The Starkenberg Brewery in Austria has filled one of its seven heated swimming pools with 42,000 pints of beer to create the boozy hot tub.

Andrea Stigger, who works at the brewery, said that a stint in the tub leaves people’s skin soft and smooth, and can even help treat skin conditions like psoriasis.

Her boss came up with the idea as a way of attracting new visitors to the brewery and giving them a chance to relax while on a tour of the facility.

And yes, it is drinkable – although the brewery warns that the beer may be quite bitter because it is heated.

“If you like warm beer, you can help yourself”, she said.
