The Austrian Beer Pool

London beer flood

Here’s something for any beer lover’s bucket list – a dip in a pool filled with beer.

You’ll have to fly to Austria, though. Starkenberger Castle in Austria, to be exact, which offers seven pools to swim in that are all filled with beer.

The beer pools opened in 2005 after the fermentation cellar of the 700-year-old castle became obsolete and each pool measures nearly four meters deep and contains about 42,000 pints of ale brewed at the Starkenberger brewery.

It’s not recommended that you actually drink what you’re backstroking in, but the good news is that you can order a draught to sip on while you swim.
