Ryan Summerlin February 8, 2013
VAIL – The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Vail, a Forbes five-star spa, announced its new “Brew & Renew” offerings for male patrons this week. The spa partnered with Edwards-based Crazy Mountain Brewing Company, the valley’s first production brewery, to create these treatments.”We are excited to collaborate with Crazy Mountain, a local business,” said Craig Newton, director of The Spa. “We are known for innovation, and with Brew & Renew, our male guests have something tailored just for them.”Sample Brew & Renew treatments include:Amber Ale Foot Soak: A foot bath filled with a fresh beer from Crazy Mountain Brewery’s Amber Ale batch. The guest enjoys an Amber Ale while relaxing with a crushed barley and malt foot scrub, finished off with a light foot rub, using hop oil. The yeast from the beer bath promotes a purifying and cleansing effect on the feet. Extremely beneficial for any mild fungal issues, the scrub benefits circulation and removes excess skin buildup making the feet smooth and fresh. Cara de Luna Black Ale Wrap: An all-natural wrap is made of spent grains directly from the brewery’s darkest beer, Cara De Luna Black Ale. While the wrap is drying on the body and removing toxins, a mixture of the ale is frothed into a honey base and gently massaged into the hair. The wrap is removed by a warm Mountain Living Pale Ale Bath mixed with citrus-infused bath salts and essential oils to soothe and moisturize the skin. Spent grains contain many of the beneficial yeasts from the brewing process, bringing many skin enhancing and balancing properties to the body. The native grains remove toxins from the body while firming and toning the skin.Lava Lake Pub Scrub: A foamy mixture of our house blended sea salt and a can of Lava Lake Wit exfoliates the skin and refreshes the body by adding vitamins and folic acid to dry or under-nourished skin. Followed by warm beer being gently poured over the body and removed with hot moist towels, the skin is left feeling silky smooth. A quick rinse in the shower is followed by an application of hop-infused massage oil. This scrub removes excess dry skin and increasing circulation. The Lava Lake Wit has hints of chamomile, which is soothing, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. In addition to these treatments, guests can enjoy a “Brewsage,” a massage incorporating hop oil, and a refreshing soak entitled “Beer Brew Bath.””Beer has many health benefits, such as containing a surprising number of vitamins, antioxidants, polyphenols and other beneficial minerals,” said Marisa Selvy, co-owner of Crazy Mountain.For pricing, more information and to book a treatment, call 970-477-8600.
