During Denver Beer Fest the Ritz-Carlton Spa will offer two beer-infused spa treatments.

From Oct. 4 through 12, Denver Beer Fest will return to Denver as part of the Great American Beer Festival. During this week of October, the city will be filled with beer-themed events, and The Ritz-Carlton is participating with some interesting beer offerings.

Elway’s Downtown, the hotel’s signature restaurant, will only be pouring Colorado-brewed beer on-tap, like Left Hand’s Milk Stout and Coors’ Blue Moon, with daily happy hour in the bar or on the outdoor patio from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. But it’s the hotel’s spa that holds the main attraction: beer spa treatments.

The Ritz-Carlton Spa will offer two, 75-minute "ex'beer'iences" ideal for adventurous beer lovers, incorporating brews from the nearby Great Divide Brewing Company, according to a press release.

The "Hops N' Honey Ultimate Pedicure" will give customers a pedicure "embracing notes of amber, caramel, oats and honey," including a caramel foot mask, foot massage with whipped milk and honey lotion, and samplings of three microbrews or herbal teas during the treatment.

The "Mile High Malt Scrub & Microbrew Massage" starts off with a chilled brew served to the customer, who then gets to enjoy a full-body exfoliation with a malt-scrub made of light ale beer mixed into the brewery’s own malt. After a rinse, the customer will be treated with a mask of dark, rich, stout beer "helping to achieve silky soft skin." A scalp massage using beer is also performed, along with a massage using the foam of the thick Yeti beer mixed with moisturizing potions.

To top the experience off, more beer may be enjoyed in the relaxation lounge.
