Starkenberger Brewery - An Austrian brewery castle where you can literally swim in beer Presenting the one place in the world where it's not girly to take a bubble bath: the centuries-old Austrian brewery Starkenberger, who've built the world's first-ever beer swimming pools in the recesses of their brew-castle, and, for a paltry fee, you can take a dip. Here's the skinny: Starkenberger Located a few hours outside Munich, the setting for the Starkenberger Brewery castle is pretty ridonkulous, though, with the glory that's awaiting for you inside, you probably won't want to spend too much time out there. As a brewery Starkenberger's been at it for more than a hundred years, and is currently (and always has been) run by women. Barrels are stored down in their super gothic cellar, which you could see if you dropped $10 on a brewery tour, but totally don't care about since you came for the beer pools! You've gotta make reservations in advance but for $298/ pool (and an additional $6.50/ person) this could be you sharing a beer pool with blonde coeds.
