Come on, guys, be truthful. How many of you have ever fantasied about diving into a giant tub of frothy beer?

Well, now your ale dreams can come true with Ipswich Massage and Herbal Spa as they bring back their Father’s Day ExBEERience.

The venue has teamed up with local craft beer brewer 4 Hearts Brewing again to offer customers the chance to soak in a bath filled with beer.

In the past decade, beer spas have opened across Europe but the beery soak is yet to be offered anywhere else in Australia.

Not only is the bath relaxing, the vitamins and yeast in beer are cleansing for the skin.

Craft beer has many healthy properties, hops are a sedative, anti-inflammatory and have preservative properties.  And malt includes sugars that can nourish skin.

The one and a half hour treatment includes a 50 min Sports/Remedial Massage with hop-infused oil, a hop-infused body scrub and a bath in a 20 litre tub of 4 Hearts Pale Ale, mixed with hot water and hop flowers.

And to top it off, once the treatment is finished, customers can sit back and enjoy a pint of Pale Ale!

Owner of Ipswich Massage and Herbal Spa Sonja Glinster said the package has been a popular gift choice for Father’s Day.

“We have mentioned it to some of our regulars and they have already booked their dad in.”

But before lager lovers get too excited, Ms Glinster said the tub was filled with unfermented beer, so drinking the bath water wasn’t advised.

The Craft Beer Fathers Day EXBEERIENCE costs $150.
