Czech Beer Baths

So I randomly came across this special interest news story about Czech Beer Baths. Somehow the idea of taking a bath in beer caught my attention. Maybe because the idea of taking a bath in something you usually drink sounded stupid to me. But then I realized that I usually drink water too. Okay I admit - it was this picture of a dude sitting in beer. I wanted to find out what the hell his deal was. Because dude, he's sitting in beer.

The owners of the Chodovar Brewery in the small Czech town of Chodova Plana launched beer baths with the goal of tempting tourists to their new hotel. Mojmir Prokes, the young manager of the hotel and the adjoining beer spa explains:
"We had the beer, we had a mineral spring nearby and we came up with the idea of beer baths"
What this news story fails to point out is that "Mojmir Prokes" is really Czech for "Frank the Tank" -- a fraternity brother at the University of Prague chapter of Sigma Chi. He actually came up with the idea during a house party -- after running out of space in the fridge, he filled the backyard jacuzzi with ice, bottles of Perrier and cheap beer. The residue that remained at the bottom the next morning proved to be a hit with the frat-douches who passed out 4 hours earlier while digging around for one last brew-dog.

Just like all fancy spas today, The Beer Spa is not only committed to treating the body, but also the soul. Next month, they'll be offering their first group-bonding sessions based on the elephant walk.
