10 Fun Facts About Oakwell Beer Spa, Denver

Now for the fun stuff! What makes this day spa so unique?

Oakwell Beer Spa was founded by a husband and wife team.

They quickly realized they were destined to be together, both professionally and personally. At the time, Jessica and Damien lived in New York City and enjoyed brainstorming business ideas in their apartment over a pint of beer. One day, they decided to quit their jobs, pack their bags, and head off on a trip around the world to find the perfect business idea. And they did! 

This day spa is the product of a 14-month adventure across 25 countries.

That’s right, Jessica and Damien spent over a year traveling to 25 countries on a quest for their dream business idea. They took on every experience as a fun adventure while examining each business model. From Mario Kart racing in Tokyo to RV sharing apps in the UK, they had an amazing and insightful journey exploring as much as possible.

The idea of Oakwell Beer Spa was born in Poland.

The concept of this unique day spa was born one day when Jessica and Damien were hanging out in a mountain town in Poland, Zakopane. It was raining, and they were looking for a fun indoor activity.  They found a beer spa close by and were instantly captivated. It wasn’t long before they were soaking in a bubbly beer bath, enjoying unlimited Polish beers.  This experience in Poland led them to realize that wellness, craft beer, and community could join together to become an excellent business venture. They set out to learn more about spa and bathing cultures worldwide. Before they knew it, they were creating a business plan for their very own beer spa.

Beer therapy is actually good for you.

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="580"]Beer Bath Hydrotherapy at Oakwell Beer Spa, Denver Beer Bath Hydrotherapy at Oakwell Beer Spa, Denver[/caption] People often wonder if a beer spa is actually good for you or if it’s just for fun. Well, it’s both! While a beer spa offers an exciting, one-of-a-kind experience, beer therapy is actually good for you. In fact, Damien’s grandfather knew about beer’s wellness properties many years ago. He actually used beer for his hair and skin back in the '60s. Beer bath hydrotherapy provides many benefits because beer's main ingredients, hops and malted barley, are packed with vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants. Here are just a few advantages bathing in beer can offer:
  • Induces relaxation and relieves stress
  • Smooths out fine lines and wrinkles
  • Washes away skin toxins and bacteria
  • Reduces skin redness and inflammation
  • Coats hair with a healthy, natural shine
  • Relieves muscle tension and joint pain
  • Increases blood flow and circulation
  • Stimulates metabolic rate and digestion
