What is a beer bath?
A beer bath is a kind of Jacuzzi filled with beer, whether dark, blonde or even amber. It may sound funny, but there is nothing surprising about this practice.

Beer bath in Prague, what you should know
Once you’re there, don’t worry, you won’t have to do much. In fact, you will be provided with a bathrobe, towels and even slippers. We recommend that you arrive 15 to 20 minutes before your beer spa begins so that you have time to get ready.
Also keep in mind that each tub can accommodate a maximum of 2 people. Finally, a specific recommendation, but one that is important, beer baths recommend not washing within 12 hours of the spa, so that the body can fully benefit from the action of the malt, hops and yeast.
