December’s Beer Bath Blend at Oakwell Beer Spa

Oakwell Beer Spa’s signature spa service is the Beer Bath Hydrotherapy, a warm, bubbly beer bath. You’ll relax in a cedar hydrotherapy tub with thousands of tiny calming bubbles and a therapeutic beer bath blend.

This month, the bath blend is made with Sterling Hops and Rahr Pale Malt from New Terrain’s Joshua Tree IPA and our herb of the month, Mistletoe.

Sterling Hops and Rahr Pale Malt have beneficial vitamins, antioxidants, and nutrients for the ultimate skin, mind, and body treatment. Mistletoe is rich in antioxidants and gives your skin a natural glow and the hydration it craves during winter.

Can I really drink beer during my spa treatments?

Yes, guests are more than welcome to drink beer while enjoying spa treatments. Not only is New Terrain’s beer delicious, but it also helps with relaxation.

When you arrive at Oakwell Beer Spa, we’ll give you a double-wall insulated stainless steel tumbler you can use in the taproom and your private Beer Therapy™ Room. The tumbler will keep your drink ice cold, even when you’re relaxing in the sauna and warm beer bath.

The only place we ask guests not to take drinks is the Relaxation Lounge, where you can enjoy a Zero Gravity Massage experience.

What spa services does Oakwell offer?

Oakwell Beer Spa takes spa day services up a notch with unique beer-inspired treatments. Our services include Beer Bath Hydrotherapy, Infrared Sauna, and Zero Gravity massage.

When you make an appointment, you get access to a private Beer Therapy™ Room, with a relaxation deck, rain shower, infrared sauna, and cedar hydrotherapy tub. We also have group and party spa day packages.

How does the self-serve beer wall work?

Unlike any other spa, Oakwell Beer Spa has a beer wall that lets you pour your own beverages. When you arrive, a receptionist will walk you through the process to follow these simple steps:

  1. You’ll receive a card to scan, which unlocks the taps on the wall.
  2. Explore the rotating selection of New Terrain Brewing Company beers and other beverages, including wine and cider. You’ll also see beer tasting notes and the price per ounce for each drink.
  3. Choose 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?

Absolutely! Guests can stop by to hang out in the taproom with or without an appointment. Get comfortable in the cozy taproom, enjoy a drink, and have fun with our conversation cards or simply relax.

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. You can also have wine, cider, tea, kombucha, or beer at Oakwell.

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

Please do! The taproom is a peaceful and comfortable space that’s open for you to hang out at your leisure.
