"Hopping" into the spa business

Posted: Updated:

Oregon beer enthusiasts aren't just drinking it, they're soaking it in at the nation's first beer spa.

"You're going to soak in a proprietary blend of beer, hops, barley and some herbs," explains Sally Champa, owner at Hop in the Spa in Sisters.

It's more than just soaking in beer: A bath in brew may be good for you. Many people swear by hops' medicinal qualities in getting rid of pain and aches.

"It's great for insomnia, relaxation," says Champa.

"I used it and my pains went away and I slept great," says Mike Boyle, Chief "Hoptimisitic" Officer at Hop in the Spa.

After Boyle got into a car accident, he experienced a beer spa in Europe and knew the industry was hopping

"One day we talked about this and it just happened that I said, 'Let's hop into the spa business," he says.

After only a week in business, they're already expanding.

"Hop in the Garden which will be our beer garden and then Hop in the Cup which will be a new coffee that has hops in it," he says.

But for those hoping to get tipsy off the tub...

"You will not get drunk soaking in beer," says Champa. (KTVZ)
