Hop in the Spa’s treatment options range from their signature microbrew soak and hop oil massages to a hop body masque therapy and hop sugar scrub for the hands and feet, all of which feature hops as a main ingredient. There will soon also be a corresponding beer garden (Hop in the Garden) and a tea and coffee spot (Hop in the Cup) in Sisters. Boyle and Champa have additional plans to debut a second spa location in Bend and to sell their therapeutic bath brews (Hop in the Bath) online.
I’ve brought along my most adventurous friend, Alex, to share in this experience, so we opt for the 25-minute couples microbrew soak. (We’re relieved to hear no swimsuits are necessary—most guests choose to go in nude—and the 102-degree spring water, hops, malt, minerals, and lemon slices present no yeasty threat.)
