Brew Treatments at The Edgewater Spa

Celebrating all things beer, The Edgewater’s brew-inspired spa treatments are available throughout the summer starting in June, and will include a taste of the beer that inspired each.

Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Collection Facial – This fruity 60-minute facial features botanical hyaluronic acidic products that nourish and moisturize the face, leaving it hydrated, smooth and glowing.  Following the treatment enjoy New Glarus Brewing Company’s Strawberry Rhubarb brew.  Created by Master Brewer Dan, the juicy sweet strawberries tame the barbaric wild tart fermentation of rhubarb creating a bright, sour, and effervescent brew.

60 minutes, $155

Himalayan Relaxation Massage – Relax and unwind as eighty-four essential minerals are massaged into the skin to replenish the body. Trained therapists apply heated or cooled salt stones to help generate negative ions, shown to create a sense of peace and a deeper sense of relaxation.  Other benefits include detoxing, insomnia reduction and stress relief. After the treatment, Odell Brewing Co Sippin’ Pretty Fruity Sour is served.  Brewed with acai, guava, and elderberry, this bright ruby red sour ale is balanced with a delicate addition of Himalayan pink sea salt to create a refreshingly tart finish.

60 minutes $175
