One mile below the village of Calistoga, California swells a chamber of magma, where the water seeps down through the porous rock and rises up in steamy surges, warming the natural mud baths in the spa where you now relax neck-deep in that soothing ooze.  And as the beady perspiration gathers about your brow, you reach for a pint of this remarkably refreshing, reddish-brown brew, which offers an admirable balance between the backdrop of aromatic and bready malts and the amenable expression of hops, with their ticklish bitterness and rustic, minty flavors.  So go ahead, sink deeper into that massaging mud and admire the steamy tendrils’ dance, for this volcanic spa sooths your body, and this ambrosial steam beer soothes your soul.
