From my morning prep sheet, there is a resort in Starkenberger, Austria that has 3 5,000 gallon swimming pools full of beer!

Heh, all the shots have men in them and I like to think it's because no woman would have any interest in doing this. Also, and I'm not entirely up on the substance so correct me if this isn't the case, wouldn't it be really sticky? I just imagine it being that way, but have no grounds for those feelings.

I imagine that a woman would get a yeast infection about 7 seconds after diving into one of those pools.

I really see no point in it other than as some sort of Peter Griffin fantasy.

Isn't the yeast dead already once the beer is refrigerated? Or maybe they'll cut out the middleman and just brew it in the pool.

However swimming and alcohol? That's an accident waiting to happen.

I heard about this on the radio yesterday. Apparently, swimming in the beer is supposed to cure all kinds of ailments and clean your skin and stuff. I doubt any of that is true. It seems kind of gross actually. What a sticky once you get out.

I love me some beer, but this sounds like a terrible, terrible idea.

Yeast infections are caused by a different microbe anyway, I believe.

The yeast wouldn't be dead, just dormant.

I think it'd be an interesting feeling to swim in a carbonated liquid, but you would definitely want a good shower afterwards.

What a silly, wasteful idea.
