1: Enjoy a beer in the shower at The DogHouse Hotel in Canal Winchester, Ohio
“Beer lovers, listen up. You have to check out this one-of-a-kind experience. Sure, you can make your own beer weekend on your own, but this takes all of the best parts and puts it in one place. They immerse you into the experience right at check in at 4 PM, when you get a complimentary beer to kick it all off. This could be a great weekend excursion for a group or an intimate getaway with your loved one. If you fancy yourself a shower beer, they have a fridge right next to the shower and a little nook in the shower itself to place your beers. Whichever you choose, visiting the “hoppiest place on Earth” is a must for beer lovers.” – Yelper Jasmine G

2: Connect with Mama Nature at Hop Springs Beer Park in Murfreesboro, Tennessee

Yelp insight: This spot is noted for being especially dog and family friendly!
3: Sleep in a historic brewery with The Brewhouse Inn & Suites in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
“Spent a few nights here when we were in town for a wedding and am truly impressed with everything they have done to restore this old (Pabst) brewery into a fantastic hotel. They really kept so many of the architectural and structural elements of the brew house and made the rooms amazingly spacious, comfortable, and functional. Great place to stay and spend time if you are interested in the history of brewing in Milwaukee.” -Yelper Michael K
Yelp Insight: If you’re a sucker for historical buildings with lofty ceilings, exposed brick and beams, this is the place for you.
4: Beer meets circus at Bircus Brewing in Ludlow, Kentucky
“Bircus is definitely doing something unique. If you haven’t figured it out by their name, the brewery is circus influenced and will have tons of entertainment on a daily basis (think sweet DJs, aerial artists, fire spinning and more!). Not only does Bircus put on a good show, but the beer is also a show-stopper.” –Yelper Megan B
Yelp Insight: This brewery-meets-theatre is drawing attention to the small Ludlow community south of Cincinnati.
5: Get a beer pedicure at Anjou Spa in Bend, Oregon
“This is a full service spa with seasonal specials mostly targeted toward women but, YES, ladies take your man, boy toy. or whatever as Anjou is very accommodating with a men’s area with shower and men’s product. I’d say this would be a great spa if you’re taking your man out for his first mani-pedi or couples massage.” -Yelper Rick J
Yelp Insight: Via “The Ale-ing Foot Remedy” customers can soak their feet in warm beer while sipping on a cold one. Shed rough edges with an antibacterial crushed barley and hops foot scrub made in-house.
6: Experience pierogies and pews at The Church Brew Works in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
“This is definitely a must-see brewery! I don’t know the genius who thought it would be a good idea to use an old church as a brewery but it works! The inside is incredibly impressive; beautiful stained glass, high ceilings and great wood work.” -Yelper Lauren J
Yelp Insight: The Church Brew Works is located inside the historic St. John the Baptist Church, which was constructed in 1902. Skip the lines and snag a spot on NoWait!
