The beer pool?

As I’ve seen first on Hail the Ale! and now Pfiff!, a resort in Austria is actually offering "beer baths" or pools filled with beer that people can, er, swim in.

The Starkenber Beer Myth resort located in and around the medieval castle of Starkenberger in Austria’s Tyrol region has filled seven 13ft long pools with the beer.

The management claims that beer baths heal various skin diseases.


Yeah, I don’t know. The three pictures I’ve seen of it so far just look entirely too gay. (Hey, don’t blame me—follow those links and see for yourself!)

    Gay? That’s the way they do it over there, man. Traditionally it’s thought that women don’t belong at the pub, er, pool. Anyway, a little strange either way.
