravity Massage

Services are usually for two people, but we also offer group packages for larger parties.

How does the self-serve beer wall work?

The self-serve beer wall is an easy way to enjoy beer at your leisure. When you arrive, a receptionist will walk you through the process with these simple steps:

  1. Use your scan card given by the receptionist to unlock the taps on the wall.
  2. Check out the rotating selection of Avery Brewing Company beers and other beverages, including wine and cider. There are also beer tasting notes and the price per ounce for each beverage.
  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 card to the receptionist to pay for the ounces you poured.

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

Of course! We love for guests to visit and hang out in the taproom. There’s plenty of comfortable seating for you to come and enjoy a drink or a few.

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

We understand beer isn’t everyone’s thing, or sometimes you’re up for something else. That’s why we also serve wine, cider, tea, and kombucha.

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

Please do. The taproom is available for you to spend time in for as long or as little as you’d like. It’s the ideal space for relaxing or socializing.
