Brewer Offers Suds For The Tub

Can’t afford a champagne bath? Tired of floral-scented bubbles? A German brewer has the answer: bathing beer.

The Kloster brewery in Neuzelle, 60 miles southeast of Berlin, plans to begin selling three-quart bottles of dark beer concentrate next month. Mixed with water, four bottles, at $22 each, are enough to fill the average 32-gallon tub.

The only difference between the beer concentrate and the normal drinking suds is that the yeast, normally filtered out, is left in, brewery owner Helmut Fritsche said Wednesday.

“You can bathe in it, or drink it,”Fritsche said. “Whoever wants to can do both.”
