People soak in a pool or spa to relax. People also like to have a drink or two for the same reason. So it's natural, then, that these two worlds would collide with the advent of the beer spa, spaces that offer the "hop-portunity" to both have a brew and bathe in it for utmost relaxation.
The concept is so popular, in fact, that beer spas can be found all over the planet. Looking to get a few stamps in your passport? To help, we put together a map of just some of the world's beer spas.* It should be noted that at every location, you can drink a cold pint while you relax.
*Prague seems to be a hub of beer spas with at least six different places offering the same experience. We listed the biggest (and most English-language friendly).
