Matt About Town: Bathe in beer at this Maryland spa and alehouse

Maryland's newest beer spa gives you the full pampering package with a boozy twist!

Ever wondered what it’s like to bathe in beer? A Maryland spa and alehouse aims to give its guests the full pampering package, and it’s making quite the splash.

In today’s episode of “Matt About Town,” WTOP’s Matt Kaufax hops over to Carroll County to take a beer bath.

Founded by three Maryland entrepreneurs and hops enthusiasts, Greg Baron, Freddy Chiotti and Hector Enriquez, BierBath is the first establishment of its kind in the entire country; there are four other beer spas in the U.S., but BierBath is the only establishment with an alehouse attached (and it’s right here in the DMV!).

Come along with Matt as he spends an afternoon in the tub, getting the best of both worlds when it comes to total relaxation, and a little day drinking.
