Kicking off during Craft Beer Week on May 7 and offered throughout the summer, The Spa at The Edgewater presents - Brew-Inspired Summer Spa Treatments – blending key ingredients like coffee, vanilla bean, apricots, peaches and cranberries into soothing spa treatments that are topped off with sips of some of Wisconsin’s finest handcrafted beers.
“Many of the vitamin-infused ingredients found in quality craft beers lend themselves to nourishing spa treatments, too,” says Spa Director Kelleye Heydon. “It seemed like a natural fit to blend the two, and we had fun putting together treatments that paid tribute to local favorites.”
Door County Brewing Co Silurian Stout Body Treatment
This caffeinated treatment offers a jolt of renewal! Begin with a Triple Shot Caramel Coffee Scrub featuring shea butter, sugar and a kick of caffeine and Arabica bean extract. A dark chocolate mask, with anti-aging CoQ10 enzymes is then applied, leaving skin caressed and ultra-smooth. After this power packed mask has helped to renew, you’ll enjoy a light Sweet Cream Body Milk Lotion application, sealing in moisture with a blend of natural oils, including jojoba and sweet almond.
Following the treatment, dive into the delicious depths of a Silurian Vanilla Milk Stout with chocolate and dark malts, a hint of coffee, lactose sugar and vanilla bean. Ruling land and sea, this legendary milk stout is unlike anything of our time.
