Discover the powers of beer

 While it is impossible to trace the exact origin of beer, we know that it has been around since at least 3400 B.C. and in all likelihood, centuries before that. Residue of the first known barley beer was found in a jar at the Godin Tepe excavation site in modern-day Iran, thousands of years ago. Egyptian Pharaohs were known to be buried with beer to take a pint or two with them to the after-life. A 6000-year-old Sumerian tablet depicts people consuming beer through straws and even contains the one of the first recorded recipes for brews. 

Our ancestors were almost certainly much less wasteful than we are today, and there is evidence of past civilizations using beer for more purposes than just filling their bellies with it. Bathing in beer and the various components in its make-up such as brewer’s yeast, hops, and barley, has been around for much longer than any of us have. We think our ancestors were on to something. 

Our mission is to bring a similar kind of outlet to a modern world through our beer soaks, massages, salt room (halotherapy), steam room, sauna, etc. While we have made great progress in every facet of life since the days of the Mesopotamians and Egyptian Pharaohs, we know that it’s become more and more difficult to find an outlet of relaxation in today’s fast-paced world. If we can create an experience for you that will make you forget the stresses of daily life, then we have succeeded in our mission. You can go to any spa to relax. But we wanted to create a more natural oasis for mind, body, and spirit. Our greatest glory is in making our customers feel relaxed, moisturized, and overall simply amazing. Come see why more and more celebrities are opting for the powers of beer soak treatments.
