Proprietor Mike Boyle tells me that he will be bringing a “beer spa” to Santa Barbara. The business name is “Hop in the Spa.” Boyle says that the idea for a beer spa came from Europe, where only a few of them involve actually dunking oneself in beer. Boyle discovered the concept via a pamphlet a friend gave him and began trying to figure out which hops might have the ideal effect. He once operated what he billed as “America’s First Beer Spa” in Sisters, Oregon, and that business is now closed. I don’t yet know the address of the future South Coast location.
