Weird News Of The Day-World's first beer health spa

The world's first beer health centre has opened in the cellar of a family brewery in the Czech Republic.
Beer baths, beer massages and beer cosmetics are on offer at the spa at the Chodovar Family brewery in Chodova Plana.
The converted cellars include seven huge Victorian style baths where guests can swim in beer while enjoying a pint poured at a bathside bar.
Guests on £80 weekend packages can indulge in a range of health treatments including beer wraps, starting at £12 per session.
Owner Jiri Plevka said: "Beer can treat a range of conditions, particularly skin conditions, and the health centre should appeal to men who are put off by 'posh' traditional spas.
"I have heard of some places in other countries where people can swim in beer but it's just a gimmick.
"We believe in the healing properties of beer and we offer the full range of treatments. We are a fully-fledged beer spa."
