Helles Lager

Lager, 4.8% ABV This special lager is different from most others with its fuller body and touch of sweetness. The Helles Lager is the perfect balance of a sweet beer with German Hop flavors. It’s pale in color and offers a golden glow with low bitterness and a bread-like malt finish.

Watermelon Berliner Weisse

Sour, 4.2% ABV What’s better than a spa day paired with a light, tart, and sour beer? If you like sours, you’re going to love the Watermelon Berliner Weisse. This golden-colored Berliner is made with low-gravity wheat, pilsner malt base, and mixed with a lactobacillus culture. The final touch is a watermelon addition, which makes this thirst-quenching beer a must-try.  [caption id="attachment_4837" align="aligncenter" width="580"]Watermelon Berliner Weisse, Platt Park Brewing Watermelon Berliner Weisse, Platt Park Brewing[/caption]

September’s Beer Bath Blend at Oakwell Beer Spa

One of our most unique treatments at Oakwell Beer Spa is our Beer Bath Hydrotherapy, where you soak in a bubbly beer-infused bath as your stresses melt away. The cedar hydrotherapy tub is filled with a blend of hops, barley, and herbs. Enjoy rejuvenating bubbles as you sit back and relax. We use ingredients from a featured beer for the bath blend each month. September’s beer bath is brought to you by Platt Park’s Plattmosphere Hazy IPA. The bath blend consists of Columbus Hops, Pilsner Malt, and our herb-of-the-month Caraway Seed.  This bath blend is the ideal natural stress reliever. It also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, age spots, and skin blemishes.

Can I really drink beer during my spa treatments?

Of course! When you arrive for your appointment, you’ll receive a double-wall insulated stainless steel tumbler. You can use this to keep your beer cold while you hang out in the taproom and in your private Beer Therapy™ Room. Enjoy your ice-cold beverage while you relax in the sauna, soak in your beer bath, and rinse off in the rain shower. In your private Beer Therapy™ Room, you’ll also find a robe and slippers in case you want to head to the taproom to refill your tumbler during your spa treatments. We also have a ring bell system if you’d rather us fill your cup back up for you. Our Relaxation Lounge, where you can enjoy a Zero Gravity Massage, is the only place we ask that you don’t take your beverage.

What spa services do you offer anyways?

Unlike your traditional day spa, Oakwell Beer Spa offers one-of-a-kind services! These include Beer Bath Hydrotherapy, an Infrared Sauna treatment, and Zero Gravity Massage chairs. You can learn all about these services and our spa day packages here.

How does the self-serve beer wall work?

The self-serve beer wall is one of our most exciting features! This allows you to pour your beverages of choice for yourself. Best of all, it’s easy to use by following these simple steps:
  1. Use the card we’ll give you upon arrival to unlock the taps on the beverage wall.
  2. Check out our rotating selection of Platt Park Brewing beer. We also carry wine and cider if you’re looking for something different. On the beer wall, you’ll also find tasting notes and the price per ounce for each beverage.
  3. Choose your drink, scan your card, and pour any amount you’d like.
  4. When it’s time to check out, you can bring your card to the reception desk and pay for the ounces you poured.

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

Absolutely! We welcome visitors to come in and enjoy a beverage, whether you book a spa service or not. Our cozy taproom is the perfect place to kick back and sip a beer (or a few).

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

Yes, we offer a selection of beverages. We understand everyone isn’t into beer or might be in the mood for something else, so you can also enjoy wine, cider, tea, or kombucha.

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

Please do! Our taproom is open for you to hang out for as little or long as you’d like. You can arrive early or stick around after your spa day to spend time in the taproom with friends, your significant other, or solo.

See You Soon at Oakwell Beer Spa
