If You Can't Drink It ... Bathe In It!

I have stated before that I am not a big drinker, but when I do drink I like the occasional beer or two. I'm not into fancy drinks, just a nice cold bottle of beer ususally makes me happy.

That being said, I havent had a beer in over 7 months. While I dont think about it on a regular basis, when I see people drinking beer it definitely looks pretty tasty. The other day at a Cubs game I could smell the beer the couple next to me was drinking ... and it smelled quite delicious.

I think I might have found another way (without having Baby Schneider get wasted) to enjoy beer - a beer spa! Supposedly its popular in the Czech Republic. At the Prave Pivni Lazni (the original beer spa) run by the Chodovar brewery in the Czech town of Chodova Plana, you can partake in a spa treatment in which beer is the magic ingredient. These spas can also be found in a couple of other countries like the one below - the beer spa at Landhotel Moorhof in Franking, Austria.

I wonder if you take a really cold beer spa (while you are drinking a really cold beer) if it would have similar effects to an after-run ice-bath? Now that would be some interesting research....
