Ritz-Carlton Denver Now Offering a Beer Massage (Yes, It's Exactly What It Sounds Like)
Oktoberfest may be officially over according to the Germans, but there's still a way for you to soak in your love of beer, literally, at the Ritz-Carlton Denver thanks to their Mile High Malt Scrub and Microbrew Massage offered at the hotel's spa.
Here's how it works--arrive at the spa to check-in and instead of cucumber water, you'll get a chilled brew from a neighboring brewery put in your hands. Once that starts to kick in, you can begin your exfoliating Vichy shower experience. First, a barkeep, er, "treatment therapy provider", will mix a light rice Ale beer into the brewery's own malt. Then a full-body exfoliation is done on you using a malt scrub, followed by a body mask of dark rich Stout which apparently gives you a silky soft skin.
The treatment also includes a moisturizing scalp massage using beer and a full-body massage using the foam of a thick Yeti beer mixed with moisturizers. Whoa. Time to break out the beer goggles! Then as a bonus, you can take home the beers used and drank during your treatment.
The Mile High Malt Scrub & Microbrew Massage is available for $200, and takes about 75 minutes. We highly recommend getting a designated room for after the treatment. Those start at around $359 a night.
