And you thought peeing in the pool was a problem BEFORE.

Thousands upon thousands of dollars spent on beer that has bees, twigs and leaves and shiat floating in it, and that's most likely been pissed in by drunks?

Jesus, I'd hate to see what one of submitter's bad ideas look like.

"These pools really can help some health problems - but if they don't work for you, you'll probably have drunk enough not to care about it anymore."

I wish the same could be said of Shasta's TIKI PUNCH (TM).

I really, really do.

This is one of those things where it sounds like a cool idea at first, but then, when you really think about it, you realize it's a terrible idea. There'd be leaves and shiat floating in it, plus you'd be all sticky and you'd reek like beer when you got out.

We have a saying about the Austrians over here: "Narrow valleys breed narrow minds".

Those narrow minds manage to come up with ideas that are absolutely spectacular or spectacularly horrible.

Are they going to circulate the beer so it doesn't get all stank after a few days?

This sounds really bad. You'd be very sticky from the beer after. Also I bet many people would urinate in it. My cousin bought this beer mug in the shape of a breast where you drink from the nipple. Much better.

Does have certain mad genius to it. They're obviousely trying to get over the whole "we gave the world Adolf Hitler and Joseph fritzl" thing. As such: well done Austrians.

Bathers can even drink from the 13ft beer pools if they wish, although there are several bars around the poolside promising a cleaner pint.
Yeah right, I wouldn't want to drink beer that's had some other bloke's dick in it. Or hundreds of dicks come to that.

The Starkenberger beer myth resort

from the resort's own description:

Another highlight which is featured in your tour is the world's only 'beer-swimming-pools'. The pools and the entire room have been decorated by Wernfried Poschusta who is a local artist who is furthermore internationally recognized. There is a total of seven pools who can accomodated four persons each and they are filled with oddments of the beer production, which are very rich in vitamins and calcium, and warm water. Just let us know your prefered temperature. Those bath are very beneficial for dirty skin, open wounds and psoriasis. Additionally such a bath activates the blood circulation and smoothes your skin. The included hops have a calming impact on body and soul.

//// No leaves.

//// Alcohol kills germs as effectively as clorine.

//// I'm giving it a try. Loves me some oddments.

I remember seeing Liberace on the Muppet Show in the late '70s. I was reliably* informed that he had a swimming pool of champagne with working piano-keys all around the edge.

/* by "reliably" I mean that my pre-tween self was probably being fed BS by one of my older sisters
 
2009-11-04 06:49:15 AM
Pool? No. As stated above, lots of problems and waste with this idea.

Spa-like tub, for one (maybe two)? I'd give it a shot. Plus you'd save boatloads on costs. If it has such great effects, I wouldn't mind kicking back and watching a movie while in one.

/what temperature is the beer?

Wouldn't a pool filled with a fermented yeast liquid be unhealthy for women?

/Seriously, I don't know the answer but seems logical that it wouldn't be.

no thanks, I really prefer a pool with chlorinated water and a nice beer in a bottle on the side of the pool.

some things aren't really as good as they sound at first glance.

They claim beer can treat skin conditions, blood circulation and help cure wounds.

In the United States that claim would turn the pool of beer from a recreational facility to an FDA-regulated medical device and the public would not be allowed to swim until the owner had run the millions of dollars worth of tests to prove beerpool "safe and effective."

For those of you that are making references to Australia, please tell me this is a joke, and not some horrific reading comprehension fail.

Well, I guess there is hope for the younger generation yet.

I don't think I'd participate but if I was poolside and some Hot Babe decided to go skinny dipping, I think my head would asplode.

You know who *else* had spectacularly horrible ideas?

Seriously, though, I'm surprised subby didn't go with an Australian joke. This story could work either way.

Ummm. Let me dip my mug in some of that warm, festering wound beer.
